Have been "summertime" people for years. Nothing beats the Lake Tomahawk Meat Market for the best meat in the entire area!!! It's like stepping back in time. You will never be disappointed in your purchase. Just remember - NO CREDIT CARDS - just cash and checks.

We have a place up here, and it is always a blast. The lakes are beautiful, the Wisconsin River is fun, we like to hop on innertubes and float it. It is a beautiful stretch without hardly any cabins. The restaurants and bars in town serve excellent food and they have Smiley service!

Sure, this town of about 300 year around residents seems like just a little "Blink and Miss" commmunity but, don't close your eyes to all there is to offer! From the outstanding food served in the local dining establishments to the beautiful lake, one of the finest in the Northwoods, Lake Tomahawk is a town you do not want to... More

Lake Tomahawk is a small town located in the North Woods of Wisconsin. The actual population is about 300 + but there are over 1,100 homes so about two thirds of the population are summer or part time residents only. The main street has about 20 different businesses, mostly bars and a couple of nice restaurants. They have two fish... More

It is easily the clearest lake I have ever seen in my life. I was disappointed I wasn't able to spend more time in the area. I will be back.

Nice small town we enjoyed boating on the lake and all the shops in town. Even though it is a small town we found all we needed there including food and drinks. It was a fun time for all

If you want peace and quiet and to do nothing but relax, the north woods is for you. I love it here. I do not watch TV. I take walks with my 2 yorkies and I read and enjoy the quiet. At home the phone is always ringing and there is always some crisis to tend too. The drive up... More

We went to Lake Tomahawk to do some fishing. We saw more wildlife (eagles, loons, deer) on Lake Tomahawk than we saw on any other lake. We had lunch at Lakeside (right on the lake). Food was outstanding and the bartender Josh was very friendly and helpful.

The town was small, but they have live bait, gas, beer, soda, and a small butcher shop that everybody raves about. Its overpriced, but it is everywhere in the Eagle River area. If you're heading up, bring bug spray and sunscreen from home (both were 12 bucks a pop!!).

This is small town on Highway 47 between Minocqua and Lake Tomahawk that grows on you. The people are down to earth and friendly. There's 2-3 good places to eat. The Lions/Lionesses keep the town humming with activities. Known for snowshoe baseball on Monday nights in the summer - have a hamburger, brat or hot dog and homemade pie first... More
