With over 2,300 acres of spring-fed waters & hundreds of miles of connecting ATV trails from your front door, Cranberry Lake Resort & Campground is a paradise for all outdoor recreation activities!

Cranberry Lake
A 172-acre lake with 2.76 miles of shoreline.  Its sand bottom makes it a popular lake for swimming, paddling, and playing.  You will enjoy fishing for Northern Pike, Walleye, Largemouth Bass and Panfish.  Connected to the Minong Flowage by the Cranberry Narrows, it is passable by fishing boats and pontoons to the Minong Flowage.

The Minong Flowage
Has 1,564-acres, fed by the Totagatic River, and built by a dam built in 1937, has a sandy bottom with depths up to 21’. Although much of the Flowage is deep, it’s many shallow bays contain tree stumps and aquatic vegetation, making for some of best fishing in North Western WI.   Spend your day fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Crappie, and Yellow Perch.   The Flowage is also popular for boating, waterskiing, paddling, and it’s many sand islands to pull up to and share fish stories.

Whether you enjoy paddling, watersports, or boating, there is something for everyone at Cranberry Lake Resort.

The boating channel between Cranberry Lake and the Minong Flowage makes our area one of  NW Wisconsin’s most popular recreation & fishing lakes.

Jump in your kayak or canoe and paddle through Cranberry Narrows to enjoy nature and wildlife.  There are many bays to explore and you’re sure to see Eagles soaring overhead, turtles resting on logs, and deer at the water getting a drink.

If you feel the need for speed, Cranberry Lake is an excellent place to pull your tubers and water skiers! With clean, clear water that flows, they may fall in on purpose!


Do you love a gentle ride along the shoreline in your pontoon?  You can make this trip last an entire day!  Between Cranberry Lake and The Minong Flowage, you can spend an entire day cruising the shorelines.  If you feel the need for a swim, pull up to one of MANY sand islands and sand bars to cool down.  If you get hungry, there are FOUR bars and restaurants with boat parking to stop at and enjoy a great meal and an icy cold drink.
