The Best of the Chippewa Valley 2022

Best Body of Water for Recreation

Grab your boat, pontoon, or personal watercraft and hit up beautiful Lake Wissota in Chippewa Falls for some of the best action on the water. Even though the reference to it in Titanic wasn’t exactly accurate, it’s still beautiful year-round.  Splash around or lay down a towel on its sandy beach and catch some rays. Looking to kayak, canoe, or tube? The Chippewa River is the perfect place to relax and enjoy scenic beauty. But if fishing is what you desire, you must check out the waters of the gorgeous Lake Holcombe filled with all the greats: walleye, musky, panfish, bass, and more. –Jen Ekblad
