For those who enjoy the water, a recreation area on the banks of the Wisconsin River offers picnic tables, fishing, and access to the river by an asphalt landing. The area also has restrooms, a telephone, and ample parking. Some of the best canoeing, kayaking, tubing, and fishing in the state are here on the lower Wisconsin River. The scenic bluffs, woodland, and sand beaches make for a memorable day on the river.
