Lake Chetac is a 2400 acre lake located in Sawyer County. It has a maximum depth of 26 feet. The public boat landing is less than a mile away. Known for superior fishing - includes Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Walleye. You can fish right from the shore or ice fish in the winter.
Once the ice is off the lake, in the Spring, we will have 2 docks: 1 on each shore of the peninsula. The public boat landing is less than a mile away by road and you can see it from our shoreline, a few hundred yards away.
Pontoon & boat rental, just across the lake from our home at the Fred Thomas Resort or from Ri-shell’s Echo Bay Resort.
Watersports are #1 on everyone's list. Our lake has room for all water sports: swimming, water-skiing, sailing, pontooning, canoeing, paddleboats, kayaks or wave runners.
Close to recreational trails for ATV/UTV, snowmobiling, biking and hiking. The Tuscobia Trail is the main off road/ATV trail. Running for about 65 miles, it is well marked and easily accessible. In addition, The Ice Age National Scenic Trail, a thousand-mile footpath entirely within Wisconsin is nearby to hike some of the state's most beautiful natural areas. For biking, the Chequamegon National Forest offers endless hours of trails.
Golf is one of our best-kept secrets. The area offers an array of golf courses ranging from Championship to Executive. Tagalong, an 18-hole course patterned after St. Andrews in Scotland is challenging and fun. There are no less than 7 other courses within a short drive. If you enjoy golfing, bring the clubs along.
WINTER: "Bring on the Snow!" is a cheer echoed by all as the last leaf of autumn hits the ground. When the snow flies and our lake freezes over is when the true outdoor adventurer comes alive.
The thrill of snowmobiling can be found on hundreds of miles of local trails that are part of the largest network of snowmobiling trails in the Midwest. County and community clubs ensure a smooth ride by their dedication to grooming, signage and trail maintenance.
Step into your cross country skis and off you go out our backdoor or across the lake. Looking for picturesque cross country trails, then try Nordic Woods, Beaver Brook, Ice Age Trail, or the famed Birkebeiner Trail.
If you think fishing is over once the boats are off the lake, think again. Get your tipups, jig poles and ice shanty ready for some real fishing fun.
