County Information:
The first Portage County is at the crossroads of the Wisconsin River Valley and the Central Sands Region. Nestled in the center of the state, its landscape is as diverse as the rich cultural fabric that represents its communities. The Portage County Historical Society operates several museums that are open to the public and visitors may retrace the routes once forged in the past by bike or car on the many trails offered throughout the county. The best views in the County on foot or bike can be appreciated by following the 26 mile Green Circle Trail. Portage County also offers more than 40 lakes, an array of rivers, streams, and flowages for fishing, kayaking, canoeing and swimming.
