We took our 2 year old granddaughter who loves animals. Her favorite part was the bunny cages, maybe because they were so small. She loved feeding the deer too & some of the other animals in cages, but the goats scared her. There were only 3 of them, but they overwhelmed her & fortunately we encountered them as we were leaving (on the way in, she was in her stroller) & they nearly knocked her down even though she wasn't carrying food. There is a vast variety of animals & I'm considering a grandparents membership since we live only an hour or so away. Wear comfortable shoes & bring quarters. Feed machines located throughout cost 50 cents but you can get a small bag when you come in for $5 or 2 for $8 (save the bag for feed machine use). I think animals in cages are not quite as interesting to the toddler set unless they are up moving around. The sleeping bear held no interest for our 2 year old & she loves the bear shows on TV but the chasing foxes she liked. Next year I'm sure will be different for her & she'll appreciate more of the sedentary wildlife as years go by. We stayed about 2 1/2 hours which was right for her, but with older kids, you probably want to stay longer. We did not do the tram ride in the safari area based on another's review. Plus, it is an additional $8, payable @ the tram ride & not included in the entry fee.

Rocky Reef Brewing Company

Reviewed By Vickey P - Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

Wish they had more of their own beer on tap, but I understand they are going through a growing period and the beer is being made.

The Tap Room is very nice, uncomfortable chairs, although they look awesome.

The owner is very nice, a must try for beer lovers. And the owner drew or mapped this beer map out by herself freehand....girl has talent, check it out!

Golfed 9 holes (although didn't finish as it started to rain) with a cart late afternoon. Thought it was pricey. For $2 more, can play 18 with cart. Didn't find it particularly challenging course - just enough to make it interesting.

Ojibwe Museum & Cultural Center

Reviewed By Ben M - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

An excellent little museum full of cultural artifacts, which presents a good overview of Indian life built around the changing seasons. Has a nice little display about the Indian spear fishing controversy of the 1980s. One big plus is that you are free to take pictures of everything (a ban on photography being a major drawback of the Oneida Museum in Green Bay). There is a nice gift shop, unfortunately no traditional Ojibwe music for sale when I was there. Friendly staff.

Lumberjack Shows

Reviewed By Leslie Z

I think I enjoy these shows More, each year I return! The young men who train, and train, and train, and perform in the Lumberjack shows, well, it just blows me Away! It's part history, part entertainment, and very, very much, entertaining and FUN!!! Even the fact that a few lucky Young members of the audience, get to take away a terrific, hand-hewn, right in front of their eyes, practical piney-wood souvenir, is part of the entertainment!

These tools are seriously dangerous, and the remarkable ease with which these young men manipulate and handle them, is greatly Impressive! I am awed by imagining the countless hours of practice and rehearsal these dangerous, And Entertaining, feat do take! Hurray to the Trainers, too!

If you are in the Northwoods, if you are anywhere in 100 miles of Minocqua, WI, The Lumberjack shows are So Worth traveling to! Please, do! You will be thrilled that you did, and so will your entire Family!

Dr. Kate Museum

This museum honors a woman who, among other accomplishments, led the drive to build a hospital for her small community and is remembered as The Angel on Snowshoes for her dedication in reaching patients when the winter roads were impassable. The museum is just around the corner from the "World's Largest Penny."

I heard about the big penny and went to see it. It only takes a few minutes and the plaque tells the story of children raising money to build the local hospital by collecting pennies.

Reviewed By Cathy B - Chicago, Illinois

Our family has been coming to Minocqua Winter Park for years to cross country ski. There are a wide variety of well-groomed cross country ski trails through the beautiful woods of northern WI - perfect for the entire family. Our kids started cross country skiing at age 3. We have both rented and bought cross country ski equipment from the knowledgeable ski shop staff. They have a great kids trade up program that you can buy into that allows you to trade up equipment (skis, boots and poles) as your kids grow. They also have tubing and a great cup of hot chocolate for after skiing.

Can not go by a playground when you got the grandkids along. The equipment was in good shape and the grounds were spotless. They could use indoor restrooms, the outhouse was kind of a downer.

Lake of the Torches Casino

Reviewed By Ryan M - Hobart, Indiana

I have visited this place many times now. As far as buffets go, this one is pretty good. There a good selection and you can't beat the prices. Most of the food items are prepared nicely and your kids will appreciate the dessert selections.

I highly recommend the prime rib and baked chicken. Very good! I have also had the lobster buffet. Insanely good price point considering there were some big dudes putting down 15 to 20 of them. As for me, I ate a couple and it was more than enough.

The only real negative for me is that the entire casino/buffet reeks of cigarette smoke. Normally I would never go to a place that smelled of smoke but I was with some friends the first time I went. As a result, I put up with the smoke to enjoy the occasional buffet visit.
