For hiking the North Country National Scenic Trail crosses through the Drummond area and offers hikers the chance to see many kinds of wildlife and beautiful woodlands.

Check out the CAMBA biking trails in the Drummond area - CAMBA is the Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association.
Please check out the Forest Service web site for information regarding the Two Lakes Campground. A storm in September of 2005 has caused a portion of the campground to be closed in 2006 but the US Forestry has plans to have all sites open by Memorial Day 2007. Two Lakes Campground is almost back to normal and lots of fun for the entire family. Most camp sites are open (all the good lakes are open) and many families are enjoying the wonderful scenery and peaceful national forest surroundings. Also, please pay attention to the warning on that web site regarding bringing firewood into the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.
