The Lake - Sandy Beach and Great Fishing!!!: Come enjoy Sunset Lake and all it has to offer. We have 100 feet of beautiful sandy frontage that has a gently sloping bottom - perfect for young children! We provide a swimming raft and beach toys.
Or, use our fishing boats with paddles (motors available for rent in nearby Crystal Falls, or bring your own boat that you can dock at our pier (boat launch is 500 feet from the cabin). Sunset Lake had great fishing for panfish, bass, northern, and walleyes. Clean your fish in our 'fish house' which has running water and a freezer for your catch.
Playground and Boat Launch Nearby!: 500 feet away is also a great county park with a large playground, basketball courts, baseball field, and its own large swimming beach. A great place to let young kids unwind and explore.
Also, this is where the boat launch is, if you decide to bring your own boat. And, extra parking is available here, too.
Relaxing in the Evening!: In the evening, enjoy a campfire in the fire pit down by the lake. After experiencing a sunset down at the lake, you will see how the lake got its name - it is absolutely spectacular! After dark, the amazing stars and quiet of the U.P. will make it seem as if you are in a different world!
Jesse - Luckily, I grew up in a family that had a lake cottage. My wife and I wanted our children to have that same experience of 'going to the cabin'. We are happy to share our piece of heaven with others when we are not able to use it! From the number of renters that keep coming back year after year, I can tell that Sunset Lake has a special place in their heart!
My wife and I decided to purchase 'The Muskie' after visiting the area and falling in love with all that Sunset Lake has to offer. Our family loves the combination of a great sandy beach, awesome fishing, a playground nearby, and the friendly attitude of all the people in the U.P.
Our family enjoys the beach and swimming most of all, but the campfires down by the lake are a close second! And, the fishing keeps even our young children entertained. The peacefulness of the U.P. cannot be understated - uncrowded lakes, beautiful scenery (including amazing local waterfalls), and the friendliness of the people of Iron River. Once people have visited Sunset Lake they can't wait to get back!!!
