Cross Country Skiing
For those who zip along trails on their own power, Lakewoods has a special appeal. Adjacent to the Rock Lake Trail System in the Chequamegon National Forest, our golf course skatingtrails interconnect with more than 60km of classic tracks in the most pristine area. Located in a semi primitive, non-motorized region of the 850,000-acre forest, the well-marked trails of Rock Lake cross glacial hills and frozen wetlands amid thick forest. For those looking for a world class venue, the start of the American Birkebeiner ski race is located eight miles away in Cable. Ski this super-highway of the forest along the same track taken by more than 7,000 skiers every February. Whatever your inclination, the many trails of the Cable area and the Chequamegon Forest will spoil you.

Ice Fishing on Lake Namakagon
Lake Namakagon is known for fishing throughout the year. Be it Walleye, Northern, Panfish, Crappie or more, they can all be had through the Namakagon ice.
Early season and late season is best as snowmobile traffic quiets down and snow conditions are more condusive to fishing.
That being said, we have outstanding fishing contests and ice fishing events throughout the winter. Try your skills on the ice. We look forward to seeing you.
