Crawford County lies among the steeply chiseled bluffs and rugged valleys of the region known as the Driftless Area of southwest Wisconsin. Knit together by a series of meandering rivers and trout-filled tributaries, Crawford County offers the first-time visitor places that soothe the soul, and the seasoned visitor reasons enough to return again and again. Here you will find vistas that inspire your imagination, communities that welcome your coming, and special respites away from the hectic pace of city life.
Rivers, streams, and woodlands present the visitor with an extensive choice of outdoor activities. Among the most popular are boating on the Mississippi, canoeing on the Kickapoo, fishing of all types – including fly fishing and ice fishing, eagle watching along the river, hiking through a county or state park, game hunting, horseback riding, camping, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. If it’s “infotainment” you’re after, then the making of cheese or wine presents a deliciously educational experience.
