Indoor and Outdoor Fun Activities Are Everywhere!
There are loads of recreational activities available during all four seasons without ever having to get into your car. Just walk out the front door. Buckhorn Lake is connected to a canal, linked to other lakes and the Black River. You can canoe, kayak, swim, fish, bike (we have a canoe, two-person kayak and bikes on site) and cross country ski or snowshoe for hours without ever having to get in your car. So throw your car keys away for a while and technology (if you can) and get to know your spouse, family and/or friends or even yourself better.
If you want to venture out, one mile away is Lake Arbutus, an 839-acre lake with boat and jet-ski rentals, boat ramps, picnic areas, beaches and playgrounds and an old-fashion roller skating ring. Discover some special treasures at the Thunderbird Village Flea Market Craft Show, The area’s largest flea market and craft show on May 9-10 – Mothers Day, May 23-25 – Memorial Day Weekend, July 3-5 – 4th of July Weekend, August 8-9, September 5-7 – Labor Day Weekend and September 19-20. All just one mile away from the cabin.
We are close to thousands of acres of public land known for great whitetail deer and turkey hunting. Outstanding mountain biking, cross-country ski, snow shoeing and hiking trails are approximately 5 miles away at Levis Trow Mound. There’s also Bruce Mound Winter Recreation Area which offers snow tubing, snow-boarding and downhill skiing only 15 minutes away.
The Black River is an excellent river for leisure and white water canoeing , kayaking, tubing, and fishing. Wazee Lake, is 20 minutes away. It’s a spring fed lake with the clearest water you can imagine and is Wisconsin’s deepest inland lake, and a prime location for scuba diving, trout fishing, swimming and snorkelling. The Black River Falls also has a beautiful Aquatic Center with a waterslide and inner tubes for the slides. Newly resurfaced tennis courts, skate board park, basket ball courts, baseball fields are next door. There’s also an amputheatre for live music in the summer.
There are plenty of indoor activities as well. Majestic Pines Casino is nearby, as is a affordable movie theatre and antiquing in Black River Falls along with many other local attractions, museums, fairs restaurants and shopping.
