Chetek is a prime Northwoods vacation destination. The city lies along the western shore of a chain of six lakes that offer more than 3,700 acres of fishing and boating fun. Enjoy horseback riding, miniature golf, and there’s even a drive-in movie theater just north of town – one of only six in Wisconsin.
