Are you looking for a great family vacation destination in Northern Wisconsin? How about narrowing it down to a lakeside resort with great prices, trustworthy reviews, and loads of amenities? Then we found just the right place for you.
Hillcrest Resort is a cabin resort on the Manitowish Chain of Lakes. This cabin sits right on the river that connect two lakes (which also flows into many more). This is a fisherman’s paradise. Record size muskie and walleye come out of these waters. Hillcrest even has a fish cleaning house and outdoor grill for your fish fry dinner.
While camping involves packing up most of the house, this resort takes care of the most. Things you won’t have to pack are:
Linens, coffee maker, blankets, pillows, and cookware.
Things you should pack:
Fishing pole, bait, and net for all types of fishing, bicycles for our newly paved and scenic trails, camera, sunblock, marshmallows for the fire pit, and adventurous company.
This area was once the hiding ground for Dillinger Gang when he eluded the FBI in a hail of gunfire in a shootout. Hence why Johnny Depp’s movie Public Enemies filmed scenes from Little Bohemia nearby. There is also a water ski show, a casino, and a nature preserve nearby.
Just read what one guest had to say about this resort:
‘Hillcrest Resort is a great place to vacation. I love being on the river and yet centrally located on the Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes so it is easy to get to all the lakes on the Chain. All the cabins are 2-bedroom, they are charming and all the cabins are close to the water. There are 2 places to swim and docks for every cabin as well as a rowboat included in the rental. The firepit is very nice, as well as the playground, the basketball hoop, the paddleboat, the canoe and the snowmobile trail is within 1/8 mile of the cabins and is great in the summertime for hiking and biking. Across the highway is Starr Beach with grills, picnic tables and a sandy walk-in beach. The resort is located within a mile of Little Bohemia Restaurant featured in the recent Johnny Depp film PUBLIC ENEMIES as well as other nice restaurants and a Trigs food store within 2 miles. All all-around fun cabin experience with lots of cabin amenities. I love the time that I have spent at Hillcrest Resort. Caroline Mitchell —5 star’
