Quiet Lakes

Escape to the beauty and peace of Wisconsin’s only Quiet Lakes!

Lost Land Lake, Teal Lake, and Ghost Lake

Escape to the beauty of Northern Wisconsin’s Quiet Lakes near Hayward, WI – three sparkling gems set deep in the unspoiled wilderness of the Chequamegon National Forest and blessed with a 10 mph speed limit (no motor size limit) prohibiting waterskiing and jet skiing, making these lakes unique to the Midwest and Wisconsin’s Northwoods.
