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!

Fall Color Report

10/8/2014 - It came upon us fast and left too soon; we're past peak.  There is still a little color out there, but the leaves are dropping fast.

For more information please feel free to call the Chamber at: 1-800-44-NORTH, visit us on Facebook!
