Onalaska

Onalaska graces the eastern shore of Lake Onalaska, a 7,700-acre pool of the Mississippi River in the scenic Driftless Region of Wisconsin. Here, you’ll find ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter, golfing and paddling in the summer and much more for your crew to enjoy all year round. The city is the trailhead for the Great River State Trail which connects to the La Crosse River, Elroy-Sparta, and “400” State Trails to produce 101 miles of non-stop hiking, biking, and snowmobiling adventures for memorable fun.
