>> Closest Town

  You can browse lakes by the town they are closest to by clicking on the links below. Minocqua, Eagle River and Rhinelander are the towns with the modern conveniences that many people expect a new home to have. Those would be things like good cell phone reception, high speed internet, natural gas, and grocery and hardware stores. Some of the other towns have that as well, but it's more touch and go the further you move away from the town center.

    Nearest Town


      Big town with hospital, grocery stores, many places to eat and drink, golf courses and more. Many clear lakes and a very popular chain provides many options for fun.

    Eagle River

      Probably the most well known vacation spot in Northern WI. Has a hospital, grocery stores, gas stations and other modern conveniences.

    Three Lakes

      Recently voted best town in America. I don't know what the criteria was for that, but it's a nice little town. It is a quaint town with gas station and places to eat located close to Eagle River.

    Boulder Junction

      Nice little town located North of Minocqua. Has a gas station, a couple places to eat and many nice clean lakes to enjoy. You'll find a lot of well maintained silent sport trails in the area.

    Manitowish Waters

      Small town just a twenty minute drive North of Minocqua. Home to very clear chain and quite a few places to eat and drink. Like Boulder Junction, there are a lot of really nice silent sport trails.


      The most "city-like" town in Northern Wisconsin. It's a sprawling town with everything you'd expect to find in a city up North. Minocqua is busier but Rhinelander has more of a city feel to me.

    St. Germain

      Small town located between Eagle River and Minocqua. It's central location makes for many options for dining, drinking, and finding stuff to do.

    Lac Du Flambeau

      Most well known for the Lake of the Torches Casino. It's a small town without a ton going on, but it is only a 20 minute drive from Minocqua.

    Land O'Lakes

      The smallest of our Northern Wisconsin towns sits just South of the Michigan border. It's a great place to find lots with more frontage for a reasonable price.
