Jack Lake’s clean, clear water and its “no motors” designation make it ideal for swimming and canoeing. You’ll enjoy calm, safe and uncrowded waters on a sandy beach! Jack Lake is also a great place to wet a line. Fishermen enjoy excellent populations of bass, trout, and panfish. The park offers a public boat landing, boat rentals, fishing bait sales and several piers for the shore fisherman. (Remember the operation of outboard motors is prohibited; however, electric motors are legal.)
Outdoor enthusiasts will find many miles of scenic trails to explore which are easily accessible from Veteran’s Memorial Park. The Game Lake Nature Trail meanders through several forest habitats, crosses a floating bog and circles a wilderness lake. The trail is marked and has several access points so hiking distances can vary. The Langlade County Arboretum joins with the nature trail and hosts a variety of native plants for easy viewing. In addition, the Ice Age National Scenic Trail is easily accessible from the park. Please request a trail guide from the Park Manager.
