Site seeing

Northern Wisconsin was carved by the glaciers many years ago. Hundreds of lakes dot the countryside. You will find thousands of acres of county, state, and national forests in the area. You can get off the beaten path to tour cranberry marshes, observe waterfalls, visit wildlife parks, see the shores of Lake Superior – the largest of the Great Lakes, and many other things. You will enjoy sightseeing around the area – be sure to bring your camera!

Local Wildlife

One of the things people enjoy at the resort is watching wildlife. It is common to see eagles soaring in the sky, osprey diving for fish, loons calling back and forth, or a deer walking through the resort grounds. Mink, fox, coyotes, raccoons, otters, porcupines, and other animals may occasionally be seen around the area.


Sayner and Rhinelander have museums where you can learn about the history of Northern Wisconsin’s early days when logging was the primary industry before tourism became popular.
