Lower Wisconsin State Riverway

Explore the Lower Wisconsin State Riverway, where you can find much to do in beautiful settings close to major population centers. You can fish or hunt, canoe or boat, hike, ride horseback or just enjoy the river scenery on a drive down country roads. The riverway abounds in birds and wildlife, and the history of Wisconsin is written in the bluffs and marshes of the area. There is something for every interest, so take your pick. To really enjoy, try them all!

Two thirds of riverway users can be found on the stretch of river between Prairie du Sac and Spring Green. Those looking for a more private experience will enjoy the middle section from Spring Green to Boscobel, and for the user wishing solitude, the stretch below Boscobel is the most secluded.
