Three Lakes

Three Lakes is a cozy community on the south end of 28 interconnected lakes – the largest chain of inland freshwater lakes in the world. Here, anglers find some of the finest musky, walleye and trout fishing in the Northwoods. Three Lakes is also on the western edge of the spectacular 650,000-acre Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest offering scenic bicycling, hiking, camping, and hunting.

You'll know you're here when...

The traffic lights are nowhere in sight and the beauty of your surroundings take your breath away. Three Lakes is a "Jewel" in the northwoods of Wisconsin - small town charm along with the world's largest inland chain of lakes. Get ready for a great time on the water exploring, fishing, swimming and soaking in the view. There are accommodations to suit every need and fun and friendly local restaurants and shops that will add to your list of places to go.
