With plenty of lakes, parks and trails, outdoor activities are endless. They even have a movie theater outdoors, the Stardust Drive in movie Theater is in Chetek and a great place to catch a feature under the stars. Make sure you stop by Red Cedar Lake, (one of the best places to fish in Wisconsin!) for fishing and swimming in the summer. You also won’t want to miss Aqua Fest!
