Wascott – Douglas County WI


Wascott is located on the very southern edge of Douglas County, bordering Washburn County. With more than 100 pristine lakes to fish, swim and boat, the possibilities for recreation are endless.  Experience the wonders of nature while you canoe down the St. Croix, Namekagon, Totogatic, or Eau Claire Rivers.

The town of Wascott came into being around the year 1910. It was named after railroad company president, W. A. Scott. Between 1906 and 1908 the Soo Line Railroad came through Wascott, connecting Chicago and Lake Superior. The demand for wood brought the big lumber companies to the area. The last log drive went down the St. Croix in 1912.
