Outdoor Fun at Loon's Bay Cabin
Whether it be fishing, wildlife watching, canoeing, swimming, biking, hiking or just relaxing to the sights and sounds of the Northwoods, you can do it here.
The cabin is perfect for those who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and are looking for a more authentic "Up North" experience.
Wildcat and Big Kitten Lake are listed as Class "A" Musky waters. There are excellent oppurtunities for action with Muskies here. The Wildcat lake chain is 360 acres and a relatively shallow drainage lake. Water clarity is very good. There are abundant weed beds and good shoreline structure. The lake has 5 islands which adds additional structure. Walleye are found here in good numbers as well. Largemouth Bass and Bluegills are common. Northern pike and Smallmouth bass, and Crappie are also present.
Wildlife and Bird Watching
The Wildcat chain of lakes is a haven for wildlife. Much of the lake is surrounded by the Northern Highland State Forest and much of the shoreline is undeveloped. There are five state owned islands on the lake. Loons, eagles, herons, hummingbirds, and pileated woodpeckers are common sightings. Deer can be seen right around the cabin or often come to drink at the lake at dusk. Otters are also lake residents and are often seen. The photos below were taken on the lake near the cabin.
Guests may swim off the pier or swim raft. There is a sandy bottom and a gradual drop off to about 5 feet. The water is clear.
Biking and Hiking
The Crystal Lake BikeTrail is a beautiful paved bike trail, perhaps the best in the state. Starting in Boulder Junction the trail goes through the Crystal Lake campground and extends to Sayner and St. Germain. There are some nice Mountain Biking trails in the area also including Razorback Ridges and the Lumberjack Trail.
Some of the most beautiful trails in the state are just minutes from the cabin.
Two of the best are the Escanaba-Pallette Lake Trail and Razorback Ridges.
The cabin lies at the edge of the Northern Highland State Forest which has numerous hiking opportunities. A popular trail is the Fallison Lake trail a few miles south of Boulder Junction off of Hwy N.
