Minocqua – Nature’s Original Water Park

We call it that because it’s located in the middle of Northern Wisconsin’s Lake Country. Here there are thousands of lakes, rivers and streams that literally saturate the geography. Vacationers have long been visiting the Minocqua Area to enjoy all this water by boating, swimming, fishing, snowmobiling and more. The tourism industry is the major source of revenue for the local economy. The numerous lakes and the abundance of recreational activities, as well as superb hospitality services, bring travelers to our community during all four seasons. Outside of the tourism industry, the largest employers include community health care, lumber manufacturing, and local retail stores. The combined population of our communities is approximately 9000, but during the summertime, it quadruples. A large number of retirees select this area for the quality of life it offers.
