Our beautiful chain of lakes provides a unique connection of 10 pristine water bodies linked by navigable channels. With over 4,200 acres, the chain is perfect for leisure boating, watersports, and fishing. There are public boat landings located on Clear Lake (via County Hwy. K to Clear Lake Road), Rest Lake (Hwy. W at Rest Lake Park), Wild Rice Lake (via Hwy. 51 to South Townline Road), and Island Lake (via Hwy. 51 to Island Lake Road). A fee-based launch is located at Greer's Pier Marina (Hwy. 51 at the Spider/Manitowish Lakes bridge).
For information about the new culvert and bridge on Alder Lake Road connecting Wild Rice Lake and the Trout River Channel, please contact the Manitowish Waters town office at 715-543-8400.
New Wisconsin Boating Regulation for 2010: It is illegal to operate a motorboat at greater than slow-no-wake speed within 100 feet of the shoreline of all lakes. Wisconsin boating regs can be reviewed at dnr.wi.gov or stop by the Chamber for a regulations booklet. The Town of Manitowish Waters does employ a water patrol officer on the 10-lake chain. The Town of Manitowish Waters' boating ordinance states that waterski hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
