The Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center is a great place to stop on your snowmobiling journey. The Center offers a special area to warm or dry your gloves and hang your helmet while exploring the facility’s displays and climbing the five-story observation tower which showcases the area. The Visitor Center is located off U.S. Highway 2 near the Tri-County Recreational Corridor.

Reminder: There is NO snowmobiling allowed from Ashland to Bad River/Odanah as snowmobiling is not permitted on reservation land.  However, snowmobiling is allowed from Bad River east to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

In addition to snowmobiling, Ashland County offers cross-country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, ice fishing, and sledding. And be sure to check listings on our website,, for information on all of our upcoming outdoor events.
