The Six Lakes...

                          of the chain (Chetek, Prairie, Pokegama, Ojaski, Moose Ear, and Ten Mile)  are fed on the north by Rice Creek which originates from a tag alder and tamarack swamp and flows into Prairie Lake, and by German and Pokegama creeks which combine to flow into Ojaski lake. Moose Ear Creek begins as a rock bottomed stream in the Blue Hills and flows southwest into Moose Ear Lake. In its upper part it is a brook and brown trout stream. Ten Mile and Beaver Creek are warm water streams which flow into Ten Mile Lake. The extensive marshland surrounding these two streams provide excellent habitat for beaver, muskrat and nesting for migratory waterfowl.

Floating Island...
     Like watching the grass grow, or the paint drying? This moving experience reached a top speed of almost 30 feet per hour. Check it out!
Crying Fowl...
    Fall on the Chain of Lakes can be really cool. But it's guaranteed to fun with our pre-winter visitors.
Hard water, hard driving...
    What to do with almost 700 acres of unoccupied frozen water? There's ice fishing, snowmobiling, and some other winter activities.
Watch for winter soft spots...
  Not all ice is the same. It's a good thing the lakes near the shoreline aren't very deep. Maybe this is why folks visit here mostly in the summer!
