Brunet Island State Park
Located in the Northern part of Chippewa County, Brunet Island State Park is a beautiful location for outdoor recreation and camping.
With six trails ranging from .75 to 4.3 miles in length, Brunet Island State Park offers the following activities:
- Cross-country skiing
- Boating, canoeing, kayaking
With its rolling terrain and a wide variety of forest types, the park is home to many wildlife. The Fisher River bays and lagoons are a great place to see beaver, mink, herons, and deer. The park’s eight miles of hiking trails take you into different birding habitats. Hike the wetlands along the river to find Hermit Thrushes, Yellow-rumped Warblers, Common Yellowthroats, Nashville Warblers, White-throated Sparrows, and Northern Parula Warbler. The bays surrounding the islands on the river hold Great Blue Herons, Hooded Mergansers, Mallards, and Blue-winged teal.
The South Campground has 24 sites with electricity. It has a campsite accessible for people with disabilities and a shower building with flush toilets.
The North Campground has no electric service, but many of the 45 campsites are on the shoreline of the Chippewa River or its bays.
Vendors in Cornell sell groceries, propane, fuel, and other camping supplies.
