As longtime residents, we know first-hand that Chetek is a beautiful place to call home and even more so as the colors begin to change. So whether you desire to set out on one of our many bike trails, spend the day at a local park or fishing on the water, sit by the lake or visit a museum to brush up on your local history, we’re happy to share the many ways to embrace the fall season here in Northwestern Wisconsin!
1. Go Fishing
Chetek is known for its fishing and the lakes are home to such fish as bluegill, perch, bass and walleye, to name a few. Plan to spend the day on the water on Chetek’s chain of six lakes— there are twelve public boat landings, public beaches, fishing areas and waterfront restaurants for you to visit.
2. Go Camping
Chetek has numerous campgrounds and lakeside resorts where you can unwind and relax! From boating to canoeing to picturesque cabins, the accommodations in Chetek will satisfy any getaway you’re dreaming of this fall.
3. Go on a Bike Ride
Did you know Chetek has over 31 miles of marked bike trails? In addition, many of the roads that wind around the lakes have little traffic— making them the perfect bike routes! Bike routes are identified by yellow markings on the pavement and offer some of the best views of the local scenery.
4. Hit the Links
The temperatures have cooled down, but it’s still great weather for a round of golf! Visit one of the golf courses found in the Chetek area, including Sioux Creek, Sunset View or Pine Crest.
5. Explore Chetek History
Visitors and residents alike in the City of Lakes have great opportunities to brush up on local history! Step into the free Chetek Area Museum, Pioneer Village Museum in Cameron or the Chetek Resort Tourist Center by the Chetek River for more information about the area.
