Minocqua Area and Northern Wisconsin
Welcome to the Minocqua Area - Nature's Original Water Park. We call it that because it's located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin's Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. And vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. There's no admission fees and we're open year round!
Snow Report from Travel Wisconsin
The Cross Country Cruisers
I hate to sound like a broken record, but what we had last weekend is pretty much what we are going to have this weekend. The trail from Lake Minocqua to 47 trail is fair. The 47 trail is good to very good. The 70 trail is fair to good. All the trails north of HWY 70 are good to very good. Expect some icy corners and some snurt near town.
Remember to use caution on Vandercook Rd, and obey the posted speed limit, watch for logging trucks.
There is still a few weeks of good riding here in Cruiser country, so get out and ride.
Remember to Ride Right, and to Ride safe. Have a great weekend!!

Minocqua Forest Riders Snowmobile Report
Again this week the trails continue to be in good, to in some stretches, excellent condition.
- Throughout the trail system there are icy patches on the inside of many corners. These conditions could cause your sled to spin out. Ride into every corner with caution, especially if new snow covers these patches.
- Some portions of the trails, through heavily wooded areas, continue to have a minimal base and are beginning to show small patches of dirt.
- Trail 5b is closed for the season.
