Located along the beautiful Wisconsin River near the site of Native American encampments, Council Grounds State Park is a favorite for water enthusiasts. The park offers many recreational opportunities including family and group campsites, wooded trails, a beach area and an accessible fishing pier. A boat landing offers access to Lake Alexander and the Wisconsin River.
