Wisconsin’s Last Wilderness

presque-isle-wisconsin-map-2018

At the top of Wisconsin, you will 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 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 year-round. Our quaint town is known for its quality waters, year-round wildlife, and snowbelt winters, alongside a 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 motorcyclists, from young families to the young-at-heart.
