   Harris Lake is about as far north as you can be in Vilas County. The lake is located near the Wisconsin / Upper Michigan border. Becuase of its location, Harris Lake is a nice quiet lake that doesn't see much for boat traffic. The waters of Harris Lake are deep, clear and a rich blue color. Harris Lake is a great lake if you are looking for an old school Northern Wisconsin feel.
