Oxbow Lake

   Oxbow Lake is a big, relatively deep lake with clear water. The lake is located a stone's throw away from the Wisconsin/Michigan border so it does not see a lot of activity. There are over 13 miles of shoreline on this uniquely shaped lake. Since there isn't much for low/marsh land aroudn the lake, it is developed all the way around. The lots this far north tend to be larger than the southern parts of the county so you don't have homes as close as you would if you were further south.
