The Smith Rapids Campground will remain closed for the 2018 camping season. It is anticipated that the campground will open for the 2019 camping season. This closure only impacts the campground - the picnic area will still be open with vehicle access and parking available providing river and horse trail access. The toilet building will be available; the picnic area will be mowed, public water supply available, and garbage service available.

Open year-round. The campground has 11 sites and is located on the South Fork of the Flambeau River (smallmouth bass, rock bass, catfish, black suckers, red horse, walleye, northern pike, musky). It provides an ideal focal point for hiking, river fishing, horseback riding (campsite equipped with tie stalls and trailer parking designed for horse camping) and canoeing. Seven campsites are designed to accommodate horse trailers with extra long parking spurs, hitching rails, picnic tables, and fire grills. A carry-in boat access, vault toilets and day use picnic area are also provided. There is also an additional parking lot across the road from the picnic area for equestrian use. A special feature near this campground is the Smith Rapids Covered Bridge. For campsite or pavilion reservation information, call 1-877-444-6777 or go to www.recreation.gov. (Winter camping – vault toilets, no water, no plowed roads or services.)
