Minocqua Outdoor Activities

The best moments are made with family, fun and fresh air. You bring the family and we’ll provide the rest.  Leave the confines of your cabin to explore our 2,300 bodies of water or find a trail in the Northern Highland- American Legion State Forest.  If full throttle is your go-to adventure speed, try catching some air wake surfing or ATVing down a dirt road.  When you want to take it at your own pace, hike across the trestle bridge on the Bearskin Trail or dip your canoe paddle into the river

Northern Wisconsin Waterfalls

Waterfalls are one of most awe-inspiring wonders in nature. Millions of years ago, the Wisconsin Glacier carved out our gorgeous lakes and some impressive waterfalls.
