Only have one day to play here?

Swing by the local Birchwood Café for a great family breakfast, then head over to nearby Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary, where you’ll find amazing hiking trails to explore and many great nature-related programs for the whole family. Later, head over to the Chetac-Birch-Balsam-Red Cedar chain of lakes or to one of the many other area lakes to fish for Birchwood’s mascot, the Bluegill. The area lakes are full of northern pike, walleye, bass, and panfish. Boat rentals and fishing guides are available.

Small town charm...

Birchwood is known for its small town charm and friendly locals. Stop by any of the local businesses where you will often see the owner smiling at you as you walk in the door. Check out the “Walk on Main” map to navigate this Northwood’s town.

Fishing? You’ll catch the big one if you…

Head out to one of the many area lakes. Birchwood is known as the Bluegill Capital of Wisconsin and lives up to its name time and time again. Birchwood is surrounded by some of the best fishing lakes in Wisconsin. If you’re looking for a quiet place to fish, check out the small glacial lakes located North of Birchwood on the Birchwood Fire Lane. These lakes are accessible by canoe, kayak or by foot. Boat rentals, fishing guides, and bait shops are available in the area.
