Peshtigo River State ForestCurrent conditions

Conditions as of Thursday, January 18, 2018:

Wintertime in Peshtigo River State Forest

Snow is here! Ice fishermen are having success with panfish on High Falls.


Trails are open and snow covered. The road, Aspen Ridge and the Bid Oak Loop have been groomed and tracked at Spring Rapids. Conditions are improving with the new snow but it is still bumpy and there is still some vegetation sticking through the snow in spots. We still NEED more snow. Updated trail conditions are posted on under Trail Conditions.

The Peshtigo River State Forest will Not be hosting a candlelight ski in 2018. Please attend the Gov. Thompson State Park Candlelight Ski February 17. Please check the website for more information.


Old Veteran's Campground is closed for the season. Boat access sites are open year-round.
