Northern Lights and Ice Age campgrounds are closed for the season. A portion of Quartzite Campground will remain open throughout the winter. After the water is shut off in Quartzite Campground, the non-flush restroom buildings will be open and one winterized water tap will be available.

Reservations are highly recommended for any summer camping trips and for spring and fall weekends.
