Sawyer County boasts over 800 lakes, ranging from small, secluded bodies of water to larger, more expansive lakes. From the iconic Hayward Lakes chain, including Lac Courte Oreilles and Round Lake, to the serene Moose Lake and Spider Lake, there is a lake to suit every preference and interest.

These lakes provide endless opportunities for water-based activities. Boating, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing are popular pursuits, allowing visitors to explore the scenic shorelines and navigate the calm waters. Fishing enthusiasts will find an angler's paradise in Sawyer County, with an abundance of fish species including musky, walleye, bass, northern pike, and panfish.

Sawyer County also offers a wealth of recreational activities beyond the lakes. Explore the miles of scenic trails that wind through the dense forests, offering opportunities for hiking, biking, and wildlife observation. In the winter, the lakes transform into frozen playgrounds for ice fishing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing.
