Lac Vieux Desert in the North Woods of Michigan and Wisconsin
Divided between Gogebic County (Michigan) and Vilas County (Wisconsin), Lac Vieux Desert is the source of the Wisconsin River and is fed primarily by springs in the surrounding swamps. The northeastern lobe of the Lac Vieux Desert contains a number of small islands, including Draper Island in Michigan and Duck Island in Wisconsin. The maximum depth is about 40 feet, surface area is 4,260 acres (approx 6.66 sq. mi.), of which, approximately 2/3 is in Wisconsin and 1/3 in Michigan.
French fur trappers translated Lac Vieux Desert from the Anishinaabe language, Gete-gitigaani-zaaga'igan, meaning "Lake of the Old Clearing" or "Old Garden."
We love animals, but we do not allow pets in the house, as future guests may be allergic to them. No exception.
