About Boulder Junction

Nicknamed the “Musky Capital of the World”, Boulder Junction is one of the state’s vacation hot spots. The town sports a population close to 950, which increases when the summer months roll around.

The Musky Capital of the World got it’s name for what might seem like obvious reasons. The Boulder Junction Area has 194 crystal clear lakes that are absolutely ideal for proper Muskie growth. The area has also been known to pull some of the largest Muskies in the state during the season. There are many guides in the area that can direct anglers on how to fish for the elusive Muskie and may even be able to help anglers catch one!
