The greater Minocqua area could qualify as water sports heaven. It is a part of what is known as the Lakeland Area of Vilas and Oneida Counties, so named because more than 3,200 lakes, streams and ponds are found in the two counties. World-class fishing, leisure boating and water-skiing are among the popular pastimes here. Off the water, there’s an impressive network of trails for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. For an overview of the wildlife and striking local habitat, visitors can cruise through the spectacular Willow Reservoir. If you’re traveling with kids, there’s plenty to do here. A trip to the Art Oehmcke Fish Hatchery in Woodruff is always fun – lots of big muskies and northerns to ogle. At Wildwood Wildlife Park they can pet a porcupine or feed deer. Sheer’s Lumberjack Shows are awesome demonstrations of log rolling, chopping, sawing and climbing.
