Wowed at White Sand Lake
What a nice lake!
What a nice lake!
Ahead of a busy Fourth of July weekend, I was able to squeeze in a morning visit to White Sand Lake in Lac du Flambeau.
About the Lake:
11.17 miles of shoreline
5.59 acres/owner (lake density)
19.7 owners/miles of shoreline (lake density)
71' Max depth
There are a couple of White Sand Lakes in the area. This one is located in Lac du Flambeau township, northwest of Minocqua by about 15 minutes. There is a public boat launch, but it's kind of hidden. In fact, I don't even feel right about posting the whereabouts of the launch online because I think the owners at the lake like the fact that it's hidden. If you're really interested to know, just contact me and I'll tell you where it's located. The parking area is tight and there wasn't a pier to use, but launching the boat was just fine. It dropped off nice and the shoreline was sandy to pull back up to.

Being on White Sand Lake blew me away - it definitely needs to be higher on my Top 50. I always knew it was a great lake with it's size, depth, and clarity but the lake also has a lot of great character and feels quiet. With more than 11 miles of shoreline and lots of points and bays, it's an interesting shoreline to cruise. There are areas of undeveloped shoreline (privately owned with no intentions to develop), a couple resorts, and some incredible homes. This is definitely a lake that owners are proud to call their own.
White Sand has a Great Shoreline
Of course, I dropped the Secchi disk in the water to measure the clarity. It measured an impressive 17'. Clear water like this just makes you want to be in the water; swimming, skiing, sailing, boating, whatever else, it's just more fun when the water is clear.

While at the lake I had the pleasure of visiting with a couple of recent clients of mine who are relatively new to the lake. I was able to talk one of them (Steve S) into riding one of the jetboards, which is always fun and definitely funny. (check out the videos below for the double wipe out). It was a blast cruising around the lake on the board. It's big water, there is a lot of shoreline, and surprisingly, there isn't much boat traffic.
Lots of room to play on White Sand Lake
There are currently a couple of homes available on the lake. Both are in higher price points ($999,900 and $1,950,000) but this lake supports those prices as there are a lot of other quality homes.
