IRON COUNTY PARKS AND CAMPGROUNDS
**THIS PROPERTY RECEIVED SIGNIFICANT STORM DAMAGE IN JULY 2016 AND IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.
Per Saxon Harbor Facebook post dated August 10, 2016: “Northern Wisconsin received a Federal Disaster Declaration. This is the key to being able to rebuild Saxon Harbor. We are going to work very hard to get the Harbor and Campground rebuilt and operational as soon as possible. Right now we can say it is going to be a minimum of two years before we are open again."
Reconstruction of harbor assets is critical to restoring economic stability to the region and ensuring safe navigation on Lake Superior. As the focus shifts from response to recovery, a window of opportunity exists to develop a concept plan for the reconstruction of the harbor and adjoining area. The purpose of this survey is to collect public input which will help inform the planning and redevelopment of Saxon Harbor. Please click on the link below to take the quick 23 question survey.
"In the meantime, Saxon Harbor and campground will remain closed, as well as the facilities. We are considering the possibility of opening the west boat launch and parking area for spring 2017 fishing, but only for transient boats.”
Call the Forestry Department at (715)561-2697 during office hours to reserve. $10 reservation fee applies to each reservation. Monthly, weekly and daily rates. Please register at the self registration station upon entering the campground. Website: ironcountyforestry
