CORNELL, WIS. is a historic paper-mill town which hosts the only known pulpwood stacker in the world. It was used in Cornell from 1912 until 1972. It now stands as a monument to the logging industry that laid the foundation for the entire Chippewa Valley.

Bloomer, located off of State Highway 53, offers the best in small-town Americana, offering food and services of every description to visitors and area residents. Bloomer serves as the hub of a large agricultural area and is the gateway city serving residents and visitors to the Blue Diamond recreation area to the north. Bloomer features specialty merchants known for breads, pies and meats. Fine medical facilities serve visitors and residents, and classic churches define the skyline. Bloomer offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities, from its historic annual speed rope jump competition to several parks and walking trails, an 18-hole golf course and a beautiful lake in the center of town. Nearby lakes offer boating, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking and hunting opportunities, as well as resorts and campgrounds. Visitors can visit the historical museum in the summer and attend the annual community fair in July.

The Village of Boyd–nicknamed “The Friendly Town”–is nestled among the farms and woodlots in the gently rolling hills along State Highway 29, east of Chippewa Falls. The many local businesses meet the needs of area residents and visitors. The community also features Lotz Park, with a lighted ball diamond, volleyball and tennis courts, pavilions and play areas. Historic St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, built in 1928, has spectacular German stained glass windows. Its prominent twin steeples have become a landmark. Boyd’s 680 residents invite everyone to the community’s Ringelspiel Days Festival on Memorial Day weekend with sports tournaments, a carnival, parade and live music. Late August, the village hosts an event with an outdoor dance and free sweet corn. In early December, Boyd hosts a pancake breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus, horse-drawn wagon rides and skating.

Cadott, “halfway between the Equator and the North Pole,” is in the heart of Wisconsin’s vacation crossroads. Located at the junctions of State Highways 27 and 29, at the west end of the Partner 29 corridor along the Old Yellowstone Trail, Cadott was named after Jean Baptiste Cadotte, the son of a fur trader who established a fur trading post here in the early 1800s. The first permanent settler was Robert Marriner, who built a log cabin and sawmill in 1865, beginning the lumbering and mill industries which served as the foundation of Cadott’s first growth. Today you will find a wide variety of places to visit, including Riverview Park, which has interpretive signs providing an insight into the unique rock formations along the Yellow River; the Cadott Area Historical Museum and Baker School; the ZCBJ Lodge Hall and Bohemian Cemetery, which are listed on the State and National Registries of Historic Places; the Wisconsin Veterans Tribute; good restaurants; a cheese house; a motel; and businesses along Main Street.

Nestled on the banks of the scenic Chippewa River off of Highway 178, the City of Cornell is a center for area history and year-round recreation. The city has the only remaining pulpwood stacker, located in the Mill Yard Park, site of the Cornell Visitors Center and Native American Museum (open May through October). Cornell is also a trailhead for the 20mile Old Abe State Trail for biking, walking, snowmobiling and horseback riding. Brunet Island State Park offers camping and other outdoor recreation.

Perched on the banks of the scenic Chippewa River, Jim Falls offers a smalltown feel full of local history and yearround outdoor recreational activities. The Old Abe State Trail welcoming bikers, snowmobilers, horseback riders and hikers can be accessed in Jim Falls. Xcel Energy’s Jim Falls Hydropower Plant is the largest hydropower producing facility in the Midwest. Boat access to the Old Abe Flowage and the upper end of Lake Wissota provides excellent angling opportunities for walleye, muskie, smallmouth bass and catfish. The Old Abe War Eagle memorial statue commemorates Wisconsin’s feathered Civil War hero. The Chippewa River along Highway 178 just north of Jim Falls offers a view of the original river channel, a hiking trail with spectacular displays of spring wildflowers, an area of study for geology students, scheduled flow releases for kayakers and an opportunity to view Wisconsin’s living fossil, the lake sturgeon.

The village of Lake Hallie, County Highway OO and State Highway 53, began in Wisconsin’s logging era. In the 1870s, the community of Badger Mills formed adjacent to the Chippewa River and Lake Hallie. Lake Hallie, an oxbow of the Chippewa River, was named after the daughter of the lumber mill president. The lake was used as a holding pond for logs. When the logging boom ended, the lake became a recreational center. Today Lake Hallie provides excellent fishing throughout the year. Anglers and canoeists can enjoy a leisurely float down the Chippewa River from Chippewa Falls to the boat ramp across from Lake Hallie. An 18hole golf course lies on the shore of Lake Hallie and the banks of the Chippewa River. Hallie Youth Days provides opportunities for young softball and baseball players to display their talents. Future plans identify a connection to be developed between the Old Abe and Chippewa River State Trails in 2019.

The Lake Wissota area offers natural beauty and attractions. Lake Wissota State Park, nine miles northeast of Chippewa Falls, includes more than 1,000 acres of forests and open prairie bordering a 6,300-acre lake. Boating, canoeing, swimming, waterskiing and the miles of trails are popular during the warmer months, and enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling and crosscountry skiing in the winter. The Old Abe Bike trail, accessed at the junction of County Highways O and S, follows the Chippewa River between the park and Brunet Island State Park near Cornell, passing through agricultural and undeveloped lands. The town of Lafayette borders Lake Wissota. The township maintains a boat landing on the lake and is the home of Skydive Wissota, an over45-year-old club that has trained instructors to help people experience the adventure of skydiving.

A genuine sense of family values and a warm Wisconsin welcome awaits you. Duncan Creek runs through Tilden and offers fishing, kayaking and a place to cool off in the summer months. Throughout the seasons avid outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy ATV, snowmobiling and biking while taking in the sights of old tradition and new developments.

Trail

The Yellowstone Trail was the first transcontinental automobile highway in the United States. In 1912 it began as an effort to provide good roads from South Dakota to the great tourist attraction, Yellowstone Park. It soon expanded to become a road running through all of the 13 northern-tier states, “from Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, to Puget Sound on the Pacific Ocean.” The trail was marked by bright yellow markers with a black arrow. The Yellowstone Trail attracted so many visitors that when the highway department numbered state roads in 1918, the Yellowstone Trail and its yellow road markers were allowed to remain. Today, thanks to the efforts of Chippewa County and the Chippewa County Historical Society Historic Marker Committee, the same Yellowstone Trail logo signs point the way through Chippewa County. Make plans to travel the trail and request your Yellowstone Trail Passport to get stamped along the way. For more information about the Yellowstone Trail visit chippewacounty.com.

STREAMS &

LAKES

Chippewa County has 449 lakes totaling 20,027 acres and ranging from 1 to 6,300 acres. Lake Wissota, the largest lake, is an impoundment of the Chippewa River east of Chippewa Falls. Although many of the smaller lakes do not support much of a fishery, they offer solitude and serenity for those wanting to get away. Thirty-eight lakes have developed public access and most are listed in the table on this and the opposite page. Many lakes provide excellent angling opportunities. The Chippewa River and its flowage offer some of the best and most diverse angling opportunities in the county.

MAJOR TROUT STREAMS OF CHIPPEWA COUNTY

Chippewa County also provides 81 miles of trout-fishing opportunities in 24 classified trout streams. Seventy-seven miles of these streams are Class 1 trout water. For a complete list and maps of lakes and streams in Chippewa County,
