White Mound Wildlife Area

White Mound County Park is a 1,092-acre property located in Sauk County. Find it 15 miles north of Spring Green or 17 south of Reedsburg on Highway 23. From Highway 23, turn west on Highway GG for 1.5 miles. The property is comprised mostly of grasslands, forest and lake.


At almost 1,100 acres, White Mound is Sauk County's Largest park. At the center of the Park lies the 104 acre White Mound Lake. White Mound Park gets it's name from a vanished village located just south of the Park. The Village was named for the white look of the mounds of limestone found in the area. In 1967 the Department conveyed the land to the Sauk County Soil and Water Conservation District. Sauk County agreed to construct, operate and maintain a multiple-use dam and to develop, operate and maintain a public recreation area. Sauk County Parks and Recreation Department [exit DNR] manages the park and camp grounds.
