Papoose lake is a big deep lake with extremely clear water and a quiet Northwoods setting. The lake has a nice shape and a pretty shoreline. While not extremely close to town, Papoose is just a twelve minute drive into Manitowish Waters where you can grab gas and groceries. Many nice places to eat are located within 20 minutes of the lake. Papoose Lake is known to be a good walleye and musky lake for those looking for a lake with good fishing.
