Centrally located on the beautiful Lake Chippewa Flowage

The Chippewa Flowage was formed in 1923 by the Winter Dam on the Chippewa River. The original damming of the river flooded 10 individual lake basins and made them a part of the flowage. The deepest part is 92 feet. There are approximately 140 islands and a number of large floating bogs. The flowage is divided into two parts; the east and the west. Highway CC basically divides the two parts. The main inlets are the East and West Forks of the Chippewa River, Hay Creek, Moss Creek, the North Fork of the Chief River, Pipestone Creek, Blueberry Creek and Yankee Joe Creek. The outlet to the Chippewa River is at the southeast end of the flowage. There are 233 miles of very irregular shoreline of which 93% in undeveloped. This makes the Big Chip one of the most beautiful and pristine lakes in Northern Wisconsin.
