Minnetonka Store Spotlight: The Moccasin Shop and Gifts 101 E Wall Street, Eagle River, WI 54521
The Moccasin Shop and Gifts is a family-owned and operated business that has been open for almost 35 years. It is located on the corner of Wall and Railroad Street in the old First National Bank building, the second oldest building in Eagle River, built in 1923.
This past winter the store underwent major renovations, so be sure to stop by this summer if you are in the Eagle River area to see the amazing transformation of the store and say hello to owners Connie and David!

What are a few must see destinations when visiting Eagle River?
Our store is located in the heart of the great Northwoods. We are the number one tourist destination in Northern Wisconsin.
Eagle River is well known for having the largest inland chain of lakes in the world. There are over 30 lakes with great fishing and all types of watercraft recreation. It’s also very common to see a few bald eagles while visiting the area!
Eagle River is also the snowmobile capital of the world and home of the Snowmobile World Championships held here every winter. The endless bicycle and hiking trails turn into great snowmobile trails during winter months.
And an absolute must is our newly remodeled Moccasin Shop and Gift store located in the old First National Bank building!
