Vacation help in the Hayward/Spooner/Rice Lake area

4 posts in this topic

Next summer about this time (mid July) we are planning on taking a family vacation with one or two other couples.

There will be some kids on the trip- all under 8 years old.

The women won't fish alot- so they will be looking for other things to do.

So, I guess I am looking for a place that has the all/some of the following:

1. I would prefer a musky lake- or one real near by. Size of muskies is no real concern- I'm the only musky guy in the group (at this time-however, one of the other guys catches a few and that will change!)

2. Would prefer a clear water type lake- but not a necessity

3. Good fishing for panfish/bass/walleyes, etc- for the kids and women.

4. Something more to do on the site- playground, game room, etc.

5. Good sized town nearby for off times/rainy periods.

6. Nice clean place- would like it to have a large cabin so all families could fit into one- 6 adults and 4 kids. We are not looking for the most extravagant place in the world, but a decent rate would be great too!

7. Good people running the resort.

Thanks for the help guys!

I'd recommend getting the musky fishing wisconsin guidebook put out by (i think) Sportsmans Connection

find one near Hayward that looks decent. You could always go to the Chippewa Flowage, but thats like an hour from Hayward I think

I should have said that I've fished a bunch of the lakes in the Hayward area, so I know about most of the musky lakes..I have never fished that area for other species- so that is where I am hoping the help will come in, along with the other amenities.

Do Lost Land and Teal have resorts on them? That is a nice area- minus the landing on LLL- at least when I was there a year or so ago.

Thanks!

Lost Land Lake Lodge is the only one I know of there. Can't tell you much about the accommodations but if you wanted to water ski or go tubing, that would be out since there's a 10 mph speed limit of both lakes. It's also a long ways from town, close to an hours drive.

There's Lakeview Resort on Grindstone and Lac Courte Orielles has Pine Shores and Trails End Resort. Those two lakes are 20 minutes from Hayward and 10 minutes from the casino. There's also a couple of resorts on Round Lake which is a great lake for swimming, skiing, and pretty decent fishing plus you'd only be 10 minutes from the Chippewa Flowage.
