Ojibwa City Park
We woke this morning to a torrential downpour. Biggest storm intensity and duration yet. Streams of water came down either side of the road and our fire pit was filled with five inches of water.
We headed north with Black Lake CG in the northern part of the Chequamegon-Nicolet NF as our goal. We stopped for lunch at the Ojibwa City Park. The stream through it was really raging from the earlier storm. Nice park with picnic tables and an old river stone pavilion.
After lunch we walked about the park and after finding what lovely, electrified sites they have here, decided to spend the night. The sites are very private, but it hardly matters as the only other site occupied is the host. It is so hot and humid, we really thought it would be nice to be able to use our air conditioning a bit.
There are 16 RV sites here with picnic tables, electric, and fire ring. Amenities include a dump, firewood for sale, showers and flush toilets, and some short hiking trails. $20 for an electric site for the night (16) and $15 for the three tent sites. Virtually no ATT service here, even with boosters.
About 3:00 when it started to cool down, we went for a 2-mile hike, taking the connector from the campground to the Turkey Feather Nature Trail, a well-maintained loop trail down to the Chippewa River. Today there were a lot of very wet spots because of a 4-inch rain this morning, but in general they have either put rock in low places or built walkways and bridges.
When we returned to our campsite, the town manager stopped by to check on us. Told us how the State used to run this campground but didn’t keep it up, so in 1990 the town took it over. They are continually upgrading it. Very nice. A real gem.
