Perhaps the most accessible historic site in the Chequamegon National Forest is Mondeaux Flowage Recreational Area. Construction on the Mondeaux Dam, associated buildings, and campgrounds began in 1937. Built as CCC and WPA projects, the Mondeaux Flowage Recreation Area displays the trademark quality workmanship of these organizations. With four campgrounds (Eastwood, Spearhead Point, Picnic Point and West Point), a 416-acre lake offering swimming, boating, and fishing, and several trails, the Mondeaux Recreation Area has something for everyone.

Several recreation sites within MFRA can be accessed from the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Many campsites can be reserved through a campground reservation system. Please use the links below for additional information.
