1926-1927 Tourist Brochure

WELCOME TO TOMAHAWK WISCONSIN With the coming hot summer months countless thousands will be turning their attention to "The North" where silvery lakes, sparkling streams, towering pines and a hundred other attractions call to those who seek the "great outdoors" for recreation and enjoyment.

No commonwealth offers as much to the vacationist as Northern Wisconsin with its system of state maintained highways. Prominent among this vast system of Highways is "Highway 10" which transverses the state from the Illinois boundary to Lake Superior on the North, piercing the very heart of the great playground and vacation land.

At the gateway to this Mecca of tourists stands Tomahawk. It is the first locality where the tourist meets the splendors of the North and where all the accommodations are offered which makes one's vacation a pleasure long to be remembered.

At the forefront of all the attractions offered by this community is Bradley Park, the finest natural park in the entire northwest. Here stands a monumental specimen of God's greatest handiwork, unmarred by human artificiality. Almost within a stone's throw of the business section of the city are these 78 acres of virgin pine, encircled by the beautiful Lake Mo-Hawk-Sin, which is formed by the Somo, Tomahawk, and Wisconsin Rivers. Here the city provides two wonderful campsites where the tourist and the camper may converse with a bit of old Wisconsin, the wonderland of Nature.

In addition to these 2 campsites, Tomahawk offers a third campsite adjacent to Highway 10 on the banks of Lake Mo-Hawk-Sin. Each campsite is maintained by the city and is under the joint supervision of the Park Board and the Tomahawk Civic and Commercial Club. The campsites are equipped with shelters, cook stoves, fire fuel, tables, wells poring forth the purest water, bathing beaches and bath houses.

For the past two years Tomahawk has conducted weekly entertainment features for the enjoyment of the tourists at Bradley park. These consist of concerts by the Tomahawk American legion band, vocal solos, quartets, as well as vaudeville features. Originating with impromptu serenades by a group of legionnaires, these concerts have become immensely popular with our summer visitors and now include the finest talent available. Many of the tourists also have exceptional ability along these lines and share their talent among the whispering pines, softened by nature's draperies.

The Tomahawk Civic and Commercial Club will maintain a complete information bureau this summer. This Bureau will be centrally located with courteous attendants in charge, competent to furnish accurate information on the highways, resorts and fishing and to give other valuable information for the benefit of the tourist.

FISHING Within the radius of ten miles from the City of Tomahawk there are 27 beautiful lakes, four rivers and countless trout streams.

GOLF One golf course with a club house in connection has now been completed: another will be ready for play by the opening of the 1926 tourist season and the third will be opened in 1927.

WATER CARNIVAL For the entertainment of our summer guests it is our plan to hold a Water carnival some time in June. This will be a big attraction with experts competing in every event. Some of the features will be motor boat, rowing and canoe races, swimming races, high and fancy diving, canoe tilting, log rolling contests, and a casting tournament. Prizes and cups will be awarded. Open Competition.
