Welcome to the
Village of Lake Nebagamon

We are located southeast of Superior in Douglas County, Wisconsin.  Our friendly residents welcome visitors to our lake all year for seasonal activities like swimming, boating, fishing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and general enjoyment.  The beach remains the summer hot spot for the young and old to congregate, and the boat landing is used for warm weather public access.  In the winter, people access the lake at the bottom of Lake Avenue. The Auditorium is the hub of Village activity and is on the National Register of Historic Places.  In addition to housing the municipal offices, the Auditorium provides a venue for Village Board & Commission meetings, community events, exercise classes and is available to rent for special events like weddings, reunions, birthday parties and graduations.  The Auditorium is also available for public use in emergencies or natural disasters.

Our general population of around 1000 doubles or more during the summer months, especially during our famous 4th of July festivities! This can be partly attributed to the fact the weather in Lake Nebagamon is usually 20 degrees warmer than the Duluth / Superior area during the Spring, Summer and Fall.

In 1882 the Duluth, South Shore and Atlantic Railroad constructed a line across northern Wisconsin.  A portion of that line ran through what is now the Village of Lake Nebagamon. The Weyerhauser Lumber Company operated several camps in the Village in the early 1900’s, using the rail line for their operations.  The Village was named from the Chippewa phrase “Nee-bay-go-moh-win”, meaning a place to hunt deer by fire on the water.
