Your Region-by-Region Guide to Up North Wisconsin


West of the north-south State Highway 13 and south of Lake Superior is an area dominated by national forest, scenic rivers running toward the Mississippi rather than the Big Lake, and a plethora of little lakes that almost rivals the Minocqua area. At the heart is Hayward, a former lumber industry mecca that now courts vacationers – just as likely to be from Minnesota as Wisconsin – instead of loggers...


This region, anchored by Minocqua, is perhaps the quintessential Up North experience. To the north and west of that “island city” is a vast and pristine wilderness with lakes more densely packed together than any other part of Wisconsin. And expansive state and tribal lands are well preserved so that the green space keeps up with the blue. ...


The most developed section of Wisconsin’s Northwoods still has plenty of pockets of wilderness and the bonus of a lot to do. Small towns are scattered throughout the forest, many along the vacationer-pumping arteries of US 141 and US 8. The vibe here is casual and familiar, with most amenities geared more toward cottage-owning residents of eastern Wisconsin than shorter-term visitors...
