Eagle River Chain

"Great Times Come With The Territory"

You really can't get a whole lot farther north and still be in the state of Wisconsin... but when you get to this area, you may not want to leave; it is the Northwoods at its very best. Nicely nestled up against a chain of 28 lakes -- the largest chain of freshwater lakes in the world -- and very close to the headwaters of the Wisconsin River, the town of Eagle River offers a full four seasons of fun and enjoyment.

Ready to go fishing!

With thousands of acres of Federal and state forest lands and many hundreds of lakes that range in size from 50 to 4,000 acres, there is every opportunity for every kind of water activity imaginable.  (more info on the ten lakes that make up the chain)
