The Top 3 Reasons Why I Love Vilas County

Location: Vilas County

Vilas County is a true “up north” destination. I’ve been traveling up here for the last ten years and I wanted to share some things that make Vilas County one of our favorite gateways, along with some cool facts about the area.

And there’s so much more that always keeps us coming back. If you’ve visited Vilas County, then I’m sure you love it just as much as I do. If you haven’t, here are my top reasons why you should start planning your visit today:

1. Fishing

Vilas County is home to one of the largest concentrations of freshwater lakes on earth. The county boasts some of the best smallmouth bass, walleye and musky fishing in North America and its lakes are also home to crappie, bluegill, northern pike and more. The area is one of my favorite fishing destinations.

2. Lodging







I can’t even begin to tell you guys how amazing our cabin, “Memories Found” on Found Lake in St,Germain. It truly has it all for anyone looking for the charm of a Northwoods retreat.

A place like this is our dream home; a cabin nestled in the woods, on musky ridden waters, a dock to sip coffee or Bloody Mary’s on, an indoor fire place, an outdoor fire pit, and so much more. It was perfect.

3. Scenery

Everywhere you turn looks like something out of a movie. The forests, lakes and wildlife alone are reason enough to travel to the area. Spending time in nature is so relaxing, and these photo-worthy shots give you something to take home to remember the spectacular views.
