History & Renovation

To all those that helped to build the Mondeaux Dam Lodge and Recreation Area, and for those participating in the recent renovation efforts. Your vision, dedication and hard work will ensure that the Mondeaux Dam Lodge and Recreation Area will be able to serve the community and visitors to the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest for many years to come. Thank you!

 

History: 
The Mondeaux Dam Recreation Area is a public park found in the Chequamegon Nation Forest, in the town of Westboro, Wisconsin. In 1938 The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and Work Projects Administration (WPA) created the lake and facilities during the Great Depression. The park has four different camping sites including Eastwood, Spearhead Point, and West Point. 
The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a hiking trail that runs through the recreation area. The park also offers activities such as fishing, swimming, and boating.
