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.  We also rent snowmobiles on the premises, not only to our guests, but also to the public.  We have 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.

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, Canoe on the beach free of charge and a 25ft. water trampoline.

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!!

Some Comments from Our Guests


A Word From the Owners


Rochelle & I are going on our 21st Summer Season since we bought Thunder Bay. It's been such a great experience meeting all our new friends & families. Now that Summer is in the air we are now accepting reservations for our Summer Season. After 9/5/22 we go back to our discounted Fall rate which is an 18 % discount. We still have cabin's, pontoon & fishing boats rentals available throughout the Summer & Fall Seasons for our guests. Please try to come & spend a week with us or even just for a few nights. 

Whether it's fishing, hiking, pontooning, sitting around a cozy fire pit, having a cocktail in our Lodge,  (our Lodge/Bar will be closed after 9/5/22 for the season due to a remodeling project), or playing with our beautiful Siberian Husky's. Thunder Bay offers what you're looking for. Let us know how we can help you plan your Summer or Fall get away. We're now excepting reservations for  Cabins, Fishing Boats & Pontoons.

Please call for openings or contact us for further information.

Your Hosts, Jim, Rochelle, Sax & Kai Argoudelis. (updated 7/24/22).
