Fishing | Camping | Biking
While Wisconsin is known as the Dairy State, it’s also a fishing mecca. Between the Mississippi River, its many tributaries, and nearby lakes and ponds, a fishing pole is a great way to enjoy the fresh catch of panfish and other species.
Spots where fish are biting in Wisconsin:
- Lake Winnebago
- Port Washington
Wisconsin has more than 11,000 lakes, and countless bodies of water are located along the route.
You can also enjoy camping, hiking, biking, and other great outdoor fun.
Campgrounds are highly seasonal, with late-spring openings and early-fall closings comprising a common local season.
Gorgeous waterside views:
- Brunet Island State Park
- Turtle-Flambeau Flowage
