Wisconsin has ample options when it comes to boating. With more than 15,000 lakes and 33,000 miles of rivers and streams, get out your speedboats, paddleboats, canoes or kayaks! There’s no shortage of water sports and great spots, here are some of our favorites:
When people talk about a classic Northwood’s vacation, they’re talking about the Eagle River and St. Germain area. Located on a chain of twenty-eight lakes – the largest freshwater chain in the world – Eagle River is famous for its clear, cool lakes filled with game fish. It’s also a great spot for anyone looking to water ski or tube.
Waupaca Chain O’ Lakes is another popular boating destination. As the name implies the twenty-three connecting lakes range in size and offerings. Among the best lakes for tubing, skiing or just plain boating include Rainbow, Round and Long Lake. Many of the lakes don’t allow a wake, so be sure to check out the lake information before you make your plans.
If you’re more of the spectator type, be sure to catch a jaw-dropping performance by the Muskego Water Bugs, a Wisconsin Division II Champion ski show team. Or check out the Badgerland Water Ski Show team in Waukesha. They were the 6th best team in the nation in 2010!
