Things to Do at Night in Minocqua

Minocqua is the perfect place to enjoy shopping, eating and recreation throughout the day, but have you ever considered your night options?

Aside from the nightcap to be had at the local pub, there is plenty to do around Minocqua in the wee-hours of the night. In fact, the best things to do in Minocqua happen right here at Birch Trail!

Check out our favorite night activities below that don't even require you to leave the resort!

Evening Stroll

Minocqua is known for its beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and the best place to see them is at Birch Trail Resort! Take an evening stroll around the property or along the trails to catch a glimpse of the vivid colors offered by the setting sun. Grab your camera and be prepared to snap some of the most amazing photos on your stroll.

Watch the Stars

With very little "light pollution" found in the Northwoods, Minocqua is an excellent location to star gaze at night. On a crystal clear night, the sky twinkles with such glory, it's almost unbelievable. Kick back in one of our lounge chairs near the beach, look up and prepare to be amazed at the vast amount of stars in the sky! See if you can find common constellations or even a planet, then watch as it ever so slowly travels across the sky above you.

Relax Next to the Campfire

Staying at the resort isn't complete without a night around the campfire. Whether you choose to make smores, tell ghost stories, or kick back and relax, you are sure to have a wonderful time simply sitting around the fire. As a mode of entertainment before screens and the hustle of modern life, fires have a way of mesmerizing you into complete relaxation. Disconnect and watch the blaze as a great form of nightly entertainment at Birch Trail Resort.

Cuddle Up By the Fireplace

Fires don't have to be enjoyed only outdoors. Four of our 5 cabins have an indoor fireplace that creates the coziest atmosphere, perfect for a night in with your sweetheart. Light up the fire, grab a spot on the couch, and relax to the sounds of the fireplace.

Nighttime Fishing

Some people swear by fishing at night while others claim it's a waste of time. The only way to find out is by doing it yourself! Enjoy fishing beachside by the light of the moon. Amber Lake, our semi-private lake (previously known as Squaw Lake) offers a wide variety of fish species for your fishing entertainment. Who knows, maybe night fishing is your lucky charm!
