Spirited Waters, Inspiring Wildlife.

Just 1.5 hours from the Twin Cities, nestled comfortably within a landscape of winding riverways, soaring pines and incredible wetlands, you’ll find Burnett County, Wisconsin.

Boasting over 500 pristine lakes and nearly 80 miles of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, Burnett County is a haven for water enthusiasts of all types.  From canoeing to swimming to fishing to ice fishing, memorable moments on our waters are yours for the taking year-round.

But the fun doesn’t stop where the water meets the shoreline.  Our natural spaces are second to none – enjoy a leisurely hike, bike ride or auto tour on one of our many scenic trailways or take advantage of over 50,000 acres of Wildlife areas, including our very own Wetlands Gem, Crex Meadows.

A true getaway for water and wildlife enthusiasts and the like, Burnett County is your premier northwest Wisconsin destination.
