Plum Lake

   The long and slender Plum Lake has clear deep water and a pretty good location. It is a bit isolated, which makes it more quiet, but at the same time, it isn't too far from any spot. It's about 25 minutes to Eagle River, Minocqua and Boulder Junction and just over 10 minutes to St. Germain. In a way, you are right in the heart of the Northwoods, only it's peaceful and quiet almost all the time. The Sayner area has a lot of state land and bike trails.
