Man Fishing in Rhinelander Rhinelander


Wisconsin’s Hodag Country offers an unbeatable mix of recreation options

If you’re looking to get away from it all, but don’t want to feel like you’ve fallen off the edge of the earth, the Rhinelander Area is the destination for you. Hodag Country’s lakes, forests and trails combine with great lodging, dining and shopping to create one of the most complete destinations in the Northwoods.

Unique local attractions will appeal to all ages, including the one-of-a-kind  Kovac Planetarium and the Wilderness Queen boat cruises on the Wisconsin River. Those interested in regional history should visit the Logging Museum Complex, which includes a reconstruction of a Northwoods logging camp.

Of course, great fishing, boating, mountain biking and paddling can all be found within minutes of downtown Rhinelander. You can catch a trophy musky and a first-run blockbuster film, all in the same day.

There’s no place quite like it in Wisconsin! Plan your Rhinelander Area vacation today.
