Laura and I would like to welcome you and your family to Spread
Spread Eagle, WI is located on the Wisconsin-Michigan border, 5 miles between Iron Mountain, MI and Florence, WI. If you're not familiar with the area, Florence County Wisconsin is known as Wild River Country and we're also known as the gateway to the Upper Peninsula. 80% of Florence County is covered in forest. It is the only county in Wisconsin without an incorporated city. In Northern Wisconsin, the air is clean, the neighbors are few but friendly, and it's amazingly entertaining.
Time moves slowly up here in the Northwoods, the only place you'll find any hustle is at the local restaraunts. Or if you like bats, you may want to hustle on over to Mille's Bat Cave. In spring the bats will leave the cave and in August - September they'll come back. Fall is the best time to see the bats as they swarm around the cave from dusk to 1am. This local "Yooper" area attraction is #1 on my list!
Some notable area residents are Ken Nordine, the famous movie and commercial voice-over artist. Little do most know, but he's a jazz singer too! Albert Einstein also frequented the Spread Eagle Lake Chain, although not as a resident, but rather as a guest of the cabins nearby. Speaking of nearby, Steve Mariucci grew up 6 miles away in Iron Mountain, MI before he became involved in the NFL.
A nice area summer attraction that I have to point out is Piers Gorge. The gorge features a 10 foot waterfall, canyon walls and the roar of the Menomonee River. This definately is a recipe for fun whether you're hiking, rafting, or simply a camera bug. If you enjoy rafting or kayaking you'll want to contact Wildman Whitewater Ranch.
