Oconto County offers more than 1,000 square miles of recreational opportunities that extend from Green Bay on the east to the Nicolet National Forest on the west. For the angler, the county has fifty-three lakes with public access and more than 300 miles of trout streams. Oconto, the county seat, is the site of Copper Culture Mound Park. Artifacts from the 5,000-year-old Indian civilization that created the mounds can be seen at the Beyer Historic Home Museum. Visitors to Oconto can take a different step back in time to the area’s logging heyday with a self-guided tour of the town’s Historic Main Street District. Lakewood, in northern Oconto County, preserves its lumbering past at the Holt & Balcom Logging Camp.
