Adams County

If you are a new visitor to our county Welcome! Adams County is a well-kept secret, but unlike the better known (and usually crowded) tourist attractions, we’re open twenty-four hours. Two of the best-kept secrets in Wisconsin are Petenwell and Castle Rock Lakes, the second and fourth largest inland lakes in the state, together covering over sixty square miles. Whatever your passion is, adventure is waiting for you – in all seasons! While the area is quite rural and unspoiled in flavor, its amenities are quite cosmopolitan. It has excellent restaurants, a community theatre, an 18-hole, par 72 golf course (originally rated among the top 75 public courses in the country) and a choice of two casinos within 30-40 minutes driving time.

We who live in Adams County have long thought it is one of the better places in the entire state of Wisconsin to live, work, and play. Ours is a community with a healthy atmosphere in which business and agriculture can thrive, and families raise their children. Though we don’t like to brag, Adams County has an excellent school system, a burgeoning downtown district, and a modern, fully-equipped hospital. We also enjoy a thriving cultural community of the arts and theater, and have a first-rate county library. And, if those weren’t enough to hold us here, we are blessed with an abundance of beautiful scenery and clear, pure water.
