Life is Outdoors in Mercer, Wisconsin

From the vast water wonderland of the 14,300 acre Turtle Flambeau Flowage to the far-reaching wilderness of the 74,500 acres of public forestland, Mercer offers authentic outdoor adventures that you will remember long after you’ve returned home.

Whether you choose to explore on snowmobile, ATV, car, camper, bike, boat, skis, or by foot, you are sure to discover the unending, unique fascination of the Northwoods.

Every season offers a new way to experience our natural beauty. The quiet of winter snow is broken by the sounds of spring peepers that fade as the loon’s calls fill the lakes in the summer. Finally, the woods explode in a riot of color in autumn and then the cycle begins again. That’s the beauty of Mercer.  You can’t go wrong . . .  life is outdoors.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
