BTW Big Arbor Vitae doesn't have many resorts either. Your closest lake with good resorts is probably Big St. Germain.
As far as the fishing... We spend most of our time chasing muskies and have had a very good week in some years, but it's been terrible for us the last three years. Some of that is due to the timing of our trips those years (mid-late summer) but it's also clear that the population of "action-sized" muskies in the 20-32" range has plummeted in LAV. Walleye numbers are also currently poor compared to the past. On the other hand, the LM and SM bass fishing has been very good the past few years.
As far the "summer with the family" stuff... Not sure how to put this gently, but one of the great things about fishing LAV is the *lack* of waterskiers and tubers. When there are people out doing that it's hard for them to stay away from the anglers and boaters who are trying to enjoy the eagles, loons, osprey and general peace and quiet that comes by not having skiers/tubers buzzing around.
