My family and I have been coming up to Northern Wisconsin since the 1960's and love it up there. After reading the outstanding reviews on the Black Bear, and no longer wanting to stay at our usual spot in Boulder Junction, we decided to try a new place. Boy, are we glad we did!!! It was like night and day. The staff are all professional, polite, and friendly. They made us feel like family from the time we booked our trip, until the time we left. The cabin we had (Mallard) was clean, well equipped, and had an unbeatable view of the lake. The meals we had in the Bears Den Lounge were fantastic! Beef brisket, pulled pork sandwiches, Catfish fingers, and the large burgers are highly recommended. The bar stays open late too, so after a tough day of fishing (LOL) it was great to hang out there, relax, and share fishing stories. As far as the fishing goes, our trip was in early June and we did great fishing the reeds. A 31" Musky within 30 minutes of being on the lake. We also ended up with some great Bass, Northern Pike, Walleye, and Crappie during our stay.
Within minutes of the lodge you have access to anything you or your family would need to please everyone. Theaters, miniature golf, hardware, bait & tackle, fancy coffee, ice cream, antique shops, etc. etc. One of my personal favorites was the Monday flea market in St. Germain. Great variety of vendors there.
Needless to say, we are looking forward to next years vacation.
I can't say enough about the Black Bear Lodge and it's top-notch staff. You will NOT be disapointed!
