The history of Iron County is rooted in resources from its Iron Mines to Logging to its many Lakes and Rivers. The remoteness of the area and its fishing and hunting resorts on these lakes and rivers was a major attraction to many in the past and still is today. In 1990 the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Recourses purchased the Turtle Flambeau Flowage. The goal of this purchase is to preserve and protect the diversity this area has to offer. Protect the wild undeveloped miles of shore line; maintain a quality fishery and enhancing outdoor recreational opportunities for many years to come.
Our fun doesn't end with summer. Iron County is 70% public land, which our hunters enjoy. Fall colors can be spectacular, with fall fishing being some of the best. ATV Trails are accessible from resort without trailering.
