Welcome to Chippewa County CHIPPEWA COUNTY EXTENDS A WARM WELCOME TO YOU to visit our beautiful county located in northwestern Wisconsin. The county offers many exciting and affordable activities and places to explore whether you are an outdoor person or prefer to just sit back and relax. With our 449 lakes and streams, historical sites, cultural activities and abundant shopping, there is something for everyone. Chippewa County boasts many towns, villages, and cities all with their own unique special attractions. Stop in Bloomer for some to-die-for pies, artisan breads, or made from scratch pizza; stop in Chippewa Falls for a tour of a brewery, or to catch the latest movie; or take to Lake Holcombe for a chance at catching a Muskie or to ski its wonderful waters. Not the active type of person? Scattered throughout the county you’ll find many small shops featuring natural and organic soaps, lotions, alpaca products, maple syrup, squeaky cheese curds, honey, and everything in between. If you are looking for some great area history, Chippewa County has the last standing pulpwood stacker in the world. Standing 178 feet tall it can be seen for miles coming into the city of Cornell. While there, jump on the Old Abe State Trail for a picturesque ride on the newly repaved 19.5 mile trail. Stand on the spot that’s half-way between the North Pole and the equator with a visit to the Lion’s Park in Cadott; while there visit the Veteran’s tribute off Hwy 29.

INDOOR RECREATION

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, the 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 www.chippewacounty.com.

Lakes & Streams Chippewa County has 449 lakes totaling 20,027 acres and ranging from one 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 the opposite page. Many lakes provide excellent angling opportunities. The Chippewa River and its flowage offer some of the best and diverse angling opportunities in the 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, visit www.dnr.wi.gov.
