Lac Du Flambeau

Waswagoning, “a place where they fish by torchlight,” is the name that the Ojibwe gave this place. The French Fur Traders saw the Indians’ fishing technique and named the area Lac du Flambeau, “Lake of the Torch.” Today, the town of that name sits at the center of the Lac du Flambeau Indian Reservation. The area’s lush forests, 250 lakes, abundant wildlife, legendary fishing and miles of snowmobile trails make for all-season fun. The region is imbued with Ojibwe heritage and culture that is showcased in several local attractions.
