Located in the town of Clover, between Cornucopia and Port Wing, Herbster is a small and rustic town where life goes by at a much slower pace. This is a place where you can literally stop and smell the flowers. Surrounded by the scenic beauty of the largest freshwater lake in the world, the town captivates you the moment you arrive.
This northland town is a popular stop on Wisconsin road trips, but Herbster is more than just a name on an itinerary. It’s a great place to live, with numerous opportunities for recreation and personal growth.
Festivals and community events take place throughout the year, offering you plenty of things to do on land as well.
