Appreciate the Beauty of Nature in Phelps!


Phelps is surrounded by natural beauty all year long! If you are an outdoors lover, you will appreciate the abundance of freshwater lakes, vast forests and wonderful natural resources that you will find in Phelps. Spring and summer bring colorful wildflowers and unlimited outdoor activities. Fall is a time of wonder as the trees turn from lush green to an array of oranges, reds, and yellows that just beg to be photographed. Winter in Phelps means glistening snow and amazing views of trees dripping with icicles, along with world-class snowmobiling and ice fishing.

phelps2With 41 lakes and the headwaters of the Wisconsin River, you will discover some of the best fishing in the Northwoods, no matter the season. Enjoy kayaking, canoeing, boating, swimming, and even scuba diving in crystal clear waters. The many lakes are also wonderful destinations for wildlife observation and photography, as it’s quite common to hear the call of the loon echoing over a lake or to spot a bald eagle diving down for its dinner.

The picture-perfect community of Phelps is nestled into the vast Chequamegon – Nicolet National Forest, with the Ottawa National Forest of the Upper Peninsula right next door. Living in Phelps means that all these spectacular natural resources are right at your fingertips to enjoy whenever you have the time. Miles of hiking and biking trails are available, and the Great Headwaters Trails Association is working hard to enhance these outdoor experiences throughout Vilas County.

If you love spending your free time in the great outdoors, make your home Phelps Wisconsin!
