Upper, Middle, Lower Kimball Lakes (Minong, Wisconsin)

The Kimball chain of lakes is located in northwestern Washburn County, in between Nancy Lake and the Minong Flowage.  These three lakes have a combined area of around 270 acres, and each has its own character.  These vital stats are a clue:

  • Upper Kimball Lake covers 44 acres, with a shoreline of 1.2 miles, a maximum depth of 11 feet, a mean depth of 5 feet, and secchi disk readings that exceed its maximum depth.
  • Middle Kimball Lake covers 98 acres, with a shoreline of 1.5 miles, a maximum depth of 77 feet, a mean depth of 31 feet, and secchi disk readings of around 19 feet.
  • Lower Kimball Lake covers 129 acres, with a shoreline of 2.5 miles, a maximum depth of 6 feet, a mean depth of 4 feet, and secchi disk readings of around 4 feet.

As you might guess, Upper and Lower Kimball Lakes are both relatively shallow and weedy.  Middle Kimball Lake, however, is one of the deepest and coldest lakes in the area.  In all three lakes, you’ll find northerns, largemouth bass, and panfish.  Middle Kimball Lake also has a few walleyes.

The only public access on these three lakes is at the lower end of Lower Kimball Lake.  There’s also a resort on the west side of Lower Kimball Lake.  Most years the connecting channels allow a medium-size boat to access all three lakes.

Lake homes and cabins for sale on the Kimball Lakes come in a range of sizes and prices.  Although a fair number of them are located on each lake, most are set back far enough from the water so the lakes on the Kimball chain of lakes still have a relatively wild, up-north feeling.  These lakes also have several low-lying areas that are unlikely to see further development.
