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!

Trail Report from the
Cross Country Cruisers!

Vilas County Trails Open TODAY 4 PM

Cross Country Cruises trails in Vilas County will open at 4:00 pm on Friday the 12th. All Cruiser trails in Vilas County have been groomed with exception a short segment on trail 17 between Farming Rd and Rux Rd due to a wet area. This area is however passable by snowmobile. The trails have a 6" to 8" base on them and are in fair to good condition. Remember this is early season riding, so ride with caution. Do not cross any lakes if they are not marked!  Be aware that there is some logging operations on Vandercrook Rd and trail 17 between Farming Rd and Rux Rd, please watch for trucks hauling. We will continue to groom weather permitting and depending on traffic. Let's all be smart out there and have another great season.

 News From: New Tom Sno Fleas

Trails will start to be packed down after Dec. 10th. With trail opening about Dec. 12th. Some swamps are very wet this year and will have to have some careful packing so they freeze down to hold the groomers. Some may even have to be packed first with snowshoes because they will not even hold a sled right now. This is just some of the work most of the public does not see that we go through to make a good trail system for their riding pleasure.

SPECIAL THANK YOU to all the land owners for letting us use their land for a great trail system! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Sledders just a reminder we (the clubs) only have a 16 1/2 foot wide easement across their land, not all over the place so please stay on the marked trail.
