Living on the Chain of Lakes

The Chain of Lakes is a group of 22 lakes linked by channels and waterways for easy exploration and extended boat trips. The 'Chain' covers over 700 acres and is located just southeast of Waupaca, WI.

The Chain is known for its bustling waters, unexplored depth, clear water, and vast variety of fish...including brown trout and musky. It's also great for almost every type of water recreation, including jet skiing, water skiing, and speedboating.

The Chain of Lakes features four boat launches, making it easy for property owners to get their boats in and out each season. In addition, the lake is home to two restaurants you can boat to, two parks, three marinas, two businesses that rent watercraft, two boat tour operators, a campground, three islands, and two swimming areas. And, for entertainment, the Waupaca Chain Skiers provide weekly shows throughout the summer in front of the Wisconsin Veterans Home.
