Park / Area History

Although three local men had started building a small golf course on the park site the year before, Memorial Lake was established as a regional park in 1962 by the Village of Shell Lake. Near the park, on a hill, is a monument formed by local boy scouts in 1929. It is constructed with stones gathered from the homesteads of local men who died in WWI. There are concrete steps and handrails in place if you and your family want to venture up to visit the Cross. Close to the park is Shell Lake Museum, housed in an original 1930 built CNR station which exhibits artifacts and memorabilia from 1900 - 1950. A caboose sits on the track outside the museum and a log house built in 1928 is included in the area.

Barrier Free Access

A washroom shower building is located in the Sports Ground/Group Camping area that is fully barrier free. Each of the four private units has a shower, toilet, sink and dressing area. There are barrier free modern washrooms located in the campground area with railed ramps. A paved walkway/path wanders through the trees from the gate to the campground area. Most campsites are level, but maybe too heavily gravelled for use. Call ahead for availability of suitable camping areas.


The campground gate is manned 24 hours a day during the summer.  Quiet time is from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. is strictly enforced. All campers staying at the site must be at least 19 years of age or accompanied by a parent or guardian. Pets are welcome, but they must be leashed and not left outside alone in your campsite.
