Lower Wisconsin River State Wildlife Area

In the southwestern corner of the state, the Wisconsin River forms the boundary between Grant and Iowa counties on the south and Crawford and Richland counties to the north. The Lower Wisconsin River State Wildlife Area flanks that part of the river in several distinct units. Marsh habitat, river bottom, agricultural fields, and bluffs host an astounding number of bird species from owls to Ruffed Grouse. There are numerous sites clearly identified for public access along Highway 18 in the Bridgeport/Wisconsin River Bottoms area, and east along Cty C to Bergum Bottoms and Woodman. Continue exploring along Hwy 133 east to Boscobel and Muscoda.
