D. Ott Shack is a comfortable vacation home by Dave’s Falls County Park in northeastern Wisconsin.

The D. Ott Shack Vacation Home is located 70 miles north of Green Bay or 20 miles north of Crivitz on Highway US-141 in the northwoods of Wisconsin. Surrounded by woods, lakes, streams, and numerous waterfalls, this is a perfect spot for outdoor enthusiasts or those that just want to sit and relax and enjoy this beautiful location.

There are several waterfalls in the area. Most are only a short walk, but a few are on back gravel roads and the hike is a bit of a challenge. Lots of fun to go exploring for these peaceful falls where all you hear are the birds singing and the rushing water.

Dave’s Falls County Park
Dave’s Falls is a small waterfall on the Pike River surrounded by beautiful trees and unusual rock formations. Just a short hike to the lower falls with a more difficult path to the upper falls. Nice playground for the children. Small fee.

Bull Falls is also nearby on Highway K. Take Highway K to the power lines. Park in the power line right-of-way and take a short walk north to the river. This is a small falls with rushing waters.

Anglers will find good fishing on the nearby Pike River or the Menominee River, 10 miles east on Highway K. There is a boat ramp on the Michigan side of the Menominee.  There are many nearby lakes and rivers for kayaking, boating and swimming.
