Things to do

Pirates and Paul Bunyan: fun and family-friendly attractions

The quaint streets of downtown Eagle River highlight some funky events throughout the year, including the Paul Bunyan Fest, where chainsaw carving demonstrations take place alongside arts-and-crafts booths and live musical entertainment. Fill up on fresh fare at the Cranberry Fest, which offers a whole gamut of sweet and savory concoctions. Shiver me timbers and welcome aboard Pirates Hideaway, a lakeside eatery outfitted with a pirate ship that sets sail for public and private lake tours. There's no excuse for bored kids in a town that also features miniature golf courses, go-kart tracks, zipline courses, and a children's museum.


From swimming to skiing, every season brings new adventures

When the summer sun shines on your Eagle River vacation rental, it's time to take advantage of the warm weather and head out for a day on the water. Enjoy peace and quiet as you fish, kayak, or canoe across tranquil waters, or amp up the speed with an afternoon of boating or water skiing. On land, surrounding forests make Eagle River an ideal spot for hiking, mountain biking and ATVing. Even when the area is covered in snow, you'll still find plenty of outdoor excitement in the form of skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling.


Got snow? There's plenty in this winter wonderland!

Here's an understatement of mammoth proportions _ you might get some snow if you book an Eagle River vacation rental during the winter. While flurries may fall from November through April, expect between 12 and 15 inches of snow each month in December and January alone. Make sure you also pack your snow pants and parka for a winter vacation when conditions frequently dip below freezing. The town warms up during the short but mild summers as the mercury climbs to the high 70s, and up to 3.5 inches of rain fall each month.

Natural features

Getting wet and wild: untamed waterways dot the rural region

There's water as far as the eye can see in the Eagle River-Three Lakes Chain of Lakes, the largest number of interconnecting fresh water lakes in the world. Where there's water, there's also wildlife and you'll find plenty of it in Eagle River. Fishermen don't need to tell tall tales as the surrounding lakes are teeming with muskellunge, bass, and walleye, while bald eagles add an air of majesty to the landscape as they soar overhead. Of course, it's not all about the wetlands, as lakes and rivers give way to dense forests filled with avid outdoorsmen.
