Step outside your lakeshore cabin at Chippewa Flowage, also known as Big Chip or Lake Chippewa, and you will find yourself transported into a nature lover's paradise. Each morning at dawn the sun's ray dance over the surface of the lake as the forest comes to life around you. Majestic aspen, birch, pine and oak trees stand watch over the waters of Big Chip. Pay attention and you may witness bald eagles soaring above the white pine forests of the North Woods. Blue Herons and ospreys fly overhead and fish the shallow edge waters of Chippewa Flowage.

In total, it has been estimated that there are over one hundred and thirty (130) species of indigenous birds here at Chippewa Flowage, making it an ideal destination for the bird watcher in your travelling party. As you cruise the lake on a pontoon or boat, you may even be lucky enough to catch a rare glimpse of a baby bear with his mother as they forage for food along the lakeshore. There is a peace and serenity here at Chippewa Flowage that is a rarity in today's modern world.

At over 15,000 acres of surface area, Chippewa Flowage is a large man-made lake in northern Wisconsin. Located near Hayward, Wisconsin, Big Chip has long been renowned as one of the best fishing lakes of northern Wisconsin. The lake reaches a maximum depth of approximately ninety feet with excellent water clarity. The lake's surface is calm and on sunny days, the sun's rays sparkle as they meet its surface. Chippewa Flowage's maze of twists, turns, islands, underwater currents and sandbars makes it the perfect spot for catching Bluegill, Northern Pike, Muskellunge and, of course, walleye. Rock Bass, pumpkinseed, redhorse and bullheads are also present in the lake, but are much rarer. In fact, Chippewa Flowage has nearly two hundred (200) islands in the middle of the lake, ideal for fishing and picnicking in the summer months. Chippewa Flowage has consistently maintained its reputation as a lake producing record sized Muskellunge (Muskie). Summer afternoons can be hot, perfect for canoeing, kayaking, riding wave runners, water-skiing and swimming on the waters of Big Chip. As evening settles over Big Chip and its surrounding area, cool, moderate temperatures are the norm, making the summer evenings perfect for campfires with slow-roasted fish and smores.

Big Chip was first filled in 1924 for the purpose of increasing downstream water flow to generate power and prevent flooding. In the decades since has been a perennial favorite for travelers from Midwestern cities such as Minneapolis, Chicago, Indianapolis and Madison. It is Wisconsin's third largest lake. With a little over two hundred and thirty (230) miles of quiet, undeveloped shoreline, Chippewa Flowage is an ideal spot to escape from the modern concrete jungle into the peace and tranquility of nature.

Chippewa Flowage is peaceful, quiet and undisturbed; however, that doesn't mean that visitors don't have access to the modern comforts and amenities of a larger community.

If you happen to be visiting the Chippewa Flowage/Hayward region during the annual Lumberjack World Championships, be sure to take some time to witness the amazing feats of truly skilled men and women.

Fishing competitions are frequent in the Hayward area. To absorb some of the unique Native American culture that played such an integral part in the development of northern Wisconsin, be sure to check out the annual Honor the Earth Powwow, hosted by the Lac Courte Oreilles Tribe.

While the Chippewa Flowage has managed to retain its quiet, undeveloped nature, there are still gorgeous, luxury vacation homes available for rental or purchase.

In the spring and summer months, people can enjoy boating, hiking, biking, picnicking or simply relaxing in the sun by the lake shore. In the fall, enjoy a wine tasting against the back drop of magnificent autumn colors painting the foliage and surrounding landscape.

The land of the Chippewa Flowage was originally acquired by the United States from the Ojibwa, also known as the Chippewa, Nation in the 1800's. In the early 1920's, the Northern States Power Company constructed a large hydroelectric dam near Winter, Wisconsin. Upon the dam's completion in 1924, several lake basins were flooded, creating what is now the 15,000 acres of the Chippewa Flowage (view history). Sadly, the dam also flooded the Ojibwa Nation's ancient burial grounds and former homeland as well, eliminating some of the rich history of this proud Native American tribe. In 1988, the state of Wisconsin purchased approximately 6,900 acres of land from the Northern State Power Company, protecting the Chippewa Flowage region from the influx of commercial development. As a result, most of the land surrounding Lake Chippewa remains unmarred by resorts or other commercial developments, in contrast to other nearby lakes. Today, the Chippewa Islands project continues the mission of preserving the lake for future generations by purchasing privately held land around the Chippewa Flowage and protecting against commercial development. This project operates with the generous donations of contributors from around the world. With hundreds of miles of pristine lakefront shores and 140 islands, Lake Chippewa offers visitors the best of the northern Wisconsin wilderness.

Lake Chippewa or "Big Chip" is actually the third largest lake in the state of Wisconsin. Its maximum depth is approximately ninety feet, with an average depth of fifteen feet. As a result of its size and geography, Chippewa Flowage offers fabulous fishing and hunting opportunities. Muskies, walleyes, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, northerns, bluegills and crappies are plentiful in the waters of the Chippewa Flowage. In fact, many muskies caught in these water impressively measure over three feet in length. Rock bass, pumpkinseeds, bullheads, sturgeon and catfish are also present in the lake; however, they are a bit rarer and more difficult to catch. The underwater geography of the land with stump fields and reefs provides an excellent habitat for these various fish species. The large numbers of fish are also maintained as a result of the catch and release fishing policies of the Chippewa Flowage. Throughout the year, Lake Chippewa is host to a variety of fishing tournaments and competitions, such as the Chippewa Flowage Musky Hunt held annually in early fall. Hunters can enjoy bow hunting throughout the approved hunting seasons in this region. Game such as bear, beaver, waterfowl, mink, and deer are plentiful during hunting season.

Interestingly, approximately 3,000 members of the Lac Courte Oreilles band of the Ojibwe tribe continue to reside on property surrounding the Chippewa Flowage. The tribe owns and operates a cranberry bog, harvesting between 1,500 and 3,000 barrels of cranberries per year. The Ojibwe also operate a living culture center, known as the Abiinoojii-Aki-Our Children Land (Ojibwe Cultural Village). Both the cranberry marsh and living culture center are regularly open for tours. Additionally, the Lac Courte Oreilles also operate the LCO Casino (a casino bingo lodge and convention center) and the Grindstone Creek Casino. The casino is, of course, open throughout the year for visitors. When visiting Chippewa Flowage and the Lac Courte Oreilles tribe, tourists should be sure to pick up a "dream catcher" as a souvenir. These beautifully artistic pieces are handcrafted and said to protect people, particularly children, from bad dreams. Local legend traces the root of these artistic pieces to the Chippewa people. The St. Francis Solanus Mission is another great day trip destination from Chippewa Flowage. This arts and crafts store is located approximately nine miles from the casino and features a wide variety of Native American, hand-crafter pieces.

Although there are a variety of lodging options in the area, camping is an ideal choice at Chippewa Flowage. It is permitted on a first come, first serve basis at no charge. Visitors should note that there is a ten day limit on camping on all state owned sites throughout the Lake Chippewa area. Renting or purchasing a quiet cabin in the wilderness is also an outstanding option to get away from it all. If you prefer less rustic accommodations, the Lac Courte Oreilles tribe's casino is surrounded by a multitude of resorts, motels and other lodgings, complete with a wide variety of dining and shopping venues.
