Clubhouse Lake Campground is located on its peaceful namesake in the beautiful Chippewa National Forest. Visitors enjoy the area for its fishing and canoeing opportunities in a scenic natural setting.


Clubhouse Lake has excellent water quality and is about 90 feet deep, providing great fishing opportunities for northern pike, bass and panfish. Swimming, canoeing and kayaking are very popular activities on the lake. The Rice River Canoe Route starts its journey to the Big Fork River from waters that flow into Clubhouse Lake.

A sandy swimming beach, an accessible fishing pier and a day use area are located within the campground at the water's edge. A kid's fishing day is held at the campground in June, sponsored by the Big Fork Lion's Club and the Forest Service.


The campground offers 28 reservable and 19 first-come, first-served, single-family campsites. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring. Vault toilets and hand-pumped drinking water are provided.

The campground is patrolled regularly by Forest Service personnel and Itasca County law enforcement officers.

Natural Features

The campground lies off Highway 38, which is the nation's first National Scenic Byway, known as "The Edge of the Wilderness." A beautiful stand of 200-year-old red and white pine trees cover the campground on the western shore of Clubhouse Lake.
