How to Get Here

Washburn County is located in beautiful Northwest Wisconsin. How might you get here - plane, train, automobile? Well, with four major highways passing right through the area, we would say autmobile wuld be the easiest! Those major highways include Highways 53, 63, 70 and 77. While we think that Washburn County is a premier destination for your vacation; we know that on every road trip you need some sort of break whether it's for a quick adventure, to grab a bite to eat, or a rest for the evening. And, how convenient is it that Washburn County is located halfway between Duluth/Superior & Eau Claire, WI?! And don't worry - automobile isn't the only way to get here.
