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 O.J. 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.

Tornado 2017 – Information & Updates

This is the official page Rusk County page for information and resources relative to the May 16, 2017 tornado.  You will find updates on assessment and recovery work, along with notices of assistance that may be available to those affected.  

The 2-1-1 line utilization is being phased out.  Those interested in volunteering or in need of assistance should now call (715) 532-2121.

Any residents in need of volunteer assistance to clear debris from the recent storm damage should call 715.532.2121. They will need a name, phone number, and location.

Any storm impacted resident in need of general recovery assistance can also call 715.532.2121, and a County official will follow-up with you.

While much has been accomplished to clean-up debris over the last two weeks, we believe there will be a need for additional volunteers and resources in the weeks ahead. We ask that those willing and able to volunteer to call 2-1-1 and indicate your willingness to volunteer, times, skills, etc.
