Wisconsin’s Last Wilderness

presque-isle-wisconsin-map

At the top of Wisconsin, you’ll find a place where wilderness is alive and well. Water draws people to picturesque Presque Isle, whose name in French means “almost an island," and whose fishery remains strong due to its less trafficked waters. Enjoy abundant natural resources with contemplative endeavors such as hiking, birding and photography, or faster-paced activities like boating, biking and snowmobiling. Our diverse trails and pathways, water and waterfalls, and glacial hills and forests provide outdoor enthusiasts with plenty to do all year long. Our tourism-centric, quaint town is known for its quality waters, year-round wildlife, and snowbelt winters, alongside its laid-back and friendly way of life. A number of area resorts, lodges, and vacation cabins cater to visitors, from couples seeking a quiet wilderness experience to the hunter-angler seeking a trophy for their wall, from cross-country skiers to snowmobilers, from birdwatchers to the motorcyclists, from young families to the young-at-heart.
