Lac du Flambeau
Waswagoning, “a place where they fish by torchlight,” is the name that the Ojibwe gave their Northwoods home. French fur traders named the area Lac du Flambeau, “Lake of the Torch.”
Fishing is just one of the many activities that you can enjoy on the area’s more than 250 lakes, including a ten-lake chain. Lush forests, abundant wildlife and miles of snowmobile trails combine with a modern resort, a casino and cultural attractions to create a true year-round destination.
The Lac du Flambeau Trail, a 17.9-mile bicycle trail, runs in two wide loops through beautiful lake country. One loop takes riders around Flambeau Lake and the other around Lake Pokegama.
Visitors interested in Ojibwe culture should visit Wa-Swa-Goning Indian Village and the George W. Brown, Jr, Ojibwe Museum and Cultural Center. Be sure to attend one of the traditional Pow Wows held every Thursday in the summer at the Lake of the Torches Indian Bowl. Come to Lac du Flambeau and Refresh Your Spirit.
