Recreation & Relaxation
try to offer something for everyone, a wide range of
activities and adventures. We are much like a family camp, guiding many
outings, providing lessons and offering educational information
(when wanted). Enjoy the horse shoe pit, the campfire pit,
basketball court, shuffleboard, croquet and hammocks. The
lodge has a bar, piano, foosball table, and games. Canoe or kayak on
the Turtle Chain of Lakes, the Turtle Flambeau Flowage and many
other nearby waterways. Hiking and biking in our beautiful northwoods
are just two ways to explore and experience the wildlife. Nature walks on our many wooded
trails offer berry picking and views of many wildflowers such as
iris, pitcher plants, orchids and more. There are many
waterfalls within an hour's trip away, offering spectacular day
hikes. Ask about our free guided tours to many adventures.
