Brunet Island State Park, on the Chippewa and Fisher rivers, offers more than 1,300 acres of scenic beauty and recreational opportunities. Quiet lagoons and channels are excellent for canoeing and wildlife watching. The rolling landscape in Chippewa County is a product of the most recent Ice Age. The park links to the Old Abe State Trail which runs from Cornell to Chippewa Falls.
Come join me camping in the north campground. The north campground is on the water and you can launch a kayak or canoe directly from most of the sites! The Old Abe State Trail is a 20 mile paved bike trail accessible from the park. I’ve booked campsites 34 and 35 (close, but not adjacent), so we can fit 4-6 tents comfortably.
- Provide/haul your own kayak or canoe, or borrow a boat from the Rovers equipment locker.
- I own two kayaks and will be bringing both if needed.
- Food, equipment, and transportation is up to each participant.
- Limited to 2 cars per campsite (4 total!) Carpooling highly encouraged.
- CASAUL TRIP – No formally organized activities – come camp and hang out with other Rovers and go paddling, biking, or hiking whenever you feel like it. We’ll likely have a campfire each evening, depending on the weather.
- I’ll arrive at the campsites around 5pm. Please show up before 9pm so that we respect the campground policy of no setups or take-downs between 10pm and 6am.
- We will equally split the cost of the campsites at the end of the trip. I spent $116 on the campsites in total.
