Lower Wisconsin State Riverway

Location and Directions

The Wisconsin River flows unimpeded by any man-made structures for 92.3 miles from the dam at Prairie du Sac downstream to its mouth at the Mississippi River. Approximately 95,000 acres of land on both sides of the river have been designated as the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway.


Three areas along the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway (Blackhawk Ridge/Wisconsin Heights, the Sauk County Canoe Landing, and Prairie du Bay) are open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
