For Wisconsin's best fishing, hiking, golfing, and festivals, look no further than Elkhart Lake. Book your choice of wooded or waterfront Elkhart Lake vacation homes, and look forward to the perfect lakeside getaway.
In Elkhart Lake, summers tend to be mild, while winters are cold and snowy. In July, temperatures top out in the low 80s. In January, temperatures often drop to 10 degrees. During the winter, Elkhart Lake also receives an average of more than 50 inches of snow.
To get to Elkhart Lake from afar, fly into Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport, about 70 miles south of the area, or into Green Bay's Austin Straubel International Airport, about 60 miles north of Elkhart Lake. Because most Elkhart Lake vacation homes are fairly rural, you'll want to drive to area attractions.
Things to do
No matter if you're a golf champion, a hiking enthusiast, or a water sports fan, you'll find plenty to keep you entertained in Elkhart Lake. Book a tee time at the Quit Qui Oc Golf Club, and get ready to spend a day on the course's picturesque, rolling green hills. Perfect your game with a lesson from a PGA professional, and rent a full set of clubs if you've left yours at home.
Get out and enjoy Elkhart Lake's fresh air with a hike through one of the area's numerous scenic trails. The 30-mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail will take you through parks, farmland, and wilderness, tracing the path of the ancient Ice Age. Spend an afternoon or a whole day in the Kettle Moraine State Forest Northern Unit, which includes glacial features, several miles of trails, and ample plant life and wildlife. The forest even offers year-round attractions, with boating and fishing in the summer and cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter.
If you'd rather not venture too far, you'll find several smaller parks around the lake itself. Broughton Marsh Park spans 30 acres and includes hunting and fishing areas, as well as snowmobile trails and a year-round, full-service restaurant. In the center of downtown, Elkhart Village Square Park offers a playground, a sandbox, and shady spots for a picnic lunch. In the summer, Fireman's Park and Beach is the place to be, with plenty of swimming spots, a sandy beach, a volleyball court, and a concession stand.
For history buffs in your family, check out the Elkhart Lake Depot Museum. It features original railroad station houses and furnishings from more than a century ago. If you prefer more action than a museum, head to Road America. This year-round venue hosts some of the most popular events in motorsports and features every type of motor vehicle from sprint cars to motorcycles.
Celebrate the winter season at February's annual Schnee Days, with snowshoeing, ice skating, dog sledding, and a chili cook-off. Kick off the spring season with the annual Jazz on the Vine event. Held at the Osthoff Resort, this musical weekend features some of the world's best jazz musicians, accompanied by dozens of domestic and international wine tastings. July boasts The Hawk with Brian Redman, the largest outdoor gathering for vintage racing in the United States, and the Annual Midwest Acoustic Music Fest. In August, don't miss Elkhart Lake's Downtown Night, which includes a Taste of Elkhart Lake, live music, and family-friendly activities. The Wade House hosts the largest Civil War re-enactment in Wisconsin in September, and is worth attending if you’re in the area.
Whether you'd rather spend your time on the water, wandering in the woods, or on the golf course, Elkhart Lake is the ideal Wisconsin vacation destination. Stay at one of the many rustic or modern Elkhart Lake vacation homes, and you might never want to leave this lakeside locale.
