On the shores of Little St. Germain Lake, water sports activities are plentiful! Little St. Germain Lake has 956 acres of good fishing waters with 32 miles of shoreline. There’s panfish, walleye, bass, pike, and musky to fish for, and to top off your catch, we have a screened-in fish cleaning house with running water. Rental motors and gas are available for your 14 ft. fishing boat, equipped with oars and 2 anchors!

June through August, every Sunday afternoon, get tips & tricks to catch fish while you are up staying with us. Experienced guide will be at the resort presenting to guests & fielding questions you might have about what is biting & on what. Stop by and gain some insight into some great fishing spots around the lake.

Little St. Germain Lake has 3 main bays and numerous coves for great boating and water skiing. Our sandy beach with a gradual slope is safe for children. There is a 50 ft. sunning pier and the water at the end is only about 3 ft. deep. Great for swimming!! There is also a swimming raft anchored further out for the better swimmers.

Relaxation … that’s more than acceptable as well! Maybe you just want to take one of our lawn chairs and loaf around for a while … no problem! Taking a nap in your cozy cottage is good too … but don’t forget about watching or taking pictures of the wild birds and other northern Wisconsin wildlife that frequent the grounds!

Children of all ages have plenty to keep them busy and happy, even on rainy days, which can be spent inside the Game Room! We put on great kids activities to help keep them busy and making their new "vacation" friends. We have S’more Roast, Fishing Derby, and can play movies in the game room. We cater to your entire family and offer you our exceptional service to ensure that your next northwoods style vacation meets with your expectations!!
