Top 5 Summer Activities of Cable, WI

With close to 1 million acres of wilderness, hundreds of miles of lakes and rivers, and plenty of outdoor enthusiasts just waiting for adventure, there’s no better way to enjoy some outdoor summer living than in Cable, Wisconsin! Take a look at the top 5 ways to spend your summer here!

Explore with Power Sports

Hundreds of miles of multi-use trails provide fun and challenging terrain for ATV-ers and dirt bikers alike. Plunge through thick forest, explore vast valleys and meadows, spray some mud, and enjoy truly spectacular views. Additionally, ATV clubs provide a more social experience for those seeking group adventures, in addition to maintaining current trails and planning future trails.

Discover with Silent Sports

Hike, bike, run, or paddle and get to know the Cable wilderness up close and personal! Hundreds of miles of trails wind through national and county forest and span Northern Wisconsin from Michigan to Minnesota. One such trail is the North Country Trail, which traverses hundreds of miles of rolling hills, jagged terrain, and lush forest as it crosses through northern America. There are also the 300 miles of marked and mapped trails of CAMBA—the Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association—which are specific to mountain bikers, as well as the Birkie trail system, which offers opportunities for runners, hikers, bikers, and even winter trekkers.

Enjoy by Water

Big lakes, little lakes, rushing rivers, and quiet streams… they can all be found throughout the Cable area and offer plenty of opportunities for water skiers, jet skiers, wakeboarders, tubers, swimmers, and paddlers. Boat rentals are also available for those who desire to try out a new sport or maybe just host a party on a pontoon. There are even lake tours and guided fishing excursions available.

Fish the Lakes & Rivers

Whether you’re looking for a quiet spot to drop a line or on a hunt for a trophy fish, Cable is the place. Not for no reason is musky the state fish of Wisconsin—the Cable area’s own Chippewa Flowage is home to the world record musky catch! Big lakes such as Namekagon, Eau Claire Lakes, and Lac Courte Oreilles are all big-game musky lakes, while smaller lakes and rivers provide less prestigious but more readily-available catches for recreational anglers. Walleye, black crappie, and bluegill are other common fish of the area. And for those who really want to fish undisturbed waters, there are the Quiet Lakes, which ban water sporters with a 10 mph speed limit.

Celebrate with Exciting Events

It’s not all about wilderness seclusion and discovery—the Cable area is also home to a wealth of events and activities throughout the summer. Bigger events such as the Namekagon Art & Music Fest draw tourists and residents from throughout the area. Weekly Farmers Markets offer a more relaxed social shopping experience. There are also guided hikes and tours, educational programs with the National Parks Service, outdoor activities like kayaking courses, stand up paddleboarding instructionals, and gardening classes, as well as big outdoor events like Fat Bike Birkie or the Chequamegon 100.
