Don't Miss These City Spots Sponsored by WisTravel
The City of Chetek is a thriving community of around 2,000 year-round residents, plus at least that many more that reside around the shores of our lakes. The city itself has excellent educational and health care facilities, churches of many denominations, a strong industrial base plus retail trade area. It is an easy community to reach, being located right on U.S. Highway 53 Freeway, a four-lane controlled-access highway just 45 minutes north of 1-94 and Eau Claire. And when you get here you will find a population of fun-loving, dedicated people who work hard to keep Chetek such a great place to live. Enjoy your stay, we’ll enjoy having you. And if it can’t be found in Chetek, our location in northwestern Wisconsin puts us less than an hour away from more metropolitan surroundings.
Fishing abounds in the fertile waters of the Chetek Lakes. Crappies, bluegills, perch, bullheads, bass, northerns and walleyes are all sought after and caught in these waters. The chain is stocked every year with over 100,000 walleye fingerlings, courtesy of the DNR and the local Lakes Protection Association. By all estimates, over 400,000 fish are taken annually from the waters of this popular fishery. Chetek’s floating islands received national fame several years ago when one of the largest ones broke free and threatened docks, shorelines and bridges. Today they are mostly tied down and provide excellent fishing habitat.
