Thunder Lake Wildlife Area is an ecotourism hotspot in the Wisconsin Northwoods. This 3,000-acre wetland wildlife area is a great place to watch birds and view woodland wildlife. Spot owls, loons, cranes, osprey, warblers and sparrows as well as a variety of waterfowl and bald eagle. View white-tailed deer. Enjoy birding from the observation field. Watch birds and wildlife from the trail. And if you're visiting Thunder Lake in mid-summer don't forget to bring an empty container. Blueberry picking is a great way to make your family outing fun.
Getting There
 
Thunder Lake Wildlife Area is located two miles north of Three Lakes. Take Hwy 45 to Rice Lake Road. Turn West.
Getting Around
 
The best way to explore Thunder Lake is to get out and walk or paddle a canoe. There are two car parks in the wildlife area, one at the entrance and one at Rice Lake.
