    Default Mosquito Alert

    Mosquito alert on the trail off of Hwy 28 just east of Kewauskum!

    Ice Age: is overnight along the trail there just in shelters? I'm thinking of heading out tomorrow night (7/14).

    MMG: Here is the relevant section from the DNR site, I plan on calling the Forest Supervisor today and clarifying that all camping in the KM Forests must be done at campgrounds or shelters. I'll post the info in the sticky thread at the top of the forum.

    "Backpack shelters are available year round for rustic camping along the 31.65 miles [PDF, 32KB] of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail and at the Zillmer Trail [PDF, 226KB]. Each site offers a roofed trail shelter, fire ring and pit toilet. Registered campers may gather dead and downed trees for firewood.
    These sites are not accessible by vehicle. All camping equipment must be backpacked in and all refuse packed out. A camping permit is required and you must camp at a designated shelter campsite.
    Only one reservation (camping party) is allowed per site per night. Reservations are limited to ten persons per site and are limited to one night per site. Another site may be reserved for a 2nd night at a 2nd site or a 3rd night at a 3rd site. You must call Reserve America at (888) 947-2757, TTY (800) 274-7275 to make backpack shelter reservations—backpack shelter reservations cannot be made on the Web.
    If you do not have a reservation, you must stop in at either the Forest Headquarters, Ice Age Visitor Center or Mauthe/Long Lake Entrance Stations (when open) to obtain a camping permit. Site availability is limited for spring and fall weekends--reservations are recommended. A reservation is required for stays longer than two nights along the trail.
    Hint: If all the backpack sites are reserved on a Saturday night in spring or fall (which is not unusual), you may want to consider staying a night at the Mauthe Lake Family Campground. Call for more information. "
