Rusk County

Rusk County

Take a hike in the Blue Hills: you’ll enjoy the Perch Lake Nature Trail, the Ice-Age Trail and the hardwood trails. Take in this forested, glaciated area, with hidden waterfalls and abundant wildlife. Take a boat ride on one of the many clean, clear lakes. Get the fishing tackle out: bass, panfish, walleye, musky, northern, or bullheads are waiting to bite. Good trout fishing is to be had in well-stocked streams. Picnic at Memorial Park or O.J. Falge Park in Ladysmith, or enjoy the county and city parks in Bruce, Hawkins, Sheldon, Perch Lake, Audie Lake or Josie Creek. Whitewater canoeing is a great sport on the Flambeau River, while the Chippewa provides a quieter ride with beautiful scenery. Hundreds of miles of snowmobile and cross country ski trails criss-cross the county, and an excellent ski hill offers the highest vertical run in the north.
