Fishtrap Lake Resort is located in Boulder Junction, Vilas County, Wisconsin. Boulder Junction is the Musky Capital of the World. Vilas County is home to the Great Northwoods and some of the best snowmobile and hiking trails in the State of Wisconsin.

Fishtrap Lake Resort is home to two rustic cabins set in the midst of gorgeous natural beauty along the shores of Fishtrap Lake. Two cabins are available for your Northwoods getaway: The Whitetail Retreat which is located footsteps from the sandy shoreline of Fishtrap Lake and The Bear Den which is surrounded by a serene forest of trees with breathtaking views overlooking Fishtrap Lake. Both cabins are three season cabins, meaning no heat is supplied during winter.

Both of Fishtrap Lake Resort's cabins feature full kitchens, dining areas, living rooms, ceiling fans (no air conditioning), bathrooms with showers and two bedrooms. The cabins deliver magnificent views of the lake. Our cabins are private and secluded offering you a peaceful, relaxing, and fun vacation getaway for your family and friends in the Great Northwoods. A private pier is available for use as well as 180 feet of sand and plant frontage along the lake. During winter, please make sure temperatures are comfortable for your party.

No matter the season, there is plenty of recreation available at Fishtrap Lake Resort and the surrounding area. From dog sledding to snowshoeing in winter to kayaking and bicycling in summer, there is no shortage of fun in the Musky Capital of the World. Several fishing tournaments and community events are held throughout the year in the community. See our Special Events section for information. When choosing Fishtrap Lake Resort as your vacation paradise, you are sure to make memories that will last a lifetime. We hope you enjoy your stay in the Great Northwoods and we hope to see you for many more years to come.

Just what we expected.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first experience renting a cottage for a mini-vacation and I was so very pleased with my choice of property. The home was the perfect size, not too big, not too small. It was very private and serene. The lake was clean and very nice to swim in.

There was everything that we needed in the kitchen and the entire place was very neat, clean and so retro!

Thank you for the great long weekend away!

Relaxing Lakeside Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Just 2 of us and the dog stayed for a week. The cabin had everything it was advertised as having, you have to bring your own bed-linens and paper products (TP, paper towels). There were 2 rowboats and what looked to be a brand new set of oars. You can also rent a motor from a number of places in Boulder Junction. We opted to rent kayaks (the owner didn't have them this year but said he is looking at getting some so check with him) and enjoyed kayaking on Fishtrap Lake and the Manito-Wish river. The cabin is at the end of the road, very private and very quiet.

Great view

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just spent a week at Whitetail. The cabin was very comfortable and close to the water. The view from the dining area is absolutely beautiful. We saw a great blue heron and a bald eagle from the deck. The property is great for fisherman and kayakers. The owners were very helpful and went out of their way to be sure we had a good stay.

Nice cabin right on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from a week in the Whitetail cabin. It was a great experience with only one other cabin within site, plenty of room for the dog to run and swim, our own private pier, our own private boat ramp, our own fire pit, our own deck overlooking the lake, our own picture windows overlooking the lake, and a good lake for fishing and boating in general. The water in front of the cabin is fairly shallow and weedy so make sure to check with the owner if you have a big boat. Our 17.5 foot IO did fine. The owner is very nice and accommodating. I would recommend staying here.
