June 8, 2020

Tip #1: Follow public health guidelines

Gill the musky

 

 

 

 

 

  • Practice musky distancing. Gill (the musky statue outside the chamber building) is 8 feet tall—stay at least one Gill’s length away from others when you’re in public!
  • Some businesses require face masks, while others do not. We do appreciate your wearing one.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Use hand sanitizer often.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.
  • Follow the other guidelines from Vilas County Public Health.

Tip #2: Be patient

  • Some businesses have changed their services or capacity, but they’re still working hard to keep everyone safe and healthy, so bear with them as they work through their new routines. Today’s plan may change tomorrow, so be flexible as businesses work to adapt to new information.
  • Check with businesses to verify their hours/offerings.
  • Make a plan B or plan C if your first choice is closed or too busy… don’t worry, we’ve got lots to do in Boulder Junction!

Tip #3: Support your favorite businesses

  • Shops and restaurants are open for business, though some might have made changes to how they operate. Consider calling ahead for a sit-down reservation at your favorite eatery or try a carryout meal. Places like Coontail Market even offer curbside pickup of groceries.
  • Here’s a list of carryout options in Boulder Junction.

Tip #4: Make a reservation

  • Boulder Junction’s motels, resorts, cabins, vacation homes and private campgrounds are accepting reservations for this summer and beyond. These businesses have visitors’ health and well-being top of mind; please contact specific lodging properties with questions on availability.
  • Lodging info can be found here.

Tip #5: Get outside

  • All your favorite summer activities in Boulder Junction are still available to you—biking, fishing, hiking, paddling, boating and more.
  • Don’t forget to practice social distancing measures at public areas like boat launches or trailheads.
  • Your trip to Boulder Junction gives you access to so many outdoor resources–explore a new trail, lake or scenic drive for new outdoor adventures.
