Oak Ridge Resort

Oak Ridge Resort is located on beautiful Lac Vieux Desert Lake in the heart of Wisconsin's northwoods lake country and the Nicolet National Forest. We are just a few miles north of Eagle River, WI, a wonderful, small town well known for its charm and many tourist attractions. Oak Ridge Resort is a year-round family resort. We offer four cabin rentals that will suit all your lodging and accommodation needs, all surrounded by beautiful and fragrant old pine trees and majestic oaks.

We are located on the south shore of Lac Vieux Desert Lake, the headwaters of the Wisconsin River. Our beautiful lake is famous of its record musky (a World Record Musky was caught here), walleye, northern pike, perch, small mouth and large mouth bass and panfish fishing. The lake is one of the largest in the state with 4300 acres and 19 miles of fantastic shoreline.

Come stay with us any time of the year and enjoy many wonderful vacation activities in spring and summer such as swimming, fishing, boating, canoeing, hiking, berry picking, scenic driving, ATV riding, horseback riding and wildlife watching. There is plenty to do in fall and winter, too. You can enjoy watching the northern forests burst into brilliant fall colors as well as hunting, ice fishing, snowmobiling or cross country skiing. Right at the Oak Ridge Resort "door" you will have access to 600 miles of Vilas County snowmobiling trails in the Nicolet National Forest.

Cabins...

Our goal is that our cabin rentals for the time of your vacation at Oak Ridge Resort become your second home, your vacation home. You will be very happy with our spacious, modern, clean housekeeping 2-bedroom cottages located right at the water’s edge on the south shore of beautiful Lac Vieux Desert Lake. They can accommodate up to 6 guests and they are completely furnished including bed linens, microwave, coffee maker, toaster – just to mention a few amenities. Our guests can enjoy a great view of the lake and woods through a big picture window in a living-room. There is a TV set and a DVD player in every living-room. There is no TV reception at our location.

For your enjoyment, outside all our vacation homes you will find a charcoal grill, firepit, picnic table, lawn chairs and of course, a 14-foot boat is also included to fish the lake or just relax on the water.

After a successful fishing day you can use our fish cleaning house to clean your fish and then freeze them (if you want) in a freezer there. Motors for the boats or boat lifts are also available for a nominal fee.

Bring your Pet! Oak Ridge Resort is one of very few resorts allowing pet owners to enjoy their vacation time together with their furry family companions.

About Us...

We bought the property in 2007 because we were coming for vacation to Lac Vieux Desert Lake for the last 20 years and we're in love with the Northwoods. We appreciate the beauty of this area and we want our guests to enjoy themselves so we do our best to make their stay comfortable and memorable.

Lac Vieux Desert lake (4300 acres) is the best all year round fishing lake in Northern Wisconsin. It is located in the heart of 650,000 acres of Nicolet National Forest and very close (the north shore of the lake) to 2.2 million acres of Ottawa National Forest. This lake offers a lot of fishing excitement (musky, walleye, northern, crappie, bluegill, perch, bass) as well as wonderful relaxation like no other place in the Northwoods.
