Peaceful lake. So many trees surround lake, it's hard to see the homes (which is nice). The Lake is large so can find out of the way bays to fish even during the day with people are skiing. This is a perfect lake to jump on a pontoon boat and take it all it. Beautiful.

Lake Thompson is a beautiful northern Wisconsin lake. It's not overcrowded and is also a good lake for fishing for everything from panfish to Muskie.

Fishing is good. Weekends have a lot of other activity on the lake. Better to fish early or late. Not crowded during the week. Winter ice fishing is good too

Lake is beautiful, but drowing out the sounds of the loons are kids screeming on resort beaches and boats pulling skiiers and tubers. Even night fishing was tough. Dark lake so ideally you would want to fish the day but boat pressure negatively affected the ability to do so. No luck on the musky with spinners or suckers.

Will most definitely be going back to do some boating. Loved the soft sandy beach and the fishing looked very busy.
