   Manitowish Lake is a 506 acre lake with an average depth over 20 feet. The lake is part of the Manitowish Waters Chain of Lakes, which is one of the nicer chains in the area, and is nice and close to town. While there is more traffic than on standalone lakes, the Manitowish chain does not see the traffic that other chains do since it is further north. Manitowish Waters is a nice town with some great spots to eat. There are 3.5 acres of water per owner on the lake and 20 owners per mile of shoreline.
