About Eagle River

Eagle River is one of the most premier vacation destinations in the Northwoods. The town has a population of around 1,400 which increases in the summer months.

The town is situated on the world’s largest chain of lakes with 28 pristine lakes to pick from. All of these lakes offer incredible opportunities for anglers to catch some trophy fish. The calmness of the Northwoods lakes is unparalleled by any lakes in the southern region of the state. These pollution free lakes also offer the chance to do some water sports, such as water-skiing, tubing, and jet-skiing.

The fall months are the perfect time to head up north and check out the bright yellow and red leaves on the trees. In Eagle River, you can drive along the Fall Color Driving Tour and get the whole Northwoods experience from the comfort of your vehicle. Directions can be found here that explain where to go and what you’ll expect.
