“a mysterious woodland creature”

The Hodag is a mysterious woodland creature that makes its home in the Rhinelander Area. Why the Hodag is only found in the Rhinelander Area is not certain. However, many people believe that it is the clean lakes, dense forests and incredible natural beauty that ties the Hodag to the Rhinelander Area. What does the Hodag look like? Eyewitness accounts, along with rumor, legend and speculation, indicate that the Hodag is most definitely green. The first person to see the Hodag was Eugene Shepard, who in 1893 saw what he described as a lizard-like creature covered with white horns. More than a century of sightings and research seems to support this description. To get an accurate idea of what the Hodag looks like, visit the Visitor Center at 450 West Kemp Street in Rhinelander.
