Although the name Winter may initially conjure up an image of cold, unwelcoming terrain in the Wisconsin Northwoods, nothing could be further from the truth. Located in Sawyer County, Wisconsin, Winter is an extraordinarily welcoming, beautiful and peaceful vacationer's paradise. With a small population of around 400 permanent residents and exquisite natural beauty, Winter, WI is the ideal destination for a relaxing trip away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Like many of the towns and cities of northern Wisconsin, Winter WI was originally established as a center for the lumber industry as a result of the abundance of majestic white pine forests in the region. With the establishment of the Omaha Railroad, an influx of settlers began moving into the Winter area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1905 the town was officially established. Today, Winter Wisconsin is incorporated as a village and is home to a variety of stores, a theatre, a bank, two schools and four churches.
Set in the northwest corner of the Wisconsin wilderness, Winter is a great place to commune with nature. In the summer, hike or bike along one of the many area trails, such as the Tuscobia State Trail, a refurbished seventy-four mile trail once owned by the railroads. Winter lies in the center of this trail between Rice Lake and Park Falls. Fishing is plentiful along the crystal lakes and streams of Winter and its surrounding areas. Stocking programs help to ensure an abundance of native species such as pike, walleye, muskie and bass. Rent a boat or canoe and relax on calm lake waters. Pack a picnic lunch and kick back in the forest. All terrain vehicles (ATVs) are welcome on designated trails. Birding and wildlife watching opportunities abound in the white pine forests of the nearby Flambeau River State Forest and the Chequamegon National Forest. When visiting the Flambeau River State Forest, be sure to visit the impressively enormous white pine tree growing near Hawkins Road, estimated to be over one hundred and forty years old. Against all odds, this majestic tree has withstood the lumbering industry, wind and lightening throughout the years. With countless surrounding acres of pristine wilderness, Winter is also an ideal destination for avid hunters. The cold winter season brings opportunities for activities such as ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
For family camping, Winter Wisconsin cannot be beat. With its location just south of the Chequamegon National Forest and just west of the Flambeau River State Forest, there are many campgrounds in and around the Winter area. So, belly up to the fire, make a smore and relax under the stars of the Wisconsin Northwoods. If camping is a little too rustic for your tastes, consider something more refined such as a stay in one of the many vacation homes or cabins available for rent or time-share arrangements in and around Winter. Who knows? You may even find Winter Wisconsin is the ideal spot to purchase your dream home for extended vacations, relocation or even retirement!
If you are interested in exploring the native plant species of Wisconsin, be sure to check out the delightful Winter Greenhouse during the warmer spring, summer and autumn months. Located on Olmstead Road in Winter, the Winter WI Greenhouse sells over 1000 different varieties of herbaceous perennials, many annuals, roses, trees and shrubs. Many of their featured varieties are native to the Wisconsin area. Enjoy a stroll through the lusciously landscaped gardens outside of their gorgeous greenhouse. Purchase a gift for the gardener on your list at their wonderful gift shop!
Before planning your visit to Winter Wisconsin, be sure to check out the schedule for special events and festivals. Every year, Winter WI hosts a variety of fun family festivals including the July Jubilee, held annually on the Fourth of July. The celebration includes a 10K run along the Tuscobia Trail in addition to many other activities and games. The winter season (no pun intended!) brings unique activities such as the daring Polar Plunge at Bumblebee Resort on Black Dan Lake where locals and visitors alike take an icy dip in the chilly waters. Other events include a chili cook-off, ice fishing contest and karaoke contests during this celebration of the winter season.
Winter's Lakewood Cafe is an ideal spot to stop for a bite to eat. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and carry-out, the Lakewood Cafe is a delightful way to absorb the charm of this welcoming community and spend some time chatting with the local crowd. Be sure to save room for an excellent piece of homemade pie!
For a truly rejuvenating family vacation, escape from the craziness of modern life and adjust to a more relaxed pace in the quaint town of Winter, Wisconsin. Commune with nature in the quietly regal and majestic white pines forests. Enjoy water sports on one of the many area lakes. You and your family are sure to cherish the memories of your time in this vacation home paradise!
