In is on the northeast shore of Star Lake, and on the Chicago, Milwauke and St. Paul Railray, about 4 miles north east of Sayner. To the north on Lake Ballard, Irving and Laura, while south of Star Lake are rice, Razorback and Plum Lakes. The hamlet is the immediate source of supplies for a number of neighboring resorts and there is a post office here, of which J. O. Mykleby is postmaster. The public utility accommodations of telegraph, express, and telephone service are also to be found here. Star Lake is 17 miles northwest of Eagle River and 19 miles from Minocqua, which latter place is the banking point for the neighborhood, as it is reached directly by the railroad. At one time there was a large up-to-date sawmill at Star Lake, owned by the Salsich-Wilson Lumber Co. who cut annually 50,000,000 feet of pine timber. During the sawmill activities Star Lake had about 600 inhabitants.
