Recreation

Are you looking for things to do on your northern Wisconsin vacation? It takes more than a weekend to explore all that Florence County has to offer. Over 50% of our county land is publicly owned giving you access to outdoor adventure galore. Ride our trails on your ATV/UTV or snowmobile to burn off some stress. Burn some calories hiking, biking, cross country skiing or snowshoeing our trails or blaze your own trail through the woods.

Paddle undeveloped rivers to reconnect with nature. Take your kids geocaching in the Nicolet National Forest to see their excitement at finding the hidden treasure. Enjoy a beautiful day on the water fishing, swimming, waterskiing or kayaking our lakes. Every season brings another palette of color, berry to pick or game to hunt here in the Northwoods. If history is your thing, the Historical Society Museum is a must do.
