Gold Bar Lakes


   This page features the best lakes in Northern Wisconsin. Some of the lakes made the list because they have great stats. Some made it because they are part of chains that are popular. Some are just solid all around lakes. View this list as a good starting point if you are looking for a vacation home up north, but don't consider it to be all-inclusive. A lot of lakes that didn't make this list have great features and might be more perfect for you than the ones on the list. If you aren't finding anything that interests you, feel free to contact me to see if I can help find a lake that suits your needs. You can also use my Lake Finder or Lake Search and do your own exploring. Get started by clicking on a lake name to view that lake's current listings.
