Summer is upon us and, if we’re not careful, we might blink and miss it! That’s why we wanted to take some time to encourage you to get outside and get to camping! The Namekagon River offers phenomenal camping experiences. All we’re asking is that you take one weekend this summer to spend a night under the stars. Your family will thank you later.

Sawyer County boasts some great tent camping options right along the river. Farther north you have ROAM Adventure Basecamp featuring modern and imaginative trailside camping and outdoor sports venue located in Seeley, Wisconsin. Get away at the Hayward KOA – which is an award-winning, family-oriented, critically-acclaimed, activity-filled, exceptionally-located camping destination. Bringing the camper? Stay at River Road RV Park & Campground. Otherwise, Camp Namekagon RV Park & Campground in Hayward, WI offers quiet, clean, spacious campsites, modern bath facility with flush toilets and private showers, cabins for rent, and picnic areas.

Did you know that at Jack’s Canoe Rental you can rent a campsite, as well? Jack’s offers limited/primitive camping with comparable amenities to that found on the riverway campsites.

Guess what? There are SO many more places to stay! Be sure to check out all of your Sawyer County campgrounds HERE.

Again, if tent camping isn’t your style, check out these great stays along the river. Lenroot Lodge, The Riverside Motel, and Lake Point Lodge will all give you incredible postcard views of the Namekagon River. With nearly a quarter of the Namekagon flowing through Sawyer County, it’s no wonder why the area is a popular stop for folks visiting this little known national park.

Wherever you visit, we hope you find great joy as you explore the river! We ask that you treat it like your home and clean up after yourself when you pack up for the weekend. Welcome to the Northwoods. Now, get to planning! Thank you!
