    A winter scene of Suukjak Sep Lake at Pine View Campground in the Pine View Recreation Area is shown Jan. 7, 2021, at Fort McCoy, Wis.

    The recreation area includes acres of publicly accessible land with hiking trails, Pine View Campground, Whitetail Ridge Ski Area, and Sportsman’s Range.

    Pine View Recreation Area offers four-season, year-round activities to include camping, hiking, fishing, and more. The lake was formerly known as Squaw Lake.

    The new name, Suukjak Sep, translates to “black wolf” in the Ho-Chunk language. The lake is a man-made impoundment on Suukjak Sep Creek. The creek itself was named Squaw Creek sometime in the mid-1800s.
