The Chippewa Flowage, Wisconsin’s third-largest lake
The Chippewa Flowage is Wisconsin’s third-largest lake, is preserved in her pristine wilderness state for you and all future generations to enjoy. In 1924, the Wisconsin/Minnesota Power and Light Company completed the dam across the Chippewa River, backing up the waters of 11 natural lakes, nine natural rivers and countless streams and ponds to form the Flowage.
The Big Chip is known for its great numbers of trophy size musky as well as being home to the current world record musky (see our replica in the Lodge). With miles and miles of undeveloped shoreline and 140 islands, the “Big Chip” is a vacation paradise with an abundance of fish & wildlife.
