Chain O’Lakes Campground is a highly-rated, dog-friendly campground located in Eagle River, Wisconsin. The Vilas County that the campground is located in is a fisherman’s paradise as it features over 750 lakes. The wooded campground sits by the Little Bass Lake and provides easy access to the Eagle River Chain O’Lakes, making it the dream destination for anglers and water sports enthusiasts. However, even if you are not planning on kayaking, water skiing, or catching bluegills and bass, the campground offers plenty of alternative ways you can have some outdoor fun with your friends, family, and four-legged family members.
The Chain O’Lakes campground offers short and long-term rentals of cozy and deluxe cabins, furnished condominiums that overlook the lake, RV sites with electric and water hookups, and spacious tent sites. Each of the campsites comes with a picnic table and a fire pit perfect for making s’mores. The campground is heavily wooded, surrounded by fragrant pines that provide plenty of shade for humans and canines alike to cool off in the summer, whether it be with a book on a hammock or with a chew toy on the lush, well-manicured grass. Restrooms and laundry facilities are available at the campground. Tents sites start at $29 per night and RV sites are from $31 per night but vary depending on the season. Cabins start at $59 and condos at $69 per night, but neither allow dogs.
Visitors can rent kayaks, canoes, and pontoons in the area as well as enjoy water sports such as swimming, waterskiing, wakeboarding, sailing, and scuba diving. For those who prefer to stay dry, there are several hiking trails in the nearby Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest that lead to stunning viewpoints and provide plenty of opportunities for wildlife viewing. Common encounters include whitetail deer, raccoons, and red fox. Please make sure to keep your pooch leashed at all times and pack plenty of doggie waste bags to keep the trails clean.
In terms of on-site activities and attractions, visitors get to choose from cooling off in the swimming pool, breaking a sweat on the tennis or basketball court, and playing volleyball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, or badminton. There is also a playground that the little campers can enjoy as well as tasty snacks from the camp store.
