Musky Capital of the World !
As the official Musky Capital of the World®, Boulder Junction has long been noted for its excellent musky fishing, but the 50+ Class A musky lakes are just one aspect of all that we have to offer. With 194 lakes within nine miles of town, we pride ourselves on offering some of the best fishing opportunities in Wisconsin. It was no accident that Sports Afield magazine recently named Boulder Junction "one of the best outdoor sports towns in America." Whether you are a hard-core musky angler or an aspiring bass-master; a fly-fishing trout angler or a parent taking the kids out for their first fishing adventure, we're confident you'll be impressed by the Boulder Junction fishing experience.

Snowmobilers, cross-country skiers, snowshoers, shoppers, ice fishermen and people just looking to relax will love winter in Boulder Junction. Located amid 240,000 acres of state forests, Boulder Junction has no shortage of places to play, whatever your winter pastime might be. Ride along 130 miles of well-groomed snowmobile trails and explore a nearly endless variety of cross country skiing trails. The trails are connected to hundreds of miles of Vilas County trails, and thousands of miles of Northern Wisconsin trails. It's no accident that our area continually wins awards for best snowmobile destination. It is also worth noting that Boulder Junction lies far enough north that we are well inside the U.P. snow-belt. We often receive lake effect snow that communities to our south do not receive.
