Farragut State Park
Idaho 1 of 6
Take advantage of groomed cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails in the park, plus miles of snowmobile trails just south of the park. Don't forget to pack your sled and hit up the amphitheater bowl where the real action takes place.
Colorado 2 of 6
Eleven Mile's large reservoir, where three Colorado Classic Ice Fishing Tournament events are held, is popular among ice fishermen, but it also provides a great setting for ice skating, ice boating and cross-county skiing.
Lake McConaughy SRA
Nebraska 3 of 6
Get lost in a snowy landscape at Lake McConaughy. This immense outdoor playground, otherwise known as "Big Mac"attracts ice boaters, ice skaters and backpackers throughout the winter.
Peninsula State Park
Wisconsin 4 of 6
Celebrate Wisconsin winters with 16 miles of cross-country skiing trails, six miles of skate skiing trails, five miles of snowshoeing and hiking trails and 17 miles of snowmobile tracks. Not to mention ice fishing and a notoriously steep sledding hill. What more could you want when camping in Wisconsin?
Maine 5 of 6
Forty five miles of carriage roads are perfect for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, and snowmobilers love the 27-mile Park Loop Road. Add ice fishing, winter hiking and even dog-sledding to the list and you have more reasons to visit Acadia National Park in the winter than in the summer.
