Enjoy the Outdoors at Wind Drift Resort

Recreation abounds in this spectacular area of the southern Upper Peninsula. Fish for Walleye, Northern, and panfish in this 4,300 acre lake. There is a fish-cleaning house for preparing your catch for your dinner. Enjoy boating, water sports, or a peaceful canoe trip in the Sylvania Wilderness, just a few miles northwest of the resort. We are close to the Ottawa National Forest for mountain biking trails, hiking, hunting, and fishing. Visit Bond and Agate Falls or see if you can solve the mystery of the Paulding Light, all located just north of the resort.

Wind Drift Resort is only a few miles north of Land O' Lakes, Wisconsin for shopping and fine dining.

This special area in Northern Wisconsin & the Upper Peninsula is especially beautiful in the spring and fall. After the snow melts, the waterfalls are spectacular as the water cascades over the rocks, birds return, and spring flowers blossom. The rivers are ideal for some exciting canoeing and kayaking. Fall colors dominate the landscape with their breathtaking brilliance, a delight for photographers and wildlife abounds.
