Sauk Prairie State Recreation Area

The Sauk Prairie State Recreation Area, located in southeastern Sauk County, consists of a portion of the decommissioned Badger Army Ammunition Plant.

Visitors may hunt, trap, hike, bird watch, pick mushrooms and berries, study nature, take photographs and other traditional outdoor activities. You may also drive, bike or ride horses on the roads within the complex that are open. Roads are in variable condition; some have many ruts and potholes.

The property is still undergoing demolition and clean-up work. Please be aware of closed areas and potential hazards from construction debris and demolished structures.

The recreation area is open year-round from one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset. Roads are not plowed during winter.
