Teal Lake: The Serene Gem of Hayward, WI

Nestled in the heart of Wisconsin's Northwoods, Teal Lake offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Spanning 1,049 acres and boasting a maximum depth of 31 feet, Teal Lake is a haven for those seeking a peaceful retreat in nature.

A Quiet Lake Experience As one of the "Quiet Lakes" near Hayward, WI, Teal Lake is unique with its 10 mph speed limit, making it a perfect spot for peaceful water activities. The restriction on high-speed boating and prohibition of water skiing and jet skiing maintain the lake’s serene atmosphere. This makes it ideal for swimming, paddling, and relaxing on the water.

Rich in Nature and Wildlife The lake is surrounded by the Chequamegon National Forest, offering breathtaking natural beauty and a habitat for diverse wildlife. It's common to hear the haunting call of loons or spot a pair of bald eagles soaring overhead. The six state-owned wilderness islands on the lake are open to the public for exploration and picnicking, providing a unique adventure opportunity.

Anglers can enjoy the quiet waters, ensuring a more relaxed fishing experience. In winter, the lake transforms into a snowy paradise, perfect for ice fishing and snowmobiling, thanks to its connection to extensive trail networks.

Connected Waterways The lake is part of the larger Totogatic Flowage, which includes the connected Lost Land Lake. This sister lake offers additional fishing and boating opportunities and is slightly larger with 1,264 acres. The man-made channel connecting the two lakes is a testament to the area’s rich logging history and provides a navigable passage for all size boats.
