The Joseph and Augusta Trunck wet boathouse is located on Little Fork Lake on the Three Lakes Chain of Lakes, a part of the famous Eagle River chain in northern Wisconsin. The two- story boathouse is an important architectural landmark in the area and is a fine example of the early twentieth-century wet boathouse. It is distinguished by its gambrel roof, the corrugated metal walls on the first story, and by its foundation. While most wet boathouses in the region rest upon wood pilings, the Trunck boathouse rests upon caged rocks and boulders.

The boathouse is a good example of vernacular boathouse architecture, and serves as a reminder of seasonal recreation and lifestyles of 20th century northern Wisconsin. The boathouse is private property and is not open to the public. Please respect the rights and privacy of the owners.
