About Menominee County

Ice Sailing - Photo Credit: Gretchen Dorian

Launch your boat in the Menominee River or Green Bay and enjoy some of the area’s best boating, fishing, water skiing … whatever your passion. Whitewater raft, canoe or swim in the river. Fish the bay or river year-round. Or just relax and soak up some sun on one of our Lake Michigan beaches.

Visit in winter to witness the excitement of ice boating as sailboats fitted with runners whiz across the ice in the bay. You can also snowmobile, snowshoe or cross-country ski.

Head to downtown Menominee and stroll the historic district and waterfront. Bring a lunch and relax in Great Lakes Memorial Marina Park, which features a beautiful marina and events such as auto shows, Thursday-night summer concerts on Stephenson Island and the four day Waterfront Festival in early August. Shop downtown art galleries for stained glass, jewelry and garden art. Just across the Menominee River sits Marinette, Wisconsin, with its quaint downtown and more shopping. For even more to see and do, the city of Green Bay is only an hour away.

Head up to Harris and try your luck at the luxurious Island Resort & Casino. While you’re there, get in a round at the championship-caliber Sweetgrass Golf Club.
