Close to the towns of Hayward, WI, and New Post, you will want to rent a camper near Grindstone Lake when you’re interested in seeing some of the lesser-visited regions of northwestern Wisconsin.

The area of Grindstone Lake was first discovered by the Ojibwa Indians who describe the lake as ‘gaa-zhiigwanaabikokaag' which can be loosely translated as ‘a place abundant with grindstones.' Later on, Henry Schoolcraft rediscovered the lake and named it ‘Lac Du Gres’ or Sandstone Lake. Despite the lake’s rich cultural history, it is a place that is seldom visited by travelers today.

Getting Outdoors

Fishing is lucrative from the 10-mile long shoreline. However, fishing from the deeper waters can be much more rewarding.
