Presque Isle, a place in Wisconsin’s famed Northwoods, is a vast swath of forest and

glacial lake country that deserves to be named Wisconsin’s Last Wilderness. It is the

location of a quaint town in the famous lake country of Vilas County, offering 77 square

miles of pine and hardwood forests, lakes and streams; a four season vacation land

that only just begins to tell the story. It is immediately adjacent to Michigan’s sprawling

Ottawa National Forest and Wisconsin’s 200,000 plus acres of Northern Highland State

Forest - offering hundreds of lakes and countless miles of scenic Northwoods back

roads.

Lake Superior, the Porcupine Mountains, canoe country of the Sylvania Wilderness

Tract are a short drive away. Presque Isle is in the center of Wisconsin’s famed Lake-

land area. Arts and crafts shops, family fun theme attractions, historical museums and

wildlife exhibits are minutes away. Golfing, tennis and horseback riding facilities add

to your choices.

The top attraction, however, is the natural splendor of Northwoods forests and clear

pristine lakes that offer a world of relaxation for all, from the contemplative sports -

hiking, photography, canoeing, kayaking, bicycling - to the world of casual or serious

trophy fishing, boating and waterskiing. Our glacial hills and clear waters will make

you an enthusiastic “discoverer” of Wisconsin’s Last Wilderness. Wildlife abounds -

eagles, loons, songbirds to whitetail deer grazing along the roadsides. If you’re lucky,

you might see a black bear lumbering along.

Whatever your vacation dreams, make them a reality by coming home to Presque Isle.

Nearly 300 years ago, shipwrecked French

priests on the shores of Lake Superior

made their way down a river to an area

they christened “Presque Isle,” or “Almost

an Island,” because of the vast stretches

of lakes and rivers that dwarfed the land.

The advent of the logging era brought

development to the area in the early

1900’s. In 1905, Presque Isle was known

as Fosterville, after one J.J. Foster who

built and operated a large saw mill.

William S. Winegar bought the mill in

1910 and the fledgling community was

renamed “Winegar”.

When the mill closed in 1933, the great

“Lumber Baron” era came to an end.

Today the mill ponds are visible from the

village and provide a refuge for birds and

wildlife.

In l955, the village name was changed

once again. Reflecting the wisdom and

farsightedness of early French missionary

priests, we finally became...

“Presque isle” - almost an Island.

A visit to the Heritage Society Museum in

downtown Presque Isle will take you back

to these simpler times.

WINTeRs are wonderfully long in Presque Isle due to its proximity to Lake Superior and receiving

“lake effect” snow. Because of this, its snow-covered winters begin early and end late.

With Presque Isle at the hub of a major snowmobile system, a visitor can spend a week and ride a

different trail each day. The breathtaking beauty will leave you in awe as you travel the area’s

nearly 500 miles of groomed trails winding through rambling forests and over hilly country. These

trails frequently lead you to woodland rivers where the flowing water remains open throughout

most of the winter. Small bridges breach the snow-covered banks, lending access to other beautiful

portions of the Presque Isle vacationland. The local Sno-Bunnies Snowmobile Club does an excel-

lent job of keeping the trails groomed, marked and maintained with their 2007 Tucker Terra and

new Tractor with a Sorcy Track System. Snowmobile enthusiasts agree, Wisconsin’s Last Wilder-

ness provides endless riding opportunities with something to please every snowmobiler.

This is everywhere to be appreciated and

enjoyed every season of the year, and with

Presque Isle’s proximity to the Upper Penin-

sula of Michigan, the options to explore

nature’s beauty are endless. Enormous Lake

Superior, famed Porcupine Mountains Wilder-

ness State Park and many outstanding water-

falls are just a short drive away. To reach the

Black River Parkway Falls, go north on M-64 or

Hwy O to Hwy 2, then west to Bessemer. In

Bessemer, turn north on County 513. Follow

signs to Copper Peak and Black River Harbor.

After passing Copper Peak look for signs to

falls. Falls will be on the right. Two beautiful

falls near Watersmeet are Bond Falls and

Agate Falls. For Bond Falls, take Hwy 45 to the

town of Paulding. Go 2.5 miles east on Bond

Falls Road. Agate Falls can be reached by tak-

ing Hwy 45 from Watersmeet to Old 45 one

mile. Stop at Bluff Creek and walk creek on

south and west side.

Numerous other waterfalls are waiting to be

enjoyed, including nearly 90 in Porcupine

Mountains State Park. Please see the Chamber

for more information.

"Denim anD Dessert” ReadeRs TheaTReis a non-profit organization made up of community members. This dynamic group re-

hearses a couple of times for each play. The players are able to read and act their lines

as opposed to memorizing them.

This allows for involvement by

many and offers a fun hobby

rather than a consuming one.

The players put a lot of work and

time into set designs and produc-

tion. Recent productions have in-

cluded “You Can’t Take it With

You,” and “Klondike Kalamity”.

Each production is followed by

delicious desserts and beverages.
