Shawano Lake and County Park

At 6,178 acres, Shawano Lake is part of a 62 square mile watershed within the Wolf River Basin. It is heavily used year-round for recreation. It is significant to wildlife, especially during spring and fall migrations when waterfowl of all types can be found on the lake. There are good roads around the lake that lead to five boat launches. Fishing on the lake has always been good; wet a line for walleye, northern, large-mouth bass and panfish. The county park at the north end of the lake contains woodlands where you can find Redheaded Woodpeckers. American White Pelicans and Tundra Swans can be found on the lake in the spring.

Directions: Located 1 mile northeast of Shawano.
