WI: Visit Nugget Lake County Park in Wisconsin

Listen to this story

RED WING, Minn. — While the jewel of Nugget Lake County Park is the 116-acre lake itself, a series of trails, a playground, a picnic shelter, a fishing pier, a campground, and five cabins provide plenty of activities for visitors of all ages.

Rental canoes and kayaks allow boaters to paddle down a brief section of Plum Creek to the point it opens up onto Nugget Lake, an ideal paddling start and finish.

“The kayaks are the most popular,” said Travis Campbell, assistant superintendent with the Pierce County Parks Department. “The lake is almost two miles long from the boat landing to the dam. Most people would take an hour and a half to go down there and back.”
