Located south of Minocqua, Hazelhurst is known as “The Quiet Side of the Northwoods”. The town’s population of around 1,200 residents suits the town’s nickname very well.
Since the days of logging and lumberjacks, Hazelhurst has been known for beautiful lakes, forests and family style hospitality. The town is surrounded by many different lakes, with Katherine Lake being the larger lake near the town. The lake has crystal clear waters and offers a great opportunity to catch trophy fish including Muskie, Bass, and Walleye. Nearby Tomahawk Lake is another excellent option for boating, fishing, swimming, and relaxing. The lake is a whopping 3400 acres in size and has some of the clearest water in the state. It’s the perfect place to take the family swimming and take in all that the Hazelhurst area has to offer.
The Hiawatha Trail and Bearskin State Park Trail run through the town. The trail runs from Minocqua to Tomahawk and covers an area the size of Rhode Island. Along the walk you’ll experience views that you’ll remember forever. If you’re lucky you might even be able to see a great blue heron out on one of the lakes. The Hiawatha Trail is a great way to get out and exercise while basking in the beauty of the Northwoods.
