Nepco Lake Collage

In 1977, this 125-acre park was donated by Nekoosa Papers, Inc. to be used for public outdoor recreation. This park is located on the north side of 496-acre Nepco Lake. The park provides the only public boat landing available on the lake. The park features just over 1 mile of shoreline, which provides ample opportunities to shore fish. Some other highlights include a beach area, playground, access paths, accessible fishing pier, and an enclosed, heated and/or air conditioned shelter that is open to rent year-round. One of the most popular attractions at the park is the nearly 10 miles of multi-use trails available. There are several loop trails totaling 4.5 miles that are used by many for hiking and cross-country skiing. Additionally, there are over 5 miles of single track trails used for bicycling and snowshoeing. Wood County has partnered with Consolidated Musky Club on serveral occasions to stock musky in Nepco Lake.
