There were 1,183 housing units at an average density of 16.7 per square mile (6.4/km²).

For many years the primary industry of Lakewood was timber, but in recent decades this has changed to the service industry. Most of the local revenue is generated by the tourist trade. The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, which surrounds the area, is a working forest that has been clear-cut in the past and cut-over many times. As recently as the 1950s the Lakewood area was known for its virgin timber and pristine nature, but aggressive logging and clear-cutting significantly changed the face of the area. The Holt and Balcolm logging company set aside one tract of land in which they did not cut the original growth. This area, called the "Cathedral of Pines", was preserved as a result of the efforts of Lucy Rumsey Holt who influenced her husband, logger W.A. Holt, to leave it as virgin timber. Mrs. Holt used this area to teach Bible studies to her children and did not want the area disturbed. This 200 to 400 year old white pine and balsam old growth stand is also home to a Great blue heron rookery.

McCaslin Brook (also spelled McCauslin) was used as a means of transporting large quantities of logs to saw-mills or for transportation to major cities where the timber would be sold. The oldest logging camp in the United States can be found on what is now the McCaslin Brook Golf Course.

Today the Lakewood area serves as a popular get-away for visitors from the Green BayAppleton, and Fond du Lac, Wisconsin areas. The close proximity to these small population centers and the relative isolation from major cities such as Chicago and Minneapolis continue to make the Lakewood area popular. The extreme distance to major air-hubs and other transportation centers make the area virtually off-limits to those from other parts of the country and help to keep the number of tourists and visitors to a minimum, further adding to the area's appeal for Wisconsinites. Water skiing, tubing, canoeing, and fishing are popular activities.






YMCA Camp 




The YMCA camp Nan A Bo Sho, an overnight camp in Lakewood owned by the YMCA Fox Cities of Appleton, has been in operation since 1964. Here campers learn sailing, arts and crafts, an engage in other outdoor activities. It is a popular summer getaway located on Waubee lake.


Disappearance of children




One of the worst tragic events in the town's history happened in 1952. In March, three children went missing during a late spring snow storm. A two day search involving 1,000 people. Local Sig Johnson is credited with finding Mary Ann Church, age 4, who was the only one of the three children who survived. Her sister, Kathy, 5 year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Church, and a cousin, Steven Kennedy, also 5 years old, and the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Phillips, were found frozen to death in a nearby outbuilding in the Gillet Lake area.
