For a quiet getaway packed with four seasons of outdoor activity, visit Big Newton Lake near Crivitz, Wisconsin. Located in the northeastern corner of Wisconsin in Marinette County, this 68 acre lake, also known as Newton Lake, is just a small part of the excitement offered in the area including its sister lake, Little Newton Lake.

Big Newton Lake offers sandy beaches, swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, and waterskiing during the warm summer months as well as trails for hiking and biking. During the fall, the colorful foliage paints a spectacular backdrop for those getting in some last minute hikes and boating before the winter freeze. The snow and ice present a pristine blanket of white as trails are used for snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and tubing. No matter what time of year it is, whether it is on the water or on the ice, fishing is always a sporting challenge for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, bluegill, northern pike, walleye and crappie.

Lakefront homes around Newton Lake have picturesque views of the lake and the abundant wildlife that come to the water for a cool drink. Many have fallen in love with this location and purchased lake area real estate to create a vacation house or retirement home. Although the winter's cold brings lots of snow, no one complains of cabin fever as there is always plenty of activity right outside their door with well marked trails for snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and ice fishing.

The Village of Crivitz, a short drive from Big Newton Lake, was founded in 1883 by Fredrick J. Bartels who named his new home after his previous home in Crivitz, Germany. Today, Crivitz, known as the "Gateway to the North", offers everything you may need to complete your trip and enhance your vacation memories with numerous shopping venues, dining establishments, sporting supplies and vacation rentals. Cabins, motels, vacation homes, bed and breakfast inns and numerous campgrounds are spread throughout the area to meet most budgets for any length of stay.

Marinette County, in which Crivitz is located, boasts that it has more Class A trout streams than any other part of Wisconsin. During the winter, ice fishing keeps anglers challenged with numerous fishing derbies on different lakes throughout the season. Rafters and kayakers maneuver along the Roaring Rapids section on the upper stretch of the Peshtigo River which is the longest stretch of continuous whitewater in the region. Whether you choose a peaceful lake shore, a quiet stream, or the rushing river, Crivitz has it all.
