In the midst of the Chequamegon National Forest is the four season recreational region known as the Cable Area of Northwest Wisconsin. This pristine environment with an abundance of wildlife, clean air and an unhurried pace of life will capture you. View the clear brilliant blue skies of day, the spectacular sunsets, and the millions of stars illuminating the nights. The area has a close bond to the forest, utilizing the great woods as its economic lifeblood. The local economy remains strongly influenced by logging and tourism. That’s why you find a healthy respect for the forest and the wildlife and fauna within it. As gateways to the forest, the Cable Area communities know that their futures depend on a well-balanced, sustainable approach to our great forest resource.
