The Board of The Town of Ojibwa Welcomes You to Ojibwa Park.
Clean, quiet and beautiful surroundings have traditionally made Ojibwa Park a popular camping and picnic spot. It is also popular as a rest stop for travelers. Wisconsin Highway 70 bisects Ojibwa Park between Ojibwa and Winter, Wisconsin.
The Park is comprised of 366 acres of forest bordered by the Chippewa River on the north and the Tuscobia State Trail on the South.
The Park consists of a camping area with 16 camper sites, 3 tent sites, several picnic areas and a small stream and pond. An RV dump station, drinking water and pit toilets are available. Newly completed (2010) one mile hiking / 1.5 mile cross country ski trail are wonderful additions to this park. Hike the one mile Turkey Feather Nature trail which provides tree and plant identification in a wonderful setting adjacent to the Chippewa River. A level trail with boardwalks, easy to walk, except for one set of stairs, so not completely handicap accessible) A 1.5 mile cross country ski trail has been developed beside this hiking trail on the north side of Hwy 70 in this park, there is a connecting trail from the camping circle to the hiking/ski trail.
There is a trail connecting the parking area with the Tuscobia State Trail, which is a popular ATV, snowmobile and mountain bike trail. This trail is 74 miles long, running from Tuscobia (near Rice Lake) to the City of Park Falls on an old abandoned C & NW Railroad corridor.
The trail is operated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources as an ATV facility from April 15 to November 15 and as a snowmobile trail during the winter months. The Price County Part of the Trail is Closed November 15th – December 15th. The west parking lot of the Ojibwa Park is kept plowed during the winter for snowmobilers’ access.
Fishing and canoeing opportunities abound on the Chippewa River. The entire Park is designated as a wildlife refuge and is not open to hunting at any time.
The park is open for camping from the first of May to the last day of the regular gun deer hunting season (near the end of November). The campsites in the Park are available on a first come/ first serve basis. Each of the three non-electric sites has a $10.00 per night fee. Each of the twelve electric sites has a $15.00 per night fee.
There is a large stone pavilion in the Park that can be reserved for a $35 per day fee. The pavilion is often used for large groups, picnics, receptions, and other celebrations. If not reserved, the pavilion is open for public use.
Ojibwa Park was established in 1932 by a gift to the people of the State of Wisconsin from Mr. & Mrs. Robert W. Baird, Ojibwa Sales Co., and Northern States Power Company.
Ojibwa Roadside State Park was developed and operated by the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources. In 1981, the Winter Area Lions Club assumed maintenance and operating responsibilities of the Park. In 1990, the ownership of the Park was transferred to the Township of Ojibwa.
