Bass Lake Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest
Bass Lake Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is a 142 acre lake that you can reach by road access on ATV or UTV in Oconto County, Wisconsin. You can also can get there by vehicle too. For us, we enjoy riding the trails and stopping off to fish for a few hours.
My husband and I grab our fishing poles to hang out lakeside.
Bass Lake is in the Town of Doty and is an excellent place to cast a pole for panfish, such as bluegills and perch with an occasional walleye and bass caught.
You can also launch a small fishing boat but be sure to read here for rules.
There are plenty of lakes in Oconto County to fish on. Take a gander around and you will find plenty of choices. We pack the UTV with a cooler, sandwiches and drinks for a day of fun.
Bait, poles and a bucket for fish and for myself, camera gear. I just can’t sit still for long.
We get enjoyment of riding the trails to our fishing hole and then spending time fishing, photographing and relaxing.
Wildlife is plentiful and there is always something for me to point my lens at. Jumping frogs and dragonflies along the edge of the shoreline are fun ways to keep my attention.
Along with different birds going about their business in the trees. No complaints on spending an enjoyable day at the lake with my husband. As an added bonus, tomorrow night’s supper has been taken care of.

Enjoying the great outdoors and really not doing too much of anything is a wonderful way to spend a day.
Just a little note, the ramp to launch is ATV friendly but the beach access road is not. You will have to walk a very short distance around the lake to get to the beach.
