Thinking of taking a break from fishing on Lake of the Woods, but not sure what else there is to do in the area.  We have complied a list of some of our guests favorite things to do (other than fishing) while visiting the area.

ZIPPEL BAY STATE PARK,
Sandy Beaches

Zippel Bay State Park is located in a jackpine, aspen and birch setting along a two-mile sand beach shoreline on Lake of the Woods.

Snowmobiling- Enjoy hundreds of miles of connected groomed trails. Our trails are true wilderness trails, as there is less than 5 miles of ditch riding on our trail system. Trails go as far up as the Northwest Angle, as far west as Warroad, south to Waskish and as far east as Big Falls and north up to International Falls.

Northwest Angle and Island areas are accessible from Lake of the Woods or the Can-Am Trail by snowmobile. To the east, the Northern Connection hooks up to the groomed Voyageur Trail West and Arrowhead Trail. Our area is unique by having Lake of the Woods and Rainy River, which both provide ample ice riding.
