Best Body of Water for Recreation

1st Place: Lake Wissota
2nd Place: Chippewa River
3rd Place: Lake Altoona

The Chippewa Valley is home to a wide variety of recreation, and these bodies of water make a splash no matter what the season. First on our list is Lake Wissota, where waterskiing, wake boarding, and lazy summer pontoon cruises give way to ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter. The Chippewa River finishes second, gaining popularity with tubers over the past several years but still holding its own with plenty of opportunities for fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Lake Altoona offers a fun, family-friendly environment with a sizable beach and picnic area along with access for all types of watercraft. –Graham Barnes
