Idle Hour provides many ways to have fun and relax. Although fishing, water sports and snowmobiling are the resort's principal attractions, ATV riders, hiking enthusiasts, cross county skiers, mountain bikers and nature lovers will find many nearby picturesque trails and paths that feature frequent sights of wildlife. Deer and eagles are commonly sighted in the heart of the Chequamegon National Forest which includes over one million acres of publicly accessible land.

Pike Lake Chain of Lakes
The Pike lake Chain of Lakes is a group of four fully navigable lakes, two creeks and one lake is accessible by a short portage through the wilderness area. The two class A Musky lakes are approximately 800 acres each. Both are open for motor trolling. The smaller lakes are approximately 350 acres each and all lakes and creeks are naturally connected for fishing and touring pleasure. To ensure that fisherman, waterskiers, and boating enthusiasts have ample time and space to enjoy the lakes and surrounding nature, a town ordinance regulates waterskiing hours from 10am to 5pm.

Great Fishing!
Muskie, Walleye, Northern Pike, Crappie, Perch, Bluegill, Sunfish, and Rock Bass are all plentiful with Smallmouth Bass making a strong comeback in the past few years. Professional guides bring people to these waters because they consistently catch high numbers of legal Musky and the occasional 50+ inch, 40+ lb. trophy fish. The spring crappie spawn can yield some spectacular action or just take the kids out anytime for some Panfish fun. Fishermen and women of all ages will enjoy hours of fun on the Pike Lake chain.
