Lake Hultman and Standish Price Interpretive Trail - Ogema, Wisconsin

  • Jul 12, 2013 · 3:00 PM

This will be an interesting and educational weekend camp for all levels.  I have reserved a 20 acre pristine wilderness campsite on Lake Hultman.  Map here:http://holidayhillscamping.com/areaattractions.html

Reaching the campsite requires paddling across the lake from Holiday Hills campground.  Row boats/canoes/kayaks can either be brought by members of our group, or rented from the campground.  We will have to limit the number of boats/canoes as the campsite can only accommodate a limited number at the boat landing.  Priority for the landing space will be given to canoes and boats used for group gear and people transport over those for individual use.

Plan to arrive any time on Friday the 12th.  I would anticipate spending the majority of Saturday at the Standish Price Interpretive Trail.

The only wild food interpretive trail in the country!

The Standish Price Nature Trail is a unique educational resource designed for those interested in edible wild plants as well as more general plant identification, ecology, and field botany. With 118 stops featuring 110 species, this is one of the largest interpretive trails in the United States (in terms of the number of species covered and the amount of interpretive text accompanying the trail). It is also, as far as we know, the only such trail that focuses on edible wild plants (featuring 71 species).

Cost for the camp site is $50 per night up to 6 people, then $10 per night per person for additional campers.  I will initially ask for a $10 sign up fee, which will be adjusted accordingly as we get a firm number of participants.  I would anticipate some additional costs for firewood purchased at the campground.  As a primary focus of this trip is food, and we don't have to carry it on our backs, I'd look at this as an opportunity to show off some of our best campfire cuisine!

    Did anyone lose a kayak paddle? Dan informed me that he found one at Hultman Lake. He thought it was from our group.

    Thanks to Ross for organizing a fun trip to another part of the state that I had never explored. Beautiful area! Would love to go back to do the interpretive trail in spring to catch the flowers in bloom and hike more of the trails.

    It was a nice outing. A few more mosquitos than desired. But had a lot of fun.

    Ross could you call me if you get this? I'm camping with family an hour southwest of Ogema. I'd like to stay here another night and join you guys Saturday morning. I need to know if that'll work and what time you plan to hit the trail. I didn't bring my kayak so I'll need to use the rowboat too. [masked] Thanks!

    I'll be breaking out of work early tomorrow and will tentatively plan on being at the location around 4PM. Look forward to the trip.

    • Ross

      I expect to be there shortly after

  • Jenna

    Just so you aren't wondering where I am, I WILL be coming!...I can't get out of work early, so I'll be leaving Green Bay about 6ish. Puts me on the lake about 830-9. Hopefully you won't have to guide me in with your headlamps!

    Barry, please make sure you cancel your RSVP so that someone else can take your spot. There are a handful of people on the waiting list.

    I have been holding off on changing my rsvp because I am really interested in the topic of the trip but I have to drop out of this one. I got some sort of bug that I am just now starting to get over. I hope we do this one again!

    Regretfully, we won't be able to make this trip.

    July 8, 2013

  • Ross

    I have arranged several row boats for the weekend. I expect to be there late afternoon so will coordinate boats then. Please feel free to bring any boats, canoes, kayaks, etc. as you see fit. If you will not be able to make it, please change your RSVP so that someone on the waiting list can gain a spot.

    I have asked to rent four canoes, but have not heard back from the camp groud yet. For those of you that can bring a canoe, that would be great. We'll really need some to shuttle people and gear across the lake, and some recreational paddling as time permits.

    Please let me know if you can/plan to bring a caone. Thanks.

    • Gary

      Have you heard anything about renting canoes yet or how many are bringing them?

      July 5, 2013

    • Ross

      I haven't heard back from the camp ground and sent an e-mail again today. If anyone can bring canoes it would be most helpful.

    Hi Patricia:
    Unfortunately this particular trip is full and there is a waiting list. A kayak would indeed be a good choice. There is no portage, just a paddle across the lake to get to the remote camp site.

    I would love to go on this trip! This really close to were I grew up. Very nice area! If I somehow I make the cut and get to go, I also would have an extra Kayak if needed. Hope to join the group!
