Musky Hut

Musky Hut is a cozy seasonal cabin that will hopefully give you luck fishing for Musky’s on Buckatabon. Cabin has two bedrooms, one bath and a fully equipped kitchen. You will find an outdoor charcoal grill with your own picnic area on the shores of Upper Buckatabon.

WANT TO BE CLOSE TO THE WATER? Our Musky Hut cabin is a few steps from Upper Buckatabon Lake and Lower Buckatabon Lake – Our Krull’s Deer Path Resort is actually located near the narrows between Upper and Lower Buckatabon and both lakes offer excellent Musky, Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Walleye fishing. If you are coming up to musky fishing, booking the Musky Hut might just tip the carma-scale in your favor.

For 40 years, this great family resort has been creating vacation memories – kids and adults will always remember the playground, sandy swim beach, gathering around the outdoor fire rings and picnic areas. During your stay, look for soaring bald eagles, an osprey, or listen for the call of a loon.

We have many of your Vilas County cabin amenities covered too: Weber grill, bed linens, dish soap, trash bags, toilet paper, coffee filters.
