During an FBI attempted capture and shoot out 15 miles from Dillman's Resort at Little Bohemia, Baby Face Nelson (pictured right) managed to illude the FBI and ended up hiding out in what is now Cabin #5. At the time Baby Face stayed in it, it was across the lake and the home of Mr. Catfish, a Native American. Shortly after the visit, Mr. Catfish sold the house to Marvin and Margaret Dillman and it was pulled across the winter ice to occupy its lakeview on the Dillman's peninsula. Since moving across the lake, Cabin 5 has undergone many improvements and is providing happy vacation memories to guests.

The film Public Enemies starring Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, and Channing Tatum filmed in the Northwoods area. The movie deals with the Feds try to take down notorious American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s.
