Welcome to Paddling Paradise

Paddling is a great way to explore the waters of Northern Wisconsin and White Birch Village Resort offers you a great home base to stay at. Here’s a few reasons why:

  • White Birch Village Resort sits on the shore of crystal-clear White Birch Lake and is connected to Ballard and Irving lakes.

  • On our chain alone, you have over 1000 acres to explore.

  • Then add all the lakes and navigable rivers in the 225,000-acre Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest (NH-AL), that are just minutes from our resort, and you will find yourself experiencing the natural beauty of our area.

  • The NH-AL is heaven for paddlers, with 68 lakes designated as “Wilderness”, “Wild” or “Scenic”.

  • Did you know that between Vilas and Oneida counties there are more than 2,300 bodies of fresh water, the highest concentration in the world? 194 of them are within 10 minutes of our resort!

  • September is a wonderful month to enjoy our lakes. The temperatures are mild, the lakes less crowded than in the summer months, and the fall colors begin to emerge!

  • Paddlers can find relaxing Northwoods waters to enjoy and ambitious paddlers can find miles of wild rivers to explore.

  • Kayaks, canoes and paddleboats are available for all our guests to use.

Paddling Testimonial

We have paddled many lakes in the Boulder Junction/Star Lake/Sayner area and each lake offers very quiet paddling, beautiful scenery, and lots of wildlife on or near the lake. We stay at White Birch Village as John and Sue Altschwager are awesome hosts and make our stay something special. White Birch Village is on a chain of three lakes and within short drives of many other lakes. White Birch Village is the perfect place to stay and enjoy all the paddling opportunities in the area.
