Activities for All Seasons


Summer is a great time to explore the local forests for new flora and fauna. Area waterways offer a variety of recreational opportunities including swimming, boating, fishing and two local waterski teams.


During fall in Crivitz, the roadways are awash with fall colors and offer a spectacular view as you take a drive through the northwoods. The flowages also offer a colorful view this time of year.


The cold and snow of winter turn our thoughts to ice fishing and snowmobiling as well as cross country skiing and other cold weather activities. There are ice fishing derbies, snowmobile radar runs, and a variety of winter festivals.


Spring run-off makes for great waterfall viewing and creates great whitewater rafting opportunities on the Peshtigo River. As the forest greens up, the first wildflowers bloom and local wildlife become more active.
