Packing Tips - We provide bed linens, fans, dish towels, dish soap, all cooking and grilling utensils, dish ware, silverware, lawn chairs and life jackets.
You would need to bring items like beach and bath towels, soap and other toiletries, charcoal, lighter fluid, paper plates, paper towels and aluminum foil.
Even though we provide them some people like to bring their own tennis rackets, grill and grilling utensils, life jackets and lawn chairs. Some people even bring items like a Keurig, crock pot or DVD player (our TV's are compatible). We want you to make yourself at home here at Brekke's. If there are items that will make your week with us more enjoyable, feel free to bring them.
Weather - Average highs in the Northwoods are in the low 70's by late May, high 70's by late June and around 80 by late July. They fall back into the mid 70's by late August, mid 60's by late September and low 50's by late October when we close for the season.
A common question is when the water is warm enough to swim. Typically the answer on this lake is from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekends. Of course that depends in part on individual preference and weather variation.
Fishing - The general fishing opener is the first Saturday of May. Muskie season opens the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Smallmouth Bass harvest is allowed starting the third Saturday of June.
If you have a boat with an on board charger, we do have power by the lake. You would just need to bring an extension cord.
There are new laws regarding trailering a boat. If you plan to bring a boat further information can be found by clicking here.
Many guests are here to catch panfish. The best tip there would be to keep things simple. Lighter line (6 lb. test), a smaller hook (#8), a sinker and bobber is all you need.
Lake Rules - Three lake rules of note are...
1) Everyone in a boat is required to have a wearable life jacket along. We provide them.
2) Before sunrise and after sunset boat lights are required.
3) The hours for waterskiing and jet skiing are from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
