Tourism Vital to Eagle River Economy

Whether they come to enjoy the lakes in the summer or the snowmobiling in the winter, Eagle River is a town that is always full of tourists.

The area is known throughout the Midwest as a summer fun destination.

That is why the Eagle river Area Chamber of Commerce works hard throughout the year to spread the word about this Northwoods destination.

They say that ensuring tourism remains a vital part of the economy is a major factor in local businesses success.

"We totally depend on the visitor to come to Eagle River. They are what make Eagle River so special. The business community here has all the opportunities available to a visitor. So, when they arrive in Eagle River there is always something for everyone to participate in." says Kim Emmerson of the Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce.

Having winter events like snowmobiling is something that helps keep the tourism industry busy in Eagle River year round.
