Camp 12 Lake Nature Preserve
This small peninsula protects beautiful natural shoreline on Camp 12 Lake.
The small preserve rests on a peninsula in between the two basins of Camp 12 Lake. A network of wetlands throughout the property are complimented by mounds of dry land where a few large white pines are growing.
In October of 2018, the Last Wilderness Conservation Association transfered ownership of their conservation lands, including this property, to NWLT. The property is located in the “Border Lakes” Region of Vilas County, an area which has been recognized as a globally-significant conservation resource due to the abundance of inland freshwater lakes of glacial origin, significant wetlands, and upland forests that support biological diversity and recreational opportunities.
