QUIET LAKES – Northern Wisconsin
The Quiet Lakes: unique to the Midwest & protected sanctuary
Unique to the Midwest the Quiet Lakes are protected with a 10 mph speed limit prohibiting jet skis, water skiing & water tubing, ensuring undisturbed weed-beds for excellent fishing in a fisherman’s paradise. Lost Land Lake is a natural, spring-fed lake and headwaters of the Chippewa Flowage. It is about two miles by four miles long connected with a scenic navigable channel to Teal Lake with islands for a combined 2500 acres: just the right size for challenging fishing and worry-free family outdoor adventures.
Wildlife abounds because of the speed limit, restricted shore development, no low flying planes over eagles’ nests, and five generations of resort and home owners devoted to keeping these unique Quiet Lakes ecologically sparkling gems free of invasive species. Listen to the loon calls reverberating over the lakes; it’s a sign of our healthy environment.
