Washburn WI

Area Activities

Washburn Wisconsin, nestled amidst the Chequamegon Bay and the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, is a treasure trove for outdoor enthusiasts and history buffs alike. Kayak through the emerald waters of the bay, casting a line for elusive salmon and trout, or hike through the lush forests of the lakeshore, spotting curious deer and majestic bald eagles. Take a step back in time and discover the town’s rich logging and maritime history. In winter, snowmobilers rejoice on miles of groomed trails, while ice fishermen brave the frozen bay for a chance at a trophy perch. No matter the season, Washburn’s natural beauty and vibrant spirit will leave you enchanted.
