Located just a few minutes north of Eau Claire, the Village of Lake Hallie is a growing community with a vibrant retail center. With miles of trails and water access to both Lake Hallie and the Chippewa River, recreation options abound. In addition to beautiful, natural scenery and small town hospitality, Lake Hallie is the epicenter of Chippewa Valley water recreation. The Village’s western border is the Chippewa River – a sportsperson’s paradise for boating, fishing, and swimming. Lake Hallie is a 79-acre lake loaded with pan fish, largemouth bass, northern pike, and trout. It was created in 1843 during the lumber boom in the area. It was used as a holding pond for logs and operated until 1891. At its height, the Blue Mills lumber mill located there processed between twelve and fifteen million feet of logs each season!
Speaking of sports, Lake Hallie Golf Course is consistently voted as a local favorite, featuring a combination of challenging water hazards along with densely wooded fairways. Hallie Sports Park serves as a regional mecca for softball and baseball, with an annual youth league that includes thousands of local kids, and several of the largest sports tournaments in the Chippewa Valley.
Looking to eat and drink like the natives? Lake Hallie is home to several great local watering holes with hometown cooking and tasty beverages – including a Wisconsin favorite: the Friday night fish fry.
