Lake Finder >> SizeI've found that lake size is the hardest category to give advice on because size alone means so little. People usually have a number in their head as far as how many acre lake they want to be on and then as soon as they look at a few other size lakes the number starts to change. Shoreline, depth, lot location/orientation and many other factors contribute to whether a lake will work for you way more than does size.
600+ AcresThe biggest lakes in Northern Wisconsin. Lakes bigger than 600 acres are often the busiest lakes as they have the most people and the most public access points.
300-600 AcresMy favorite sized lake. Big enough to provide great views and room to do whatever you want while still giving that picturesque "Up North" look where you look across the lake and see the meeting of forest, sky, and water.
150-300 AcresThese lakes are plenty big enough to water ski, fish, or do anything else you would like. They are often more private and quiet than larger lakes. This size is suitable for both vacation homes and year round homes.
100-150 AcresThe 100 to 150 acre lakes are still big enough to be full rec lakes but often have a more private feel. There are usually less public access points and with less homes, there is not as much activity as the bigger lakes have.
