Brunet Island State Park, on the Chippewa and Fisher rivers, contains more than 1,200 acres of scenic beauty, wildlife, and recreational opportunities. Each summer, thousands of visitors come to camp, fish, boat, canoe, hike, swim, and picnic. During the winter they can ski, snowshoe, and ice fish.
Quiet lagoons and channels are excellent for canoeing and wildlife watching. The landscape here in Chippewa County is a product of the most recent Ice Age (the Pliestocene Epoch). The rolling terrain carries a wide variety of forest types and is home to a multitude of wildlife.
