Winter Recreation

Richard Bong State Recreation Area

Cross-country skiing, sledding and ice fishing are favorite winter sports. Trails are not groomed for cross-country skiing. Classic skiing is allowed on all trails and trail passes are not required. Snowshoeing is allowed north of Highway BB and off-trail anywhere in the property. Skate skiers may use Wolf Lake. A snowmobile trail crosses part of the property.

The opening and closing of snowmobile trails is at the discretion of each county. Snowmobile trails which cross DNR lands are opened and closed consistent with the surrounding county (or counties). Whenever possible, the opening and closing of snowmobile trails is done on a county-wide basis, however localized conditions may require localized trail opening and closing. It is the responsibility of the county to provide notification about the status of snowmobile trails. The Travel Wisconsin Snow Conditions Report [exit DNR], and local club and county snowmobile web pages [exit DNR] and telephone hotlines will provide the most current information.
