“Reasonable snowmobile rental rates, good service, friendly staff”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We rented Polaris 600 Trail snowmobiles from Minocqua Sports Rental for 2 days in February. Their rates were reasonable (minus the "fuel charge"), considering they're located in a popular tourist area of Wisconsin. The staff were friendly and both sleds were in good working order. The shop was located right across from the trail, so getting to and from the shop was a breeze....

The only real complaint we had was the increasingly popular practice of charging a "fuel charge", which amounted to about $50, in addition to the regular 2 day rental fee (you return the sled "empty", but that never happens, unless you don't mind the risk of running dry on the trail somewhere--thus the shop always comes out ahead on this deal).... I know gas prices are very high these days, but that's the new normal; and i realize that equipment rental places sometimes get burned by people not topping off their tanks...... But, as a customer who always tops off the gas tank before returning a rental vehicle, i feel like i'm being punished for the few who don't do the right thing. That said, if you rent for only 1 day, the overall rental is pricey when you factor in the fuel charge, but if you rent for multiple days, the cost is spread out, so it's not so bad.

So, overall, i recommend Minocqua Sport Rental, but for multiple days---i just can't get over that fuel charge!
