Eagle River, WI Snowmobile Trip Report

Jump to last reply

This past weekend, a group of six adults, including myself took a weekend snowmobiling trip to Eagle River, Wisconsin. We left on Friday morning and drove about 4.5 hours (we’re from the Milwaukee area) to our resort. Here is a quick review of things we did while on our weekend trip:

Maplewood Resort (www.maplewood-resort.com): Excellent location off of the snowmobile trail and wonderful cabin. We rented the Norwood cabin, which had three bedrooms/2 baths. The cabin is pretty new, this is its second winter. It was cozy with a cabin décor, living area with satellite tv and gas fireplace. Fully-equipped kitchen with anything you’d need to cook. The master bedroom had an attached bath with a whirlpool tub, which came in handy after our day of snowmobiling. The owners were friendly, as was their dog, Woody. I would highly recommend this place!

Shoeder’s Marine: We rented our snowmobiles from here. They delivered and picked them up right at our resort for about $20 each sled. They arrived early around 9 am (they said they’d deliver at 10). They were very friendly as well. The sleds were new, only 400 miles on each. They provided sled rentals as well as helmets and cold-weather clothing if needed. My only complaint was that they told us they’d pick up the sleds at 8:30 the next morning and at 10AM they still hadn’t arrived. It would have been fine, had we been able to stay in our cabin later, but we were supposed to be out by 9 am. But the rentals coordinator explained that their driver got caught up and would pick them up from the resort without us there.

A couple of places we ate at that I can remember are:\

Knocker’s Pizza: This place was right across the lake from us, so it made it easy to snowmobile and/or drive there. Although there was only one waitress/bartender there to handle a crowd of people, she did a wonderful job and I can’t complain about the service one bit! The pizza is excellent and reasonable and the appetizers we had were good too.

Angry Dave’s Bar & Grill: We ate here for lunch our first day there. The service wasn’t too friendly at all. The waitress could hardly muster a smile let alone a “thankyou”. The food was mediocre as well.

We also ate at a place just north of Eagle River and the Best Western Derby Inn, I can’t recall the name, but they boast to have the best burgers and Ho-Made pizza around. Our waitress there was very friendly and the burgers were pretty good.

We also ate at a little Mexican cantina in Conover that was on the snowmobile trail. It had pretty good homemade salsas and good roasted pork platters. The chips and salsa were good too.

The snowmobile trails were pretty nice in the area, although I’m sure they are hoping for more snow in most areas. I would definitely visit Eagle River again.
