Green Lake Snowmobile Club - click to enlarge

On January 13th 1975, twenty five snowmobile enthusiasts gathered together with the idea in mind of forming a snowmobile club for the area. Since 1975 we have been an active club and will be enjoying our 40 year in 2015. The Green Lake Snowmobile clubhouse came about due to the hard work of previous members who have built, added to and maintained the building for everyone in the community to enjoy. The newest construction contains indoor toilets a very welcome addition. We are very fortunate to have a club house that is used for club meeting, dinners, club and community events. The club house can also be rented for functions from weddings to birthday parties to whatever else. Green Lake Snowmobile Club maintains approximately 80 miles of snowmobile trails which are used all year round by quads, horse back riders, hikers etc.
