Summer is the season of fun-filled days and cool, quiet nights. Almost every type of summer recreation is available in Flambeau.
You will never run out of things to do, for Lac du Flambeau is continually bustling with activities. There are trail hikes, bike trails, horseback riding, canoe trips, water skiing and boating. In early October through December, there is bow-and-arrow hunting for deer, also a rifle season in November.
Vacationers are invited to visit the museum and wildlife displays in downtown Lac du Flambeau and the Powell Marsh Wildlife Refuge north of town on Highway 47. Also on the list of things to see are trout ponds, deer farms, cranberry marshes and state and national forests and their fire towers. Other special events include the Fourth of July parade, Summer Rendezvous in August and the Colorama in September.
For many, the greatest opportunity of all is the chance to be alone…to sit and ponder, to relax and dream. Our fast-paced world offers too little of this.
Lac du Flambeau is ideal for what is probably the country’s fastest growing sports – snowmobiling and cross country skiing. Persons interested in this new recreation find that the wooded trails and snow-covered lakes are wonderful snowmobile terrain. Cross country skiing on the many snow-covered trails through the birch and pine forests brings peace of mind to the outdoor enthusiast that can only be found ‘North of the Tension Zone!’
