Summer Vacations Within Driving Distance
Kid Friendly Camping
Whether your family likes to camp in a tent or an RV, remotely or right by the action, you’ll find a spot to set up camp in Wisconsin. Load up your camping gear and get ready for some fun and don’t forget to pack the marshmallows!
Consider Stoney Creek RV Resort & Campground in Osseo. Here you’ll find a kiddie pool full of fun play structures your toddler is sure to enjoy while older kids can swim in the deeper pool. Family members of all ages can also enjoy playing volleyball, basketball or mini golf! All this within 30 minutes of Eau Claire!
Your family may also enjoy Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Warrens. Being kid-friendly is the signature of the park! They have a full waterpark with slides, wading pools and lazy rivers, swimming pools, golf carts to zip around the campground, children’s crafts and programs, and weekend entertainment such as puppet shows, hypnotists, bands and choirs for young and old. The park also has fishing ponds stocked with pan fish for eager fishermen. This trip is just over an hour from Eau Claire!
Dog Friendly – Door County
As some of you may know, Eau Claire Ford Lincoln & Quick Lane welcomes all well-behaved dogs and their people, too! So, we appreciate other places that welcome man’s best friend!
Door County is about 3.5 hours from Eau Claire and is well known for their wineries and amazing scenery, but many locals also know that Fido is welcome, too! Plan to stay at the Country House Resort in Sister Bay where dogs are welcomed with goody bags that include an all-natural treat, dog towels and a list of local canine hot spots.
Be sure to check out Door County Kayak Tours in Fish Creek where dogs are welcome to join tours through caves, sand dunes and shipwrecks on calm days. Try some of Door County’s famous wine at Simon Creek vineyard and Winery in Jacksonport (dogs welcome outside) or at Lautenbach’s Orchard Country Winery in Fish Creek where dogs are welcome throughout the grounds, especially during apple and cherry picking! Wind down at Northern Sky Theatre or Skyway Drive-In Theatre both in Fish Creek where leashed dogs are welcome to enjoy the performances and shows!
Couple’s Weekend Get Away
Canoe Bay Resort is right along the Chetek Lake just under an hour from Eau Claire.
Parents be aware – no one under 21 is allowed at the resort so plan to take this weekend for yourselves!
