Minong, Wis. (May 2, 2013) – What could be better than waking up in the morning and being able to head right out on the ATV trails for the day? The new Minong ATV Campground will allow you to do just that. The campground is scheduled to open on May 17th and is located at 802 S. Railroad St., along the Wild Rivers State Trail in Minong and features 10 RV Sites and 5 Tent Sites. RV Sites offer electric, water and sewer. Amenities include a dump station, trailer parking, comfort station, grills, pavilion and WIFI. The Minong Trails Club, with the help of Washburn County Forestry, submitted a grant in 2011 to establish the campground on the Village of Minong’s property. The building of the campground was completed in the fall of 2012 and will be maintained by the Minong Trails Club.
Minong, located in Washburn County, is surrounded by hundreds of miles of ATV & UTV trails. The beauty of the Northwoods make the nearby trail systems some of the best in the Midwest. The Wild Rivers Trail runs from Rice Lake, directly through Washburn County, north to Superior and connects with the Tri-County corridor. Many beautiful ATV trails connect to the Wild Rivers Trail such as the Stony Brook Trail east of Minong. “ATVing is an extremely popular activity in Washburn County,” said Michelle Voight, Washburn County Tourism Director, “The campground will offer great trail-access camping and will allow ATV enthusiasts to hop on the trail and ride directly from their campsite. We are looking forward to the opening of the new campground to better serve our many ATV visitors.”
The Wild Rivers State Trail is open all year; however the county forest trails are not scheduled to open until the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Please check trail conditions prior to riding by calling 1-800-367-3306 or visiting www.washburncounty.org/tourism.
