For year round family fun, visit Golden Rule Resort. Just 11 miles
east of Hayward, nestled among whispering pines and majestic oaks, you'll find crystal clear Placid Lake and Golden Rule Resort.
Golden Rule Resort offers year round accommodations in our motel or our managed cozy cottages on the lake.
The lodge offers a bar and grill with excellent burgers and sandwiches, homemade pizza and a Legendary All-You-Can-Eat
Friday Night Fish Fry.
The Golden Rule Resort has a sandy swimming beach and play area to enjoy. We also offer fishing boats and
other rentals; or bring your own boat - you're welcome to use our private boat landing and docks. Placid Lake is
166 acres of fish and fun filled clear waters. Placid Lake is the Southern most part of the Tiger Cat Flowage
Chain of six lakes for a total of 1700 acres of fishing or recreational boating. As a Class A Musky Lake,
the chain is full of muskies, large mouth bass, and walleye. Also, you're just minutes away from many other fine lakes
in the area for a complete fishing experience.
The area boasts many year round activities such as golf, great musky fishing, hiking, biking, small and large game
hunting, and ATV driving exploring hundreds of miles of wooded trails. Enhance these activities with
the spectacular fall colors. It is truly breath taking. Winters are beautful in the Northwoods.
With your snowmobile parked at your door, leave the Golden Rule Resort to experience over 500 miles of groomed trails in Sawyer
County alone. Also minutes away is the famed "American Birkebeiner" Ski Trail for x-country skiing.
Don't forget about the many great ice fishing opportunities on Placid Lake and The Tiger Cat Flowage.
Come join us at the Golden Rule Resort. You'll be glad you did!
