Destination guide

A hotspot for wildlife lovers

The wildlife in Namakagon far outweighs the number of residents and crowds which descend upon the heavily forested area during summer. The small town lies around the edge of Lake Namakagon which teems with walleye, northern bass and pike, making it a big draw for anglers who find peaceful and secluded spots around its edge to fish. When you stay in a Namakagon vacation rental, you will almost certainly see herds of graceful deer and wild turkeys, and hear the beautiful call of the common loon. In short, Namakagon is a wildlife lover's dream destination.

Things to do

History and wildlife in Namakagon

Just down the road in Cable you'll find plenty of things to keep you busy during a stay in Namakagon. The Cable Natural History Museum has helped visitors connect with the flora and fauna of the Northwoods for more than 50 years. Here, you can see some fascinating collections of native animal specimens. Afterwards, have a walk through the weekend farmers' market where you can purchase everything from local produce to baked goods. Finish the day with a visit to the Cable-Hayward Area Arts Council to view the local and national artwork.


Hike, bike and horseback ride

Namakagon vacation rentals lie in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, an enormous swathe of public woodland that offers countless shared-use trails where you can hike, bike and horseback ride. While you're out in the wilderness, consider spending a night out under the stars. On the lake, you can launch your kayaks to while away a sunny afternoon on the water looking out for wildlife as you paddle. There are few places left where you can truly experience nature in the world. Namakagon is one of them.


Every season has something different

Namakagon vacation rentals are accessible throughout the year, with each season having its own merits and unique experiences. During spring, the weather can be a little fickle, but it's often warm and sunny, and best spend hiking through the forests. The temperature hots up during summer and it's the busiest season of the year. When the summer crowds subside, the trees come alive with the beautiful fall foliage, before the flurries of snow kick in for winter and residents dust off their cross-country skis.

Natural features

Millions of acres of oak and red maples

The millions of acres of forest that surround Namakagon vacation rentals are made up of native tree species including red maples, beech and mighty oaks. During different times of the year, the forests are abundant with wild raspberries, cranberries and mushrooms in fall, not to mention the blanket of colorful wildflower which blooms after the snow melts in spring. A walk through the forests will reveal everything from white-tailed deer to playful river otters. Elks and wolves were reintroduced and are now commonly sighted, as are the chipmunks and raccoons.
