Why We RecommendTimber Ridge has earned every shred of its title as a “resort,” offering endless ways for travelers and locals to make memories in this magical outdoor setting.
Overnight visitors have their pick of more than 200 campsites, as well as cabins and cottages. Kids love the unique activities, from the nighttime glow parades, wagon rides and yes, even the famous Candy Cannon. Plus, there’s a heated pool. Best of all, the resort is open all four seasons, which means travelers can earn their own title as winter camping warriors! Daytime guests love the more than 37 miles of wooded, groomed trails, with an easy access point to the Vasa trail system. The Timber Ridge loops are family friendly and pet frienly, and perfect for running, biking, skiing and snowshoeing.
Owner Gordon Waggoner makes everyone feel like a regular. In return, the community has embraced his resort back, returning yearafteryear for special events such as the Breast Cancer Remembrance Run and the Iceman Cometh Mountain Bike Challenge. And since Northerners know how to have a good time, don’t forget the Suds & Snow microwbrew event held each winter. Picture this winter scene: pig roasts, outdoor snow bars and live music stages in the heart of the big woods.
Bottom line: this resort is the place where memories grow and bucket lists dwindle. And it all can be found within reach of some of the nation’s most famous freshwaster beaches and attractions.
