Just got back from a tour of part of the northwoods (Oct 2 and 3, 2010), and here is a summary:

South of Stevens Point: spotty or partial color, mainly sumac and maple.
Stevens Point to Wausau, incl Rib Mtn: Peak color as of Oct. 3
NE of Wausau goint to Nicolet Natl Forest/Langlade/Wabeno: Past peak by 3 or 4 days, still some good patches.
Summit Lake to Toamhawk: Some great color, mainly because oaks at peak color, maples a bit past.
Tomahawk to Merrill via Hwy 107: Peak color, esp. Oak. Maples a bit faded.

Overall, color peak in the northwoods is ealy this year by about a week. If you've been waiting until next weekend you may be better staying in areas with more oak forest, or staying south of Wausau.

Stunning colors in Rusk Co. but the best color this weekend was from Bloomer to Tomah. Absolutely breathtaking. You could see it was hard for drivers not to keep turning heads to the beautiful scenery around them.

Went for a tour of Devil's Lake and surrounding area yesterday (Oct 10, 2010), and the colors are just past peak, by a couple of days. The sumac, hickory and Maples had lost some leaves, though it was close to peak, but just past.
At the same time, when you get away from the state park, into the surrounding countryside, the maples were fewer and fading, and the dominent oaks had not yet turned fully,and were about 5 to 10 days from peak. The Baraboo Hills should be at peak color sometime this week, Devil's Lake and immediate vicinity will be fading.
Compared to recent years the color change at Devil's Lake is running about a week early.
There is some very good color in the city of Madison, esp on the west side. Peak should be sometime this week, many trees have already dropped leaves.
