WATER HAS ALWAYS BEEN A CENTER OF ACTIVITY AT TEAL LAKE LODGE.
Ross' Teal Lake Lodge, with 1/2 mile of lake frontage and 1 mile of Teal River shore, provides an unique private opportunity to enjoy the beauties of one of Wisconsin's most beautiful natural lakes. A public lake but with no public access, it is a Wisconsin's gem.
Teal Lake and Lost Land Lake provide 3000 acres of excellent fishing and recreation. We are "THE QUIET LAKES", the only 2 major lakes in the Midwest with a 10 mph. legal speed limit. Any size motor is allowed but must stay at 10 mph and there is no water-skiing, speedboats, or jet skies.
A perfect and safe setting to truly enjoy the many activities these 2 lakes have to offer: Fishing (be it for the Musky, northern pike, walleye, bass, crappie, perch, or bluegill), boating with motor or just rowing, pontoon cruising, canoeing, kayaking, hydro-biking, sailing, island exploring, geocaching, Eagle and blue heron watching, loon calling, oh and SWIMMING.. just to name a few.
Teal Lake is 1/2 mile across and 3/4 miles long, with six wilderness islands that are State owned. Fed by springs and tamarack swamps, Teal has a clear yet auburn tint to the water, with excellent fishing and swiming all summer. click on map for larger image.
The public is welcome to explore the islands, stop for picnic at one of the many picnic sites, watch the nesting bald eagles soar, or fish with the blue herons in the reeds. It is not unusual to see deer and even an occasional bear on the islands' undisturbed shoreline. The islands provide a unique layout that allows Teal Lake to have multiple nesting loons, so the call of loon always accompanies Teal Lake sunsets. The islands also provide sheltered water on windy days, as does the river and channel. A perfect and peaceful setting for all.
Lost Land Lake is the sister lake to Teal Lake, connected by a man-made channel dug by hand in the logging days and still passable by all size boats today. Lost Land is slightly larger than Teal with many good inlets and bays for fishing yet a bit windier because there are no islands.
The two lakes combined provide plenty of space for fisherman, boaters, and wildlife to all enjoy.
You are always welcome to bring your own boat, canoe, or kayak.. and "put in" on our PRIVATE launch ON-property (reserved for resort guest use only). OR better yet, save the hassle and rent fishing boats, pontoons, and other watercraft from us.
Interested on what fish species lie beneath the quiet waters of Teal lake and our sister lake Lost Land Lake? Thinking about booking a Fishing Guide? Take the kids out for Fishing School? Start forming that story of "the one that got away" as well as the one that DID NOT. Go to Fishing information to work out the details.
BRAGGING rights are always important, especially if you join the elite few who have landed the great MUSKY! Grandpa Nelson Ross was one of the founders of the catch and release program for the musky, and we proudly carry on the tradition today. There is an old fashion paper chart in the office each summer with names of who caught, when and what size. We then put it on the web for all to show back home. Also included are fishing resports for past years. Come see your name or see what has been landed in the past years, so you can plan for your name to join the list this year.
