Trego, Wisconsin

Trego, Wisconsin is a town—what would be known in other states as a township—that’s located just north of Spooner. As of the last census, Trego had a population of 885. It’s at the crossroads of highways 53 and 63, and it’s within easy commuting distance of Hayward, Spooner, Shell Lake, and Rice Lake. You’ll find lodging available at resorts, cabin rentals, and VRBO lake homes.

Best of all, the Trego area is home to dozens of lakes—including Trego Lake, which lies just west of U.S. 53 and is formed by a dam on the Namekagon River. You may also hear it called the Trego Flowage; here in northwest Wisconsin, the term Flowage is often used to describe the lake formed upstream of a dam. (Other flowages in this area include the Minong Flowage and the Gordon Flowage.) In addition to Trego Lake, there’s the McKenzie Lakes, Lincoln Lake, McKinley Lake, Dunn Lake, Casey Lake, Island Lake, and lots more. Most are located in the area west and northwest of Trego. Two other lakes, Silver Lake and Gull Lake, are located a short distance northeast of Trego.
