Fun on the Water

Cabins in Central Wisconsin can be found in the towns of Black River Falls, Chippewa Falls and in the Lake Winnebago area. The largest in the state, Lake Winnebago attracts revelers from every direction and offers up countless diversions that are both high-speed and laid-back. First and foremost, fishing conditions are top-notch - especially for catching Walleye and Sturgeon. Next comes speed boating, jet-skiing, tubing and swimming; a marina with four boat ramps and 95 slips is on hand, ready to help visitors find their way to the water with all the supplies they need.

Several parks surround Lake Winnebago add diversions like hiking and picnicking to the mix. After settling into your vacation cottage, strike out for a day of adventure and climb an observation tower to view the lake from the privileged perch of High Cliff State Park. A sandy beach, volleyball courts, undisturbed forests and unique archeological features give this part of Central Wisconsin an undeniable allure and makes venturing out a worthwhile experience.

Lakes and More

Another popular place to consider is Elkhart Lake, which tempts visitors with an array of vacation rentals and scenic views while offering proximity to a surprising variety of cultural hot spots. The Above and Beyond Children’s Museum and John Michael Kohler Arts Center will nurture visitors’ brains while the 40,000 square foot water park, array of golf courses and selection of shops will ensure that plenty of light-hearted fun is had as well. Families will enjoy the options within the village of Kohler and appreciate its rural surroundings. Traveling back and forth from the quiet agrarian countryside to a bustling little town adds balance to any getaway.

Hitting the Town

Named one of the Top Ten Small Towns in America by Time Magazine, Chippewa Falls keeps travelers satisfied. In addition to 450 fishing lakes, forested equestrian trails and points of interest that include the Leinenkugel’s Brewery, it is worth noting that Chippewa Falls is attuned to the needs of winter weather lovers as well as summer vacationers. Over 300 miles of snowmobile trails set the scene for accelerated fun, while groomed cross-country ski trails, snowshoe-worthy terrain and an ice skating rink capitalize on the peaceful sight of Central Wisconsin draped in a layer of snow.

Whether in search of a lazy day at the lake, a taste of fall foliage or an exhilarating trek through a snow-covered landscape, Central Wisconsin maintains a year-round attraction best viewed from a vacation cottage or condo.
