The area was nice but lacked restaurants. One placed we went to was on Dam Lake. It was a restaurant/bar place. The waitress was unbelievably rude. It's a dump, choose another place! Stay away from a private cabin owned by Lowell H. !

Now that you catch walleye the place is like a ghosts town. Seems like the business have shut down. There are no boats on the lake and the bugs are a nightmare.
