The Chippewa River Lodge Resort

Welcome to the Chippewa River Lodge Resort, renowned as the most-beloved single-building resort in the Hayward, Wisconsin area.

"The Lodge" in Ojibwa, Wisconsin (near Hayward, Wisconsin), is a great place to plan family reunions, corporate outings, corporate meetings, fishing trips, ATV and snowmobile outings and any event where lots of space and plenty of sleeping accommodations are needed.

You're in muskie country! Fishermen and women, make sure your rod and reel are ready for the spectacular fishing options just up the river on Lake Chippewa Flowage, and at the bottom of the Winter Dam, where you can almost always find a boat of wise locals fishing for the next record-breaking muskies.

The Lodge is available by the week or on weekends. There is a large kitchen for preparing your best fixings and a separate dining room overlooking the front yard (which is shaded with one hundred your old pines) and the Chippewa River. The classic pine sitting parlor, located between the dining room and bar, is a nice place for relaxing between activities. The Main Bar (you supply your own spirits), complete with a stone gas fireplace surrounded by couches, is perfect for unwinding and telling the day's fish stories. The Recreation Room, separate from the main bar, has a pool table, ping pong table and darts, where you can test your skills without disturbing those relaxing in the Lodge. It's also furnished with couches, a television, and a small stage for guitar and banjo pickin'.
