Location & Area Highlights

Knight Lake is a 14 acre spring fed, glacial lake in Lincoln County, 20 minutes south of Tomahawk and 25 minutes north of Wausau.  A unique setting that feels like far north wilderness without the long drive!


  • North Central Wisconsin, 10 minutes north of Merrill
  • 25 minutes north of Wausau | 20 minutes south of Tomahawk
  • 3.5 hrs from Milwaukee, Madison & Twin Cities
  • 5 hrs from Chicago

A great place for swimming, fishing, star gazing, or just relaxing to the music of singing frogs, a crackling campfire, or rain pattering on the roof while you get lost in a good book, soaking up the sun on the dock, or wrapped in gentle breezes in the hammock.

Things to Do:

Testimonial:  Tranquility on Knight Lake~My wife and I, were looking for a cabin by the lake to enjoy the following: nature, fishing, hiking, biking and relaxation. A home away from home! We found all this and more at the Knight Lake Cabin . Mark and Irene, the owners welcomed us with their friendly hospitality and provided us with everything we needed to make our stay (6 days) very enjoyable. The cabin was very comfortable, clean, well maintained with a peaceful surrounding in a great location. Merrill (10 minutes away) is close by for all your needs, such as fishing bait, gas, grocery’s and restaurants.We are very thankful and blessed for the time we had at the cabin, and the people we met during our time there.  We look forward to seeing them again, and would encourage all to enjoy what we enjoyed at least once!  

Fishing on Knight Lake:

Fish for large-mouth bass, Northern pike, and pan fish (blue gills, crappies). There’s a  helpful “Fishing Minute Report” 4 times a day on the local Tomahawk radio station 92.5 FM  (radio in each cabin), that gives the peak feeding times,  what’s biting  and recommended baits to use.  The lake is approximately 25 feet at the deepest, and also home to frogs and turtles.
