When people talk about a classic Northwoods vacation, they’re talking about the Eagle River area. Located on a chain of twenty-eight lakes, the largest freshwater chain in the world, Eagle River is famous for its clear, cool lakes filled with game fish.
Ice cream parlors, candy stores and souvenir shops line Eagle River’s Main Street, conveying a genuine small town charm. In autumn, more than 40,000 enjoy the city’s Cranberry Fest – the largest food festival in the Northwoods. In winter, the community shifts gears to cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, including the World’s Championship Snowmobile Derby held on the city’s half mile iced oval.
