Welcome to Thunder Bay Resort...
...on beautiful Lac Vieux Desert ... just north of Eagle River, Wisconsin!

Lac Vieux Desert, known for its record Musky, is nestled in Wisconsin's Northwoods and the Nicolet National Forest.

Our northern Wisconsin resort gives our guests access to outdoor activities galore throughout the year. We offer lodging and accommodations to suit all your needs.

For those of you who enjoy winter vacations, we have immediate access to local snowmobile trails which run literally for hundreds of miles, local access to cross country ski trails and for those of you who enjoy ice fishing the lake is just a short walk from your cabin.


Snowmobiles and Waverunners are available for rent on the premises.

Thunder Bay Resort has recently been featured as part of an Amsoil R&D project! Check out the video below for more information.



For those of you interested in a summer vacation, Lac Vieux Desert offers great fishing. We have 150 feet of level sandy beach for children and you children at heart, Pontoon Boat Rental, and each cabin comes with a 15 foot aluminum fishing boat (motors rented for a nominal fee).

For those looking for an off season get away, the Spring and Fall seasons also offer a great chance to fish, see the fall colors, go hunting or just get some rest and relaxation.

For more information on our resort or availability of cabins, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!!

We know everyone is on a tight budget right now so we came up with a few specials that might make it a little easier for you to come up to Thunder Bay this Fall. As of 8/16/20 we go back to our discounted Fall Rates. Our cabins will be discounted by 15% off our Summer rates. If you pay by check or cash you'll receive 5% discount as well.
