Three Lakes

   Three Lakes was voted the best town in America a few years back. It was just an online competition, but it does speak to how nice of a little town this is. The town is steeped in history and has a really comfortable mom and pop feel to it. Most people in Three Lakes are in town to grab a bite to eat, to fill up with gas, or to check out some of the specialty stores. Three Lakes is home to the Three Lakes Chain of Lakes which connects to the Eagle River Chain of Lakes to form the largest freshwater chain of lakes in the world.

Grocery Stores: Location:
Three Lakes Town Market East Side
Closest Hospital:
Ascention Eagle River - Eagle River / 18 minutes north

Ascension St. Mary's - Rhinelander / 26 minutes south
Nearby Biking/Hiking Trails:
Three Eagle Trail - A crushed limestone trail that connects Eagle River to Three Lakes. Great for walking, biking, cross country skiing and more. The trail meanders through various terrains and through the forests of Vilas County. A very nice trail.

Nearby Cross Country Skiing Trails:
Three Eagle Trail - See above for details. Groomed during the winter.

Nearby Paddling Routes:
No nearby paddling routes but the Three Lakes/Eagle River Chain of Lakes offers days and days of paddling opportunities.
Nearby ATV Trails:
Currently no routes in town, but there are many ATV trails just a little to the north.
Nearby Snowmobile Trails:
Three Lakes Trails - Over 180 miles of groomed trails that takes you all over the northwoods. Like all the other trails up north, the trail system connects to other systems giving you access to anywhere you want to go explore on your sled.
Surrounding Towns:
Eagle River - Eagle River is kind of a sister city to Three Lakes. It is located 10 miles up Hwy 45 and offers some extra modern conveniences (bigger grocery stores, more places to eat, bigger hardware store, etc) that Three Lakes doesn't. With the Eagle River/Three Lakes chain being so big, there are many spots that are almost the same distance to both towns, even if they might be a little closer to Three Lakes on the map.

Clearwater Lake - Clearwater Lake is the home of Gold Bar Realty, Aroma's restaurant, and to some really nice people. It's basically a map dot on HWY 45 but is located just five miles from both Eagle River and Three Lakes so it is has location working in its favor.

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