Wild Mountain/Taylors Falls Recreation offers a tradition of year round outdoor family fun nestled in the scenic St Croix Valley near the historic river town of Taylors Falls.

Skiers and Snowboarders of all ages and abilities come to enjoy the winter playground with its mix of terrain from novice to expert. With 26 trails spread over 100 acres, including four terrain parks and a novice discovery area, Wild Mountain is a great place for families and friends to enjoy the season outdoors. The Snowsports School offers a variety of lessons and programs, suitable for first timers to experts. State of the art snowmaking and daily grooming ensures the best possible conditions – even if there is no snow in your backyard. Wild Mountain has a long tradition of being the first area to open in the Midwest each year.

Wild Chutes is fun for snow tubers of all ages – experience not required! Ride the conveyor lift with your tube to the top of the hill, choose one of the available chutes and experience the exhilaration of sliding down a specially groomed tubing chute. Once you slow to a stop at the bottom it’s time to grab your tube and ride the conveyor back to the top.

During the warmer months, family fun fills the day at Wild Mountain's outdoor waterpark. Water activities include four waterslides, a lazy river and Wild Adventure Island. Also at the park you’ll find Alpine Slides, Formula K Go-Karts and Junior Go-Karts for the youngest drivers. Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tours offer a variety of ways to enjoy the scenic beauty of the St. Croix River: climb aboard for a narrated tour starting in the historic Dalles. Taylors Falls Canoe and Kayak Rental has a long history on the river. The company began renting canoes and boats in 1910. Although much has changed in the surrounding area in the century of operation, the river itself remains relatively unchanged. You can almost feel the history as you paddle quietly downstream.

With all the activities and events, you will want to stay nearby at Wildwood Campground and RV Park.
