it's cabin time™ in Wabeno
Forest County cabins in Wabeno offer river and lake activities for true outdoorsmen. Your Wabeno, WI, cabin rental locates you in the glorious woods of Forest County, with 850 miles of trout streams and 824 named lakes. Wabeno’s name, “Coming of the Winds,” originates after a tornado that destroyed a 1-mile long strip of timber in 1880. The Wabeno Logging Museum commemorates the rich logging history of the area when the Chicago and Northwester Railroad traversed the area carrying lumber from the Wisconsin Northwoods. You’ll find photographs and exhibits depicting the life of a lumberjack in historical logging camps at the museum. After visiting the museum, you’ll want to grab a delicious meal at Wabeno’s favorite local Pinchotta’s Pub and Grub with their famous fish fry, or the Big Easel Gallery and Bistro with a whole house of art to explore.
