The ice on Green Lake in the winter months provides a plethora of activities to outdoor enthusiasts of all types. As soon as the lake freezes, the sails of Green Lake’s iceboaters appear.  The Green Lake Ice Yacht Club hosts iceboating competitions on Green Lake and loves to share the thrill of the sport with newbies.  The ice also brings ice skaters and hockey players to the ice skating rink at the Wharf. Complete with twinkle lights for skating day or night, the Wharf rink has plenty of free skates to borrow if you don’t already have a pair. Beneath the ice a whole new world awaits for anglers–providing quality fishing opportunities for both the novice and experienced. Fishing guide services in the area can get you all set up with the equipment you need for a day of ice fishing in Wisconsin, as well as inform you of the lake’s conditions before you head out.

If you prefer to keep your boots on the land, head to Zobel Park for an exhilarating ride down the hill on a sled or tube. This gently rolling hill draws the young (and young at heart) for a bit of exercise and excitement.

When it is time to slow down, Green Lake offers many opportunities to enjoy winter indoors. Indulge your cravings at the candy shop, and restaurants, or visit the quaint shops downtown.
