What to do in Eagle River

Help us plan 5 days in Eagle River for August. We'd like to fish, horseback ride, and go boating... We'll have our 8 yr. old daughter. What else should we do?

great go-kart track on the main road toward st germain. childrens museum in town. fishing, boating, swimming should keep you plenty busy. make some bonfires if it's not too dry by then. watch for eagles. relax.

Chain Skimmers water ski show just north of Conover.

Bond Falls about 30 miles north of town.

Star Lake Nature trail in Star Lake is a great hike.

Take her to the Candy store downtown, SodaPops for a fun lunch or dinner.

But mainly, hang out on the water as much as you can. That's what kids love.

Eagle River was voted "Best Up North Town" in the current Wisconsin Trails issue. It's "surrounded by the largest chain of inland lakes in the world and situated near the Northern Highland-American Legion State forest, the town certainly has mastered the natural beauty part. Add cute shops and restaurants and Eagle River brims with charm." (from Wis. Trails may/june 2011)~

Fun things to do with kids include taking a pirate ship ride or getting ice cream on the lake at Pirates-Hideaway, mini golf at Eagle Falls Adventure Golf and Laser Tag, and hiking around the trails in the Nicolet. Here are some links. You can also check out the children's museum.

I would echo the Bond Falls trip. We packed a lunch, and after the kids explored/played in the falls, we ate lunch at the picnic area near the reservoir, and swam.
