For the past 3 years the loons have raised at least one youngster. Bring the binoculars to get the closest view! Other frequent visitors are ducks, herons, eagles, otters, muskrats, and hummingbirds.
The above picture was taken at the Lair in August.
Swimming is excellent even on windy days. The beach is sandy. The water is deep and clear, true to its name. Fish including muskies can be seen swimming under the dock. Two muskies longer than
40 inches were caught by Loon's Lair visitors last year. Bass and panfish are abundant.
Road biking and running are good right out the door. The CAMBA mountain bike trails are nearby as is the
Mukwonago hiking trail in the Chequamegon National Forest and the Sawyer
County (Birkebeiner) hiking Trail.
Other nearby lakes include the Tiger Cat flowage, Upper and Lower Twin, Round, Reed and Callahan. Public access to these lakes is within 3 miles. A map showing these launches is available at the cottage.
Take a day and canoe through the interconnecting lakes of the Tiger Cat
flowage. It is a fascinating combination of lake and marshy streams. Don't forget the binoculars
Maps of many of the canoeing and biking opportunities are available at the cottage.
Should it rain (and I must admit it sometimes does), wait it out on the 3 season porch. There is an assortment of games and videos. Videos can also be rented in Hayward.
