For The Family

Family Friendly Trip

Sure, lots of families spend time in Eagle River. We’ve got families of deer, turkeys, fish, you name it. But you can see those when you and your kids come to Eagle River on summer break. See what goes into the perfect family trip.

Find a Place to Call Your Own

For families big and small, it’s nice to have a place that’s all your own. Lucky for you, there’s plenty of cottages and vacation homes that can sleep the whole gang.

Or… Sleep Under the Stars

If your family is a little more adventurous, look into setting up camp at one of our notable campgrounds.

Go Wild

Take the whole crew to appreciate some of our natural attractions like Bond Falls, Chequamegon Nicolet National Forest and Sylvania Wilderness Area.

Throw in a Little Competition

See who’s the quickest around the turns with go karting at Elmer’s Fun Park. Or beat one another at a friendly game of mini-golf or laser tag with a stop at Eagle Falls.

Keep it Simple

Jump in for a swim. There are 28 connected lakes to choose from so whether you’re swimming, boating, jet skiing or whatever else you can think of, you can’t go wrong when it comes to getting out on the water.

Pedal Around

Strap on your helmets and go for a family bike ride. While you probably won’t cover all of the trails, there’s still plenty to pick and choose from.

Cast a Line

See who has some reel skills when it comes to fishing. Find your spot and cast from the shoreline, off a pier or in a boat.

Keep Your Hands Busy

See and explore all 24 hands-on exhibits at the Northwoods Children’s Museum and stop by their art center to create projects you can take home to always remember your vacation.

Fest with the Best

Go big on arts and crafts at Paul Bunyan Fest this summer. Shop around and find the piece your home has been missing, there are tons of one-of-a-kind items to choose from.
