Perch Lake


Perch Lake is one of the walk-in camp areas in the Nicolet. Located just west of Whisker Lake Wilderness, this trail circles picturesque Perch Lake. If you're interested in a secluded camping experience, this trail leads to five walk-in campsites with tent pads, tables, fire rings, and wilderness-style toilets. There is no drinking water supplied.
