Sawyer County is a special place in the northern woodlands that affords a genuine opportunity to enjoy the wild and scenic wonders of its diverse landscapes. Characterized by gently rolling terrain, this sparsely populated rural region offers an opportunity to get away from it all and come back to what matters. Our area invites a feeling of seclusion; a place to escape from the congested metropolitan cities and shake off the stresses of everyday life. Our woods and waters can be explored during any season of the year. The Hayward Lakes Area’s central location to Wisconsin’s Northwoods makes it an ideal base camp for exploring this part of the State’s many attractions and natural wonders. An area rich in history and scenic beauty.
