A former lumbering town, Hayward keeps its past alive with the Lumberjack World Championships each summer. However, fishing enthusiasts know it better as the home of the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame. The area is also known as the “Golf Capital of Wisconsin” with 18 courses within an hour’s drive.
The Hayward Lakes area has been a Northwoods vacation destination for generations. Year after year, people come here to enjoy the fishing and swimming, and to stroll the small town streets, stopping to buy a piece of freshly made fudge or a pair of moccasins. Each year, the Hayward/Cable area hosts two of the world’s top racing events – the American Birkebeiner cross country ski races in February and the Chequamegon Fat Tire bicycle races in September.
