Manitowish Waters
Area & Links



The Manitowish Waters, Wisconsin, area is one of Wisconsin's best retreats from the hustle and bustle of city life. The 10 lake Manitowish Chain offers incredible fishing, water sports and beautiful beach areas.

For winter enthusiasts, scenic trail #8 runs right through town, next to the Pea Patch, and offers access to some of the best trails in the United States. Downhill ski trails are just a 1/2 hour drive away, and the many trails in the area will keep even the most dedicated cross country skier busy. Snowmobile rentals area available in the area, as are boat and water sport equipment rentals in the summer.

The Manitowish Waters area is also known for cranberry production, featuring about 600 acres of cranberry marshes in an area around Little Trout Lake. Free cranberry marsh tours are available in the summer. The fall harvest, when the marshes are flooding and cranberries are collected, is always a great attraction... even for those a little more adventurous than others!
