Fish and Vacation on the Menominee River




The cabin is comfortable with approximately 1450 square feet of living space.  There  is one large bedroom upstairs with a queen and full size bed and a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub.  There is also a screened in porch upstairs.  Two bedrooms downstairs each have two beds, for a total of 6 beds (3 twins, 2 full, and 1 queen) You also have 2 kayaks, 1 canoe, and 1 fourteen ft aluminum non-motorized fishing boat to use.  There is also a firepit by the river to enjoy on those cool nights.   This is a quiet area, if you are looking for an area with lots of boat traffic and jet skis, this area is not for you!


Fishing, kayaking, swimming, tubing, and relaxing are just a few activities at the Tinker's Dam property, but if you are looking for a couple of day trips, there is plenty to do in the area.  There is white water rafting, DeYoung's family zoo to check out, take a waterfall tour, and lakes that rent pontoon boats all within 10 to a 45 minute drive.  Crivitz is just 30 minutes west, and the cities of Marinette/Menominee/Peshtigo are less than 15 miles south.  Green Bay is about an hour's drive.   See the "Attractions" link above of more details.

Tinker's Dam is located in Porterfield Wisconsin, about 12 miles north of the city of Marinette on the Menominee River. The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house is on a 4 acre lot, with approximately 320 feet of river frontage. It is private, and is situated on a corner of the river so it seems like it wraps around the property. To the east, the river significantly widens with a small island in the middle of the river. There is rock structures, with dropoffs, strong current and still spots which create areas that fish find desirable.  For people that enjoy wading or fishing in small boats it can be challenging but rewarding.
