There are over 1,200 lakes in our county and only a portion of those have seen drastic changes in levels - mostly those that are directly connected to the Wisconsin River system. We are not arguing the drought nor the fact that some lakes are suffering - it is just simply part of our natural cycle and not all the lakes are affected. Eventually the jet stream will shift again and our precipitation will come back to more normal levels - history shows it. So, rest assured - your lakeside vacation at Black Bear Lodge in the Northwoods will be just fine! Feel free to call us if you have any questions whatsoever.
