The hub of summer activity can be found at Castle Rock and Petenwell County Parks, located on the respective flowages of the Wisconsin River. Both offer camping complete with electrical and water hookups, showers, flush toilets, and dump station. Semi-primitive tent sites are also available. The large, clean beaches, boat landings and visitor hospitality have people coming back year after year. Both Castle Rock and Petenwell Lake can accommodate all types of watercraft, while the river below Castle Rock Dam makes for a most enjoyable canoe trip.
ATV trails open May 20 till November 1 annually. The 2,400 acre site of the Monroe Prairie Recreational Area is located off Badger Avenue between State Road 13 and 15th Avenue in northern Adams County. The site is devoted exclusively to ATV users and features a 25 mile circuit. An expanding network of township roads approved for ATV use allow many ATVers to reach the site by ATV.
Wintertime is snowmobiling season, currently over 230 miles of state funded, well groomed trails twist through forest and farmland. Afterward, cozy accommodations and dining top off a perfect outing.
