With over 250 square miles of all-season vacationland, the lands and waters in the Silver Cliff area offere something special to those who visit this area. We invite you and your family to come and enjoy our extensive recreational facilities.

The waters in this area offer many unique and diverse activities. We have whitewater rafting and kayaking on the upper stretch of the Peshtigo River, the best in the Midwest. There are also a record number of waterfalls in Marinette County, and many are easily accessable for viewing.

Fishing is also a major area activity. We are just minutes away from High Falls and Caldron Falls Flowages, with everything from small pan fish to trophy size muskies. In addition, there are countless smaller lakes, rivers and streams offering a full range of fishing experiences. Marinette County has more class A trout streams than anywhere else in the state of Wisconsin. In the winter, ice fishing is enjoyed by many, with a number of popular fishing derbies on local lakes throughout the season.
The lands in this area are special too. There are many acres of Marinette County Forest land open to the public as well as 22 County Parks. Also close by are the Governor Thompson State Park, the Peshtigo River State Forest, and the Nicolet National Forest in neighboring Oconto County. These rustic, wilderness areas offer abundant wildlife and natural beauty and a variety of hiking, biking and cross country ski trails available for your use. The ATV Trail comes right to our door and connects you to the trails in northern Marinette County and beyond to the trail systems in Oconto County and the UP of Michigan.

Thousands of acres of public hunting grounds attract growing numbers of hunters each year. Whether you hunt with rifle, shotgun or bow, you owe it to yourself to at least one season of hunting in the Silver Cliff area.

For the winter sports enthusiast, we are right on the Iron Snowshoe Snowmobile Trails, where Corridor 7 heads into the Caldron Falls and High Falls Flowage area, and there is gas with 24 hour credit card pumps right down the road. You can ride one way, and go for the action and excitement of the flowages area, or got the other way for a more remote ride through thousands of acres of county land and the Nicolet National Forest.

Also enjoyed in the winter is ice fishing on the Flowages as well as many nearby lakes. Fishing Derbys and Snowmobile Radar Runs are held in the area throughout the season.
