The Sapphire Lake In Wisconsin That’s Devastatingly Gorgeous
Up in Vilas County almost to the Michigan border is an area absolutely chock full of lakes large and small. But tucked in it’s own State Natural Area, Nell Lake is an especially stunning, blue lake that just makes you want to relax, daydream and enjoy.
This 26 acre lake is only 18 feet deep, which helps account for the stunning blue of its waters.
Tucked away in Vilas County, an area with tons of lakes, you might overlook this gorgeous gem.
Part of Nell Lake are two small bog lakes with shoreline and swamp islands that have old-growth red pine and hemlock-hardwood trees.
One of the islands is home to an old heron rookery, so aside from the beautiful blue water, you might get to see some birds.
The bog also supports some swamp orchids, so you'll see a whole unique ecosystem at Nell Lake.
The lake is great for fishing, as it has pan fish and largemouth bass.
The stunning color, the peaceful remoteness and the awesome wildlife make Nell Lake an amazing escape in Wisconsin.
This little slice of heaven is just waiting for you to discover it.
