Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like the place. We’ve done our best here to get you acquainted with the little slice of heaven we call Eagle River. Normally this is the spot on a webpage set aside for a bunch of bragging, but that’s not really our style. We’d much rather let the place speak for itself.
We can tell you that other people have said some really nice things about the hiking, biking, fishing and boating here in the Northwoods; and some folks have even made a pretty big fuss over our World’s Largest Chain of 28 Connected Lakes. That’s all well and good, but when it comes right down to it, what Eagle River is really about is letting you do your own thing. This is your vacation, you use it however you please. So go ahead, take a look around and see what’cha like.
Oh, and somebody else said we should mention all the skiing, ice fishing, snowshoeing, and the fact that we’re the Snowmobile Capital of the World® too. So there you go. Hey, we’re not the kind of people to ignore somebody when they offer a good suggestion.
If silence is golden, then the Northwoods is chock full of gold medalists. With over 240,000 acres of public land and over 1,300 area lakes you can bike, hike, and paddle to your heart’s content.
