As the winter precipitation continues to roll through northern Wisconsin and the winds keep pushing waves at the shores, this is the result of those actions as of 1/3/2020.
The most recent water levels are posted below. Expect high water to remain into late spring. The levels now still exist some four feet above the normal lake levels.
The sun sets on Norrland Association's 49th year serving the public with rentals of cottages and motel accomdations. See you again in 2020. Opening date should be MAY 22. THANKS FOR STAYING WITH US.
THE GREAT LAKES ARE LOCKED INTO WINTER MODE AND HAVE BEEN UNUSALLY DIFFICULT FOR SHORE PROPERTIES ALL OVER THE BASIN. WE WILL DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO OPEN ON TIME IN THE SPRING.
Condolences to the Jack Harding family. Mr. Harding, founder of the Norrland in 1970, passed away at Sister Bay recently. He was 92.
NOTICE TO BOATERS : HIGH WATER LEVEL WARNING
High water levels will continue into the spring and possibly the summer this year. Dangers exist from ice shoves because the waters are so high.
High winds are expected to ramp up through the basin and may cause more precipitation including wave damage along the shorelines.
WINTER RULES: NO SNOWMOBILES OR HEAVY VEHICLES ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY AT THIS TIME. WATER LEVELS HAVE MADE THE GROUND S LESS STABLE AND COULD CAUSE DAMAGE TO BUILDINGS NEAR THE WATER AND ICE BUILDUPS, SHOVES, COULD BE DISTURBED.
SPRING THAW: NO WAKE RULES ARE IN EFFECT. No motorized water craft can move faster than 5 mph within our harbor or within 100 feet of our entrance when entering or leaving.
Latest Great Lakes water level report as of 1/3/2020. Welcome to winter of 2020. The report shows the lake down 1 inch in the past 30 days. The forecast is for a drop of one inch in January. The current level is now at four feet above the normal datum level of 577.81. Water temperatures are in the dangerous zone and care should be taken walking anywhere near the shore as ice can be slippery as water spray hits already frozen ground.
No pets are allowed with guests or visitors while on Norrland property. No exceptions. Service animals with proof of certification are allowed. Call our Manager before making your reservations.
