Eagle River Ice Palace

Each blustery winter in northern Wisconsin, local firefighters, along with volunteers from the community, donate more than 700 hours constructing the Eagle River Ice Palace. The palace is usually built during the last weekend of December and has become a Eagle River community staple throughout the years.

Volunteers construct the 20-foot-high palace with more than 2,500 sixty-pound blocks of ice cut from local Silver Lake. Within the last several years, colored floodlights have added a beautiful touch to this magnificent Eagle River tradition.

Offering environmental classes since 1944, the Trees for Tomorrow Natural Resource Education Center is a specialty school located in Eagle River. A variety of natural resource workshops and programs are offered on the 30-acre campus, including the annual Forest Fest and Amazing Forest Race events.
