Welcome to Rusk County


Take a hike in the Blue Hills: you'll enjoy the Perch Lake Nature Trail, the Ice-Age Trail or the hardwood trails. A forested, glaciated area, waterfalls are hidden in the woods, and deer inhabit the area. Take a boat ride on any of our clean, clear lakes. Get the fishing tackle out: bass, panfish, walleye, musky, northern, or bullheads are waiting to bite. Good trout fishing is to be had in well-stocked streams. Picnic at Memorial Park or Falge Park in Ladysmith, or enjoy the county and city parks at Bruce, Hawkins, Sheldon, Perch Lake, Audie Lake or Josie Creek. Swimming, boat ramps, barbecue grills, tennis, volleyball, horseshoe, golf and baseball games are available. Whitewater canoeing is a great sport on the Flambeau River, while the Chippewa provides a quieter ride with beautiful scenery - again, the Rusk County fishing is great! Hundreds of miles of snowmobile and cross country ski trails criss-cross the county, and an excellent ski hill offers the highest vertical run in the north.

Affordable Health Care Information

The Affordable Care Act puts consumers back in charge of their health care. Under the law, a new “Patient’s Bill of Rights” gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health.

With a “no wrong door” approach, an individual or family can determine what type of insurance they can receive: •BadgerCare+ •Private plans with tax credits •Catastrophic plans

The Marketplace is a place people can go to compare insurance plans and determine what additional services beyond the essential health benefits they may want or need.
