Without a doubt, the area’s premier water attraction is the Eagle River/Three Lakes Chain of Lakes. There are 28 attached lakes on the chain featuring 174 miles of shoreline and 11,528 acres of water. Offering an unlimited variety of water sports, there is an amazing availability of services, accommodations dining and entertainment opportunities along this, the largest fresh water chain in the world.
At the north end are the eight lakes in Eagle River. The largest lake is Catfish Lake at 1,012 square acres with a maximum depth of 30 feet. The smallest lake is Lynx Lake at 22 acres, with a maximum depth of 20 feet and is the most north lake on the chain.
The entire chain is famous for great fishing, especially the prized Muskellunge. There are tournaments held throughout the summer and in the winter for ice fishing. Other popular species that are in these waters are trout, walleye, smallmouth & largemouth bass, northern pike and all varieties of pan fish.
While the chain is in the heart of vacation land, none of the lakes are congested. Whether staying at a well- appointed resort with all the amenities or camping lakeside, you are sure to find a place to stay for perfect visit.
The housing opportunities are vast – from a cozy cottage to a sprawling, luxurious home - it’s all here. A second home or a place to relocate, there is everything here to give make for an unforgettable vacation or a dream lifestyle.
