for the winter or any one of the other terrific seasons here!We are 12 miles southwest of Watersmeet and 15 miles northwest of Land O’ Lakes, WI. We’re 34 miles from Eagle River, WI, 300 miles north of Milwaukee, WI and 390 miles north of Chicago, IL. It’s about a 5 ½ hour drive to either the Mackinaw Bridge or Minneapolis, MN.

If you haven’t been able to get away yet this summer, we can help!  We have openings starting August 1 to 8 and on again!  You need a vacation, and we want to help!  Just give us a call.  We have deluxe boats and motors, a fishing pontoon, and fishing boats with 15 hp motors available, too.  The weather has been great, the fish have been biting, and there are plenty of memories to be made here on the beautiful Cisco Chain!   

We have our Facebook page up and running.  Please “Like” us at The Arrows Resort!  I have some newer fish pictures up and even a picture of the moose that Denver recently saw a mile from us!!! 

THE CISCO CHAIN OF LAKES is comprised of 15 navigable lakes with 270 miles of shoreline.  Thousand Island Lake is the largest of these scenic lakes and has numerous islands and bays.  A day boating on the chain is a memorable one… be sure to include the smaller uninhabited lakes, too.

Our son, Bryan, with his nice musky!

WALLEYES, MUSKIES (the state record musky was caught in 1980 on our lake!) large and smallmouth bass, northerns, perch, crappies, and other panfish are plentiful.  Many trophy fish are taken each year.  Thousand Island also contains lake trout, splake, and cisco.  Explore any of the 302 lakes and 241 miles of trout streams located in Watersmeet alone.

WILDLIFE abounds here.  There are many, many nesting pairs of bald eagles and loons on our chain.  Deer, coyote, raccoon, red fox, bobcat, skunk, otter, beaver, muskrat, bear, porcupine, fisher, etc. are abundant in our area.  Even bobcats and timberwolves reside in Sylvania (we’ve had radio-collared wolves in our yard a few times!).

We are located in the OTTAWA NATIONAL FOREST and just one mile from Sylvania Wilderness and Recreation Area.  Sylvania is a national forest with 21,000 acres of virgin forests and 36 unspoiled lakes.  This area is closed to motor boats on most lakes (and snowmobiles in the winter), but it is available to the public for canoeing, picnicking, hiking, fishing, swimming, hunting (in season), and winter sports.  There is a beautiful sand beach on Clark Lake which we highly recommend for swimming.

FLAMING FORESTS of colored trees brighten our area from the end of August till sometime in October.  This is a wonderful time to visit the chain.  The fish are biting better with the cooler waters, and fewer people are boating with school back in session.  You’ll long remember the peacefulness and beauty of the chain in the fall.  Late October and early November can provide some of the best fishing of the year!  Terrific fall and spring discounts and super discounts.

BOWHUNTING AND SMALL GAME HUNTING are popular in the fall.  Many deer, partridge, ducks, geese, and even bear are taken each year.  Our gun deer season runs from November 15 to 30 each year.

ATV, UTV, SNOWMOBILE AND BIKE from your door.  Our county road (Thousand Island Lake Road)  is an access trail to the main snowmobile and ATV/UTV trails.  You can legally ride on the right side of the road to the main trails.  When the ice is safe, you can also access the snowmobile trail by sledding across the frozen lakes.  You can connect up with the trail hub here that allows you to head east, west, north, and south here in Watersmeet for some of the best sledding you’ll ever have.  The new bike trail includes all of Thousand Island Lake Road from the Watersmeet side to the Land O’ Lakes side and connect
