This view is looking down our driveway. The camera is pointing due west. With regard to snow depth, the tree cover in this area reduces the snow cover by at least 25%.Wheeler Lake Webcam

Has anyone checked the ice thickness recently?


Chris February 2, 2017 at 12:06 pm

Was on bear lake this past weekend. 14″ consistent ice depth. Should be similar on Wheeler if I were to guess


Michael Fritsche August 8, 2016 at 5:10 pm

The top picture looks like it could have been taken from what was once my Grandma’s property. Between the boat ramp and the point. Had a huge round bolder at waters edge right side of property. Just found this group.


Greg August 9, 2016 at 6:53 am

Very close Michael. The big rock is 3 places further down from ours. My parents bought our place in 1957, what year(s) were you in the area?


Chris Hansen July 3, 2016 at 8:56 am

Hi Greg,

I just took a peak at your cams…I’m jealous, the lake looks like glass. Thanks so much for putting these up. Enjoy the boat ride. :o)


Chuck Popp April 26, 2016 at 10:54 am

Thanks for getting it running again. I check it out everyday !!


Greg April 26, 2016 at 11:38 am

Glad someone is finding the cams useful. 🙂 The problem took 5 seconds to correct but we haven’t been up here in several weeks.


Keith April 11, 2016 at 3:23 pm

Is the lake cleared out yet? Hopefully coming up in two weeks to put everything in.


Greg April 12, 2016 at 7:03 am

Ice is still there. This recent cold weather has definitely slowed things down. Weather this week is supposed to warm substantially so it may be gone in two weeks. Hoping to have the lake webcams running again next weekend.


Keith March 30, 2016 at 5:28 pm

Hello! Just wondering of you know how thick the ice is on Wheeler. Thanks for the webcam! Great job!!


Greg April 1, 2016 at 7:52 am

The ice is pretty thin now. Looks like there are open spots just outside of our bay this morning. Won’t be long now.


Keith March 16, 2016 at 8:53 am

Looks like the lake webcam is down.


Greg March 16, 2016 at 9:12 am

Yes, unfortunately our system went down just before 1pm on the 15th. I have not been able to spend any time on fixing it yet.


Carol December 9, 2015 at 3:34 pm

My guess for icing over is 12/28. Was up there the last few days and what ice there was is nearly gone, And there is warmer weather expected!


Dave R October 29, 2015 at 10:03 am

Iced over on 11-19-15


Peggy June 10, 2015 at 2:33 pm

I would like to know about the swim class you have


Head Fish Getter June 11, 2015 at 9:42 am

Hello Peggy, I am not sure what you are referring to since this is my personal website. Possibly you are looking for information about swimming classes put on by the McCaslin Lioness club at Wheeler Lake. Unfortunately, I do not have any helpful information for you.


Dave November 16, 2013 at 2:12 pm

I guess 12/5 … my youngest son’s birthday!


Janet October 22, 2013 at 11:49 am

Have you had any snow up there???


Greg November 5, 2013 at 8:26 am

No snow to speak of yet. Soon I hope!


Dave August 8, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Did you have any damage up there from the storms that effected the Fox Valley this week?


Tom June 5, 2013 at 9:02 am

I have a place just down the road (CTH F) west. I look at pictures often to see the weather up there.Thank you very much for doing this.Very good.


Patrick December 8, 2012 at 2:19 pm


Wish I was up there today. Enjoy it if you are.


Karen Bushy November 4, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Absolutely beautiful on the lake today, beautiful sunset! I walked down to the lake after the game and there are no weeds off the end of the dock. Wish it would stay that way:(


wheelerlake July 24, 2012 at 8:25 pm

I saw it more towards Orlando’s old place the last time we were up. I wish they would move ours, it’s right in our view:( It doesn’t stop people from coming all the way in anyway, they still motor right on through the area. I wish they would mark the rocks back by us instead. Very surprised more people haven’t hit them, not realizing they’re there. We have to dodge the other pile to get in and out, too and they sneak up on you:)


Greg July 19, 2012 at 5:48 pm

Does anybody know where the new Milfoil buoy at the mouth of the south bay went? It was there last weekend but not today.


wheelerlake July 13, 2012 at 9:05 pm

I’ve tried to post to the website a couple of times and it won’t show up anywhere. I noticed no one else posting anything…what am I doing wrong???


Greg July 19, 2012 at 10:43 am

You aren’t doing anything wrong. I have recently discovered a problem with the forum software. Unfortunately the software was previously free to use but they are now charging for it. This has forced me to do some research to see if there are better alternatives available before I commit to throwing money at the current forum software.


Sherry June 28, 2012 at 11:10 am

So glad to see the web cams back after the Memorial Day weekend storm. Thank you.


Dave June 13, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Please let me know if you take donations to help cover the cost of the repairs … I check you site daily & love the view of the lake


Dave June 12, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Glad to see you recovered from the lightning strike … I need my daily fix of up north pics!


Greg June 12, 2012 at 9:20 pm

Yes, I have most of the equipment functioning again. Still have to repair the weather station and a few other things to take care of.


Mike Reimer June 10, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Noticed by your webcam you were up this weekend. We are just a little South and East of you off Parkway. Hot as a pistol this weekend, wasn’t it? Enjoy the webcam immensely!


Greg June 10, 2012 at 9:03 pm

Thanks Mike, glad you enjoy the webcams. It certainly was a warm one but a quick dip in the lake makes everything much better.



Kevin Bethke April 25, 2012 at 7:15 am

Spent the better half of my youth just waiting to go up-north to Wheeler lake. Had a cottage on the east shore drive. Summers and weekends were at the lake. I can still visualize the Red Owl in Lakewood where my grandfater was the butcher. All the family friends. Us kids running around the lake. My aunt and uncles A&W in town, ice cream. Those were the days.


wheelerlake December 6, 2011 at 9:27 am

It looks like the lake is completely frozen over from our vantage point in the northwest corner. It also looks like there’s deer or turkey tracks across our bay in front of our dock already. Unfortunately there’s snow on top of the ice so it probably won’t be clear. A few years ago we skated across the lake at Christmas time and could see all the cracks and how deep the ice was, rocks, logs, etc. So cool! Ice fishermen-just BE SAFE!! No fish is worth your life.


Art December 3, 2011 at 9:40 am

Thanks for the pictures. I live in Florida, but still have a place up there we visit every summer. Your winter pics remind me how beautiful it is up there in Winter. I used to spend a lot of time in winter skiing at Paul Bunyon on weekends as a kid.


Jim April 21, 2011 at 9:22 am

If you need a donation to keep them going please let me know….


Jim April 21, 2011 at 9:21 am

Love the websites, I check them often….Thanks.


Sherry April 12, 2011 at 2:53 pm

Thanks for hosting the web cam to allow those of us who can’t be there all the time, to take a look. A link to your page is posted on the Wheeler Lake Loons – A Fan Club Facebook page.


Tom April 8, 2011 at 8:15 pm

Like the Web cameras. Take a look every day


Kevin April 5, 2011 at 11:42 am

Love looking at your webcams. Thank you for providing these!
