Kovac Planetarium

Reviewed By peripatetictexan_12 - Houston, Texas

This amazing structure was built by one man (with a little help from his friends). Kovac grew up as a star gazer and shares his enthusiasm for the universe with his informative and engaging show. A popular attraction on rainy days but don't miss it if it does not rain.

Pioneer Park Historical Complex

Reviewed By PearlBuck - United States

The city wants more baseball diamonds. I say not here. If they can't support their own historic portion first why support new stuff. This park should be première farmers market and put more picnic tables. Add area for skateboarders. Put tables up for cards, checkers, chess. Have a screen and show movies. In winter it should be for ice skating and snow piled for parents to bring kids for sledding. I like the slide and kid play area and tennis courts. Museum and library need to partner to care for the buildings, artifacts, photos.

Lake Thompson

Reviewed By Dan K - Braselton, Georgia

this is a good fishing lake.make sure you fish sunup till 10 or after six in the evening. from 10AM till after 6PM the lake is crazy with boaters, watercraft etc. We worked the small drop offs near shore and caught a lot of small mouth bass and two walleye. We left them there for you to catch. they will check your boat at the boat launch.

Almon County Park

Reviewed By COtennis - Colorado

Beautiful, blissful setting in the woods. Beach is sandy along one edge and packed soil along another. Clear water, so clear you can see the bottom even when you are far from shore. All ages there, but mostly young families and singles with friends. Oh, we were fortunate two see two loons on the lake, each of them submerging for lengthy periods of time as they hunted fish. Quite a bird.

John Heisman's Grave of Heisman Trophy fame

Reviewed By Jason_Klimowicz - Madison, Wisconsin

How the most famous name in college sports and perhaps American football ended up being buried on the edge of an obscure northern Wisconsin town is a mystery. Some say that Mr. Heisman wanted to be buried in the Rhineland, Germany and his pallbearers got lost on the way to Germany and ended up in the tiny Northwoods town with a similar name. Others say that because of its proximity to Green Bay - then the top team in professional football - the nearby cemetery was to contain the bodies of all future famous trophy namesakes. Plans were made to bury Harmon Oscar Nelson, Vince Lombardi, and Lord Stanley of Preston there but it never caught on. Others say it was because Rhinelander was the hometown of Heisman's trophy wife, Edith. Whatever the true reason, it has been lost in the snowdrifts of northern Wisconsin.

I visited Heisman's grave on a July 15, 2013. Other than me, the place was utterly empty of live human beings. To find Heisman's grave, locate the map at the northeast corner of the cemetery on Washington Street. On that map, find Block 3. Heisman is smack dab in the middle of block 3. Pay homage to the man that invented the modern snap by posing in the tradition of his statue.

I came back to Camp Ten after growing up on its slopes in the 1960's and after 45 years of skiing all over the west I fell back in love with the northern wisconsin scenery and great family atmosphere at Camp Ten. Thanks for keeping the dream alive !
