Thousands of snowmobiling enthusiasts flock to the northwoods to experience hundreds of miles of beautiful, well-maintained snowmobiling trails throughout the Oneida and Vilas counties. "Sledders" can hop from town to town, passing by glistening pine trees and white-tailed deer.

Many stores and restaurants make special accommodations for traveling sledders, so they can drive up, get what they need and gear back up for the trails easily and comfortably! Snowmobile rentals available in town or bring your own and park your trailer for free while staying at our resort.

There's no better thrill than to see the flag fly on your tip-up on a crisp, bright, January morning. With a hot cup of coffee warming your hands, and your first catch already in the bucket, you're on a roll to making it a quite successful day!

Ice fishing draws people from all around the Midwest. Lake Minocqua, the lake our resort is located on, is a favorite for many reasons. First, Minocqua Lake offers a wide range of fish to go after such as walleye, bass, pike, panfish and more. Plus, after a day on the ice, guests can simply walk to their choice of 2 restaurants located right on the lake - The Thirsty Whale and The Boathouse. Then, a quick walk back over the frozen lake and you'll be back at your cozy cabin!

Snow Shoe Hiking is making a popular comeback and for great reason! It's an excellent work out and the perfect way to enjoy fresh air in the wintertime.
