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.
LET'S MAKE A SPLASH
We take our title as "Nature's Original Waterpark™" very seriously. Once you arrive, you might never want to leave the boat. Our 2,300 bodies of water are premier destinations for fishing, boating, water skiing, tubing, or wakeboarding. Memories are made here one boat ride, swim, & paddle at a time.
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. There are 25 breathtaking waterfalls within 85 miles of Minocqua. Visiting these waterfalls are a must-see day trip to add to your vacation itinerary.
LET'S HIT THE TRAILS
Hundreds of miles of trails crisscross the Minocqua area, ducking in and out of the woods and sometimes paralleling the roads, offering innumerable cycling and hiking experiences. With over a million acres of public forest and over 600 miles of trails, our area provides the perfect backdrop for any ride or walk.
ATV riding has become an exciting recreational sport for many in the state of Wisconsin. Our area provides access to many trail systems within a short drive. The Town of Minocqua will be opening up 11.5 miles of ATV routes in the Township for the purpose of accessing neighboring trail systems.
