Tomahawk, Wisconsin: Family-Friendly Northwoods Region amid Lakes
With more than 15 lakes and three rivers, the Tomahawk region in Wisconsin’s Northwoods is a bastion for fishing, boating, and wildlife. At Lake Nokomis, the largest lake in the area, you might spot a bald eagle while reeling in a bluegill or largemouth bass. The lakeshore is dotted with beaches and launch stations, making it easy to access the water. The rugged landscape also supports miles of hiking and biking trails, some of which run along the Wisconsin River.
In downtown Tomahawk, there are family-friendly restaurants that serve fresh seafood and host fish fry events on Fridays. Other popular summer pastimes: getting an old fashion sundae at one of the ice cream shoppes, or watching the Kwahamot Water Ski Club put on free waterski shows on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights.
