What makes Clearwater Lake rank as my favorite lake in the Northwoods?

While Clearwater Lake is a Gold Bar Realty property, that is not reason enough to get the top spot. Clearwater is an awesome lake. It's private, it's quiet, the water is clear and deep, it's spring-fed, the fishing is fantastic, there is a classic Northwoods shoreline, and the list goes on. It checks a lot of the boxes, but looking only at the lake, it is hard to say it's the best lake in the Northwoods. It's hard to beat the clarity of Black Oak Lake or Stormy Lake or the size of Trout Lake, Plum Lake, and White Sand Lake or the recreation opportunities offered on the Minocqua, Manitowish Waters, or Fence Lake Chain of Lakes. However, the reason I have Clearwater at #1 is that it isn't just about the lake - it's about the overall experience. Yes, the lake has all the fantastic features mentioned above, but it's also located within 5 miles of two towns, there is natural gas, high speed internet and good cell coverage, and the homes are all very nice. It's even more than that. Clearwater is the center point of a private development. The lakefront lots are surrounded by 700 undeveloped acres for the private use and enjoyment of the lake residents. When you own at Clearwater you can enjoy hiking trails, a practice "golf course", frisbee golf, and in general, a more expansive experience than owning just a lot on a different lake.

Clearwater Lake is a Gold Bar property, so I do know it really well. Please contact me if you'd like to learn more.

Biking/Walking/Ski Trails:
Three Eagle Trail - A crushed limestone trail that connects Eagle River to Three Lakes. Great for walking, biking, cross country skiing and more. The trail meanders through various terrains and through the forests of Vilas County. A very nice trail and it is accessible from club property.
Paddling Routes:
No nearby paddling routes but Clearwater Lake is a great paddling lake. Quiet, no boats to deal with most days. Water so clear you can watch the fish. Undisturbed shorelines to explore. Pretty much everything you could ask for.
Snowmobile Trails:
The Three Lakes Trails system runs just the the west of the lake. This system is over 180 miles of groomed trails that takes you all over the northwoods. Like all the other trails up north, the trail system connects to other systems giving you access to anywhere you want to go explore on your sled.
ATV Trails:
ATV Routes are accessible just to the east of the lake. There are miles of trails on the lake property.
