Snowmobiles and ATVs

Snowmobiles and All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) are allowed on DNR lands on designated trails only. There are approximately two miles of snowmobile trail and 10 miles of combined snowmobile and ATV trails within the flowage boundary. The ATV trails open the Friday before Memorial Day and close on November 30.

Snowmobiles and ATVs are allowed on the ice but use caution. Before venturing onto the ice, be sure that conditions are safe and be certain you know where you are going. Some areas are hazardous throughout the winter because of water currents and fluctuating water levels which can create uneven and unsafe conditions.

All motorized vehicles, including snowmobiles and ATVs, are prohibited from driving along any shoreline of the flowage whether located above or below the ordinary high-water mark.


Mountain biking is allowed on all interior roads and trails on the Willow Flowage, including the nature trail. Please be courteous and use caution if hikers or hunters are also using the trails.


Horseback riding is prohibited within the Willow Flowage boundary except along public roadways.
