We’ve highlighted five hidden gems near Lakewoods Resort so you can unwind like a local. 

  1. Potato Falls

About an hour’s drive from Lakewoods Resort in Gurney, WI, you will find Potato Falls. This impressive waterfall is tucked away high up in Northern Wisconsin, dropping an impressive 90 feet. Once you make it to the parking lot, head down the trail leading you to a cool observation deck with a nice view of the distant falls. You can even wade into the Potato River a little bit if you want to cool down! Picnic areas are available nearby. 

  1. Fourth of July Celebration

Hosted by the Cable Area Chamber of Commerce, our Independence Day celebration has one of the best parades in the Northland. All-day festivities include a pancake breakfast, the C.A.R.E 5K/10K Walk Run, our epic parade, and a picnic with all the festival foods of your dreams! And of course—FIREWORKS! Lakewoods Resort on Lake Namakagon is conveniently one of the three firework show locations! 

  1. Forest Lodge Library 

If you are travelling with kids, you probably need some tasks to keep them busy as you drive around to all the amazing hidden gems of the Cable area. Look no further than the Forest Lodge Library, a rustic log cabin book haven. They have an excellent children’s book section, which your kiddos will love! Ask the kind staff about their children’s summer programs.
