Boulder Junction On-Water Homes and Cottages for Sale
Boulder Junction lies in central Vilas County with its founding roots in the lumber industry in the beginning of the 20th Century. Most importantly, the town is the official state and federal Musky Capital of the World. Thanks to the abundance of DNR classified Class A Musky lakes, 194 of them within nine miles of the town, the town won the hard-fought-for title.
Hayward, home of the largest musky ever caught, battled for the title. However, Boulder Junction prevailed, thanks in large part to the documentation they were able to provide helped prove they had legal claim to the title.
This town has limited private land and occupies 100.1 square miles, much of it in the Northern Highlands State Forest. The population is approximately 1,000 people and the main industry is tourism. The business community is supported, not only by a healthy retail and hospitality environment, but there are a number of available community services such as a library, an airport, historical museum, a parks system and much more.
