The Manitowish Waters area is the ideal spot to "get away from it all." Located in Northwestern Vilas County in Wisconsin's Northwoods, Manitowish Waters is known for its quiet, less stressful surroundings perfect for a family vacation, reunion, romantic getaway, hunting or fishing excursion, or leisure day trip. With a year 'round population of roughly 700, Manitowish Waters sees quite an increase throughout the seasons from a combination of seasonal residents, second home owners and vacationers.

Our beautiful chain of lakes provides a unique connection of 10 pristine water bodies linked by navigable channels. With over 4,200 acres, the chain is perfect for leisure boating, watersports, and fishing.
