A Unique Place from All Vantage Points
The Kickapoo Valley Reserve is an 8,600 acre tract of public land located between the villages of La Farge and Ontario in southwestern Wisconsin. Its history, resources, administration, and recreational diversity make it unique - a place like no other.
We invite you to come see for yourself the many wonders of the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Here sandstone outcroppings tower over the Kickapoo River as you paddle its quiet waters, and native plants and animals abound in all seasons. Whether you'd like to join us for a scheduled interpretive hike, adventure into the back country on your own, or simply stop and admire the beauty, the Kickapoo Valley Reserve welcomes you!
The Kickapoo Valley Reserve offers many activities that require registration. If you have questions about registrations, please call 608/625-2960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
