Waupaca Chain O' Lakes Paddling

Waupaca Chain O' Lakes

Waupaca’s Chain O’ Lakes is a beautiful and popular place for paddling.

The Upper Chain is all no wake and only can be accessed by small boats. The Upper Chain is a great place to start your paddling on the Waupaca Chain. There is a small boat landing off of Knight Rd. in the channel between Knight Lake and Manomin Lake. Nice Summer days bring a lot of paddlers to these waters. If you go on a weekend it is likely to see other paddlers on the Upper Chain.

The Upper Chain O’ Lakes includes Marl Lake, Pope Lake, Manomin Lake, Knight Lake and Lake Orlando.

Beasley Creek is a shallow connecting channel to the Lower Chain O’ Lakes. The lower Chain is busy with power boat traffic in the Summer and has many large homes and cottages around all of these lakes shores. If you go paddling during the week these lakes are not usually too busy. Weekends in the Summer you will have plenty of boats to sharing these waters.
