On a sunny, summer day, surrounded by some of the best fishing in Northwest Wisconsin, it is easy to see why Birchwood is known as the Bluegill Capital of Wisconsin. First stop? Take a picture with the giant bluegill at the edge of town, of course! The area offers endless fishing opportunities. A local favorite for fishing, canoeing or just a day of exploring is the Sawmill Park area just to the north of Birchwood. The area offers a high density of glacial lakes, primitive camping and two canoe portage routes. In addition to the fishing opportunities, Birchwood is well-known for their vast ATV and snowmobile trail systems. Easy trail access to lodging, dining, and gas make Birchwood a great entry point for exploring the area trails.
