Land O'Lakes

   Land O'Lakes lies on the Wisconsin/Michigan border. The town is quite small, but there are a lot of nice lakes around the area, including Black Oak Lake which is the clearest lake in the state and one of my favorites in all of Northern Wisconsin. Land O'Lakes is a town where you can't help but feel a sense of contentment. Everyone seems to be in a good mood and no one is ever in a rush.

Nearby ATV Trails:
Landover ATV Club Trails - The Landover ATV Club Trails are some of the most expansive in this region of the state. There are many miles of trails that give you access to all sorts of different riding conditions in eastern Vilas County.
Nearby Snowmobile Trails:

Eagle River - Eagle River is a 20 minute drive South on Hwy 45 from Land O'Lakes. Eagle River is the original tourist town in Northern WI and has all sorts of things to do and places to eat. There are also two big grocery stores that are a good spot to stop in on your way up to your place in Land O'Lakes.

Conover - Ten miles south of Land O'Lakes on HWY 45 lies Conover. Conover is another map dot town, but it has gas and bait and can come in handy if you live south of Land O'Lakes and need something small. It saves some drive time.

Times are approximate. I just took the time from the center of town.
