Three Lakes, Wisconsin
Three Lakes is a cozy community on the south end of 28 interconnected lakes – the largest chain of inland freshwater lakes in the world! We are also on the western edge of the spectacular 650,000-acre Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest offering scenic bicycling, hiking, camping, and hunting.
Downtown Three Lakes provides the old-fashioned charm of a store-front community. Its main street is lit by antique lampposts and lined with unique gift shops, restaurants, and other small businesses.
Three Lakes began growing as a tourist vacation destination in the late 1930s. The increasing availability of automobiles, combined with the roads that existed from the logging industry, made the lakes and forests of the Three Lakes area an attractive vacation destination. Although tourism remains an important industry to the area, the town also has manufacturing, a winery, an arts center, and numerous retail businesses that have diversified its economy.
