Post Lake Facts

Upper and Lower Post lakes are scenic lakes located in northern Wisconsin’s in Langlade and Oneida counties. The lakes are a widening of the Wolf River divided into Upper Post Lake (765 acres) and Lower Post Lake (379 acres). The headwaters of the Wolf River is Pine Lake in Oneida county about 20 miles north of Upper Post Lake. First known inhabitants were the Sokaogon Ojibwe tribe who lived along the shores of Upper Post Lake.

Today Post Lake is a thriving community with permanent and seasonal residents. Fishing is still Post Lake’s favorite sport. There is an annual ice fishing jamboree every February.
