ABOUT THE TOWNSHIP OF LAKE OF THE WOODS
On January 1, 1998 the Township of Morson and McCrosson-Tovell were amalgamated to form our present township of Lake of the Woods.
Travelers to the area can view much of the same spectacular scenery of the explorers who first discovered this island-studded gem.
There are over 104,000 km of shoreline, making the area a premier vacation destination for anglers, hunters, boaters, birders and nature lovers alike.
The township offers some of the best fishing in the country.
Muskie, walleye, bass, northern pike, crappie and perch are waiting for you in Miles Bay, Obabikan Lake and Sabaskong Bay, and you’re close to the clear deep water trout prefer in Whitefish Bay.
Only dedicated naturalists and experienced woodsmen and women attempt the true wilds of Lake of the Woods.
