Public access lands Parks, forests, wildlife, fisheries, natural areas, trails and flowages
Governor Walker names September 24, 2016 "Public Lands Day". Read proclamation for details.
Wisconsin has a variety of outstanding natural resources, such as rushing trout streams, quiet wetlands, pristine wild rivers, clear lakes, native prairies, vast green forests, Ice Age eskers and picturesque waterfalls. Each year, thousands of people boat, camp, fish, hunt, hike, bike, ski, canoe, sight-see, study nature and pursue other outdoor activities. Our public lands are places where we can get away from daily routines and enjoy the natural beauty Wisconsin has to offer.
