Celebrate your old man with a Father’s Day weekend in Eagle River. Fill the days with good old Northwoods adventures and unwind in the evening with a visit to pop’s favorite supper club or steakhouse. Whatever he’s in the mood for, we’ve got what it takes to make the weekend memorable.
Hop on Board
Get in some quality time together while letting dear old dad show you the ropes on the World’s Largest Chain of 28 Connected Lakes. Schedule a guide service to take you and dad around some of the area’s best fishing hot spots. We’ve got plenty of them to choose from.
Rough It or Rest Easy
Set up camp at Chain-O-Lakes Campground, Forest Pond campground LLC or Hi-Pines Eagle River Campground. Or, if he’s not the roughing-it kind, consider one of the comfortable cottages, homes or resorts in the area.
Rev Things Up
Let dad run wild on the ATV/UTV routes throughout eastern Vilas County. See the area’s scenic beauty and get a thrilling rush at the same time. Bring your own vehicle or rent one and take a tour while you’re here.
Place Some Bets
It’s a pretty safe bet that you and dad will have a great time testing your luck at Northern Waters Casino Resort and Lake of the Torches Resort Casino. Take your chances and see who comes out ahead. Just remember, winner buys dinner.
We hope you and your dad bring your appetites, because when it comes to meals we’ve got you covered. Grab a chair on Eddie B’s White Spruce Inn’s patio, fill up on steak and seafood at Catch 22 and it’s a pretty safe bet that you’ll find something you love with all of the dining options at the Northern Waters Casino Resort.
Take it Easy
If your dad’s just looking for a little down time, Eagle River is just the place to do that. Use the birding guide and see what kind of foul you can find. Hike or bike on our miles of trails. Or rent some kayaks or tubes to see the area from the water.
Get Out on the Course
Take a few swings at George Young Recreational Complex and the Eagle River Golf Course. See who’s got more game on the links and maybe place a few friendly wagers. And if you’ve got multiple generations joining in on your vacation, you can practice your putting at one of our mini-golf courses.
Grab a Pint
Say “cheers” to dad by buying him a round of drinks at Tribute Brewing Company or at one of Eagle River’s local taverns or tap houses. Stop by historic downtown’s Riverstone Tavern that features an oak back bar from the 1880’s.
