Potato Creek Wildlife Area

In the southwest corner of Rusk County, this wildlife area provides rich recreational opportunities. Located at the outlet of Potato Lake, the wildlife area covers 1,000 acres, including 300 acres of wetlands, 400 acres of forested upland and 300 acres of grassland. There's some ATV access via a marked trail and snowmobiling on a marked trail. It's a good place to enjoy backcountry cross-country skiing, birding, hiking and canoeing.  The area is open to trapping and hunting and ponds on the property offer good wildlife habitat. The wildlife area is most easily reached from Dziemela Road, off of County Highway D.
