Wind Drift Resort | Fishing Resort
Wind Drift Resort is the only lodging resort on the Michigan side of Lac Vieux Desert. Our Wisconsin / Michigan fishing resort offers eight modern, fully-equipped, super clean, one to four-bedroom cabins. Some of our cottages are also handicap accessible.
No pets, please.
At our resort, you can enjoy relaxing, level grounds; a pristine sandy beach; and a refreshing swim area, just a few feet away from the front door of your cabin. It’s a great place to get away from it all, relax and enjoy the view at the end of our modern, lighted dock system, complete with electric plug-ins!
Located just 20 miles north of Eagle River, home of the World Championship Snowmobile Derby, Wind Drift Resort offers some of the best fishing in Northern Wisconsin. Lac Vieux Desert, a Wisconsin/Michigan boundary water, is the home of the World Record Tiger Musky! Walleye, northern pike, and panfish also abound in the 4,300 acre headwaters of the Wisconsin River.
Experience all of the beauty that the
Lac Vieux Desert area of Wisconsin has to offer!
“New or newly remodeled Northwoods cabins, surrounded by towering pines and just a stone's throw from the water's edge. Outstanding scenery, great fishing, good people. Your first trip to Wind Drift Resort will not be your last.”
