Things to Do


Fishing is good for largemouth bass and bluegills on the Kimball Lakes chain, three small spring-fed lakes totaling about 270 acres. Northern, crappies and perch are also present. Lower Kimball (129 acres) and Upper Kimball (44 acres, no-wake) are shallow while Middle Kimball (98 acres) is one of the deepest lakes in northwestern Wisconsin, over 70 feet in one area. Resort guests also have the opportunity to trailer their own boats to many nearby lakes. Lake Nancy (walleye, northern, bass, panfish), Pokegama Lake (bass, panfish) and Gilmore Lake (walleye, northern, bass, panfish) are popular fishing lakes within 5 miles of resort as well as numerous other smaller lakes within a 10-mile radius.

Trail riding

ATV riders and snowmobilers in the winter will have convenient access without having to trailer once they are at the resort. St. Croix Trail Road and Old Log Cabin Road, the southern and western boundaries of our property, are both designated connectors leading directly to hundreds of miles of county and state trails. Ask for a Washburn County trail map in the resort office.


Canoeing or kayaking is a pleasant way to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and wildlife on the Kimball Lakes chain, especially early in the morning or in the evening around sunset. We have a canoe and 2 kayaks free for guest use on the lakes. We're located less than a mile from the Totagatic River, one of several waterways in the Wisconsin Wild and Scenic Rivers system, and less than 10 miles from landings on the Namekagon River, part of the St. Croix National Scenic River Way.


We have approximately 1.5 miles of easy walking trails running through our 139 acres of wooded land. A map of our trails is available in the office.
