Lost Creek Bog State Natural Area 4 miles | Water Trail Owned/managed by the WI-DNR Parking is very limited. Please do not park on private property. Located along Lake Superior in the Town of Bell, the Lost Creek Bog State Natural Area includes a rich wetland complex and Lake Superior estuary at the mouths of three small creeks (Lost Creeks 1, 2, and 3) where they empty into Siskiwit Bay. Shore fen, grading to open sedge bog, shrub swamp, and northern wet forest dominated by tamarack are the major habitats in the natural area. The site harbors state listed endangered species as well as several rare species, migratory waterfowl and other birds. In 2009, the Conservancy purchased additional properties at Lost Creek and conveyed them to the DNR for annexation on to the Natural Area.
Directions: At the junction of State Hwy 13 and County Hwy C in Cornucopia, go west on Blueberry Lane about 1.3 miles to its end. Please be aware that there is VERY LIMITED parking; the DNR has only 2 parking spaces and NO access to the Bog for outfitters and tours-for-hire. Please be aware that this is a residential area. Do not park elsewhere along Blueberry Lane and walk south into the bog, as this would constitute trespass on private property. Also, DNR land is not directly accessible along Blueberry Lane to the east, as may be depicted in plat and other maps. The remainder of the wetland is best accessed by canoe/kayak. Uplands are accessible adjacent to Highway 13 on the south or Roman Point Road on the west.
