2017 Winter weekends at onaway

Beat the winter blues with a trip to Onaway in 2017! All winter weekends share common activities that can only be enjoyed during Wisconsin winters including ice fishing, ice bowling, broomball, skating, snowshoeing, sledding, cross-country skiing, and fort building. Onaway Island provides comfortable accommodations in the year-round facilities of Headquarters and the Mess Hall. Don’t miss the chance to see Onaway in all its wintertime splendor.
