Trout Lake is an extremely deep lake with clear water and not many homes. Places don't come up for sale all too often on this lake. The land around the lake is mostly state owned. Trout Lake is known to be a good fishing lake and has a really convenient location, it is about 15 minutes from Minocqua, Boulder Junction, and Manitowish Waters. There are over 16 miles of shoreline to explore by boat so it makes a great lake for paddle sports. The lake is the second largest standalone lake in the county (Lac Vieux Desert is the only bigger one) so that makes it great for boating too. The shoreline is mostly sand.
