Arbor Vitae

The next several postings in this blog will highlight towns in the Northwoods and will provide links to properties that are for sale. We will feature highlights of each town to provide you with a flavor of that community.

One of the most popular features of Arbor Vitae is Big Arbor Vitae Lake and it is a real four-season favorite. Anglers enjoy year ‘round activity on this 1,090-acre location. The lake is on the north side of Highway 70 to the east of the township buildings.

The well-stocked lake includes Musky, Walleye, Largemouth Bass and Panfish and the DNR rates the lake as moderately clear. The deepest part of the lake is 41’. There are two boat landings on the lake. One of the ramps is located on the north side of the lake and accommodates 11-15 vehicles. The ramp is paved and is less than three feet deep. 

The second ramp is on the south side of the lake off Highway 70. Again, this is a paved, one-lane ramp that is less than three feet deep. There is parking space for six to ten vehicles and there are no restroom facilities.

Big Lake Arbor Vitae is also a popular snowmobile route and ice fishing destination. There are ice fishing tournaments hosted by local businesses and organizations throughout the season.

Arbor Vitae is also a great vacation destination and Arbor Vitae Camp offers excellent facilities on Big Arbor Vitae Lake, offering docking facilities for short term and seasonal use.

At Four Seasons Resort and Supper Club there is excellent lakefront dining available. They also offer a rental cabin to extend your stay on the lake’s south side. Slo’s Pub offers delicious casual dining on the lake’s southwest side. Also in Arbor Vitae are the ever-popular, Little Musky, the Wild Boar, the elegant Plantation Supper Club, Marty's Place North and so many more. Check into the Arbor Vitae Motel or one of the privately rented cabins that are available.

Arbor Vitae, Woodruff and Minocqua are all part of the Minocqua Area Chamber of Commerce and it offers a huge selection of businesses and services from which to choose to meet your vacation needs. It is also a wonderful resource for those planning a more permanent move to enjoy the best the Northwoods has to offer.
