Destination or Quiet Lakes

The Chain of Lakes is extremely popular and the 10 lakes included on the Eagle River side of the Chain are considered "destination" lakes. There are 15 bars and restaurants on the Chain and boaters enjoy trying out all the options. All boats and water crafts are permitted on the Chain. However, there are lesser known, smaller lakes that may appeal to other people seeking lake property in Eagle River. In Wisconsin, lakes smaller than 50 acres are non-motorized lakes. These are perfect for fishing on quiet afternoons, swimming, or kayaking.
