Welcome to Thunder Bay Resort...
...on beautiful Lac Vieux Desert ... just north of Eagle River, Wisconsin!

Lac Vieux Desert, known for its record Musky, is nestled in Wisconsin's Northwoods and the Nicolet National Forest.

Our northern Wisconsin resort gives our guests access to outdoor activities galore throughout the year. We offer lodging and accommodations to suit all your needs.

For those of you who enjoy winter vacations, we have immediate access to local snowmobile trails which run literally for hundreds of miles, local access to cross country ski trails and for those of you who enjoy ice fishing the lake is just a short walk from your cabin.


Snowmobiles and Waverunners are available for rent on the premises.

Thunder Bay Resort has recently been featured as part of an Amsoil R&D project! Check out the video below for more information.



For those of you interested in a summer vacation, Lac Vieux Desert offers great fishing. We have 150 feet of level sandy beach for children and you children at heart, Pontoon Boat Rental, and each cabin comes with a 15 foot aluminum fishing boat (motors rented for a nominal fee).

For those looking for an off season get away, the Spring and Fall seasons also offer a great chance to fish, see the fall colors, go hunting or just get some rest and relaxation.

For more information on our resort or availability of cabins, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!!


Rochelle & I are going on our 18th Winter Season since we bought Thunder Bay back in 2001. It's been such a great experience meeting all our new friends & families. Now that our lake is frozen along with snow on the ground we are now accepting reservations for our Winter Season. We still have Cabin's available, (  Snowmobiles as well ),  throught out the Winter Season. We know the economy is kind of rough right now so we came up with a few specials that might make it a little easier to come up to Thunder Bay this Winter. On 11/1/18 we jump back to our discounted Winter rates which is a 18% discount off our prime Summer rates. Plus if you pay by check or cash you'll receive another 5% discount. If you come up to Thunder Bay twice your 3rd stay is FREE. Were also taking reservations for our upcoming Winter/X-Mass Holiday Season. Were looking forward to the arrival of our new 2019 Arctic Cat Snowmobiles that will be available for rent. So try to come & spend a week with us or even just a couple of days. Whether it's Ice Fishing on our beatuiful Lake or Snow Shoeing, X-Country & down Hill Sking, having a drink in our Lodge, sitting around a cozy Fire Pit/Fireplace, exploring our Senic ATV/Snowmobile Trails or playing with our beautiful Siberian Husky's. Thunder Bay offers what you're looking for. Let us help you plan your Winter Get Away. Please call for openings. Your Hosts, Jim, Rochelle, Legend, Sax & Jack Argoudelis, (updated 12/1/18).
