The Wisconsin River

Did you know that the Wisconsin River was used for logging back in the 1800’s to transport logs between sawmills? This river, which features tours such as WildThing Jet Boats and Dells Army Ducks has a deep history along the 430 miles between the Northeast Wisconsin/Michigan Border down to where it meets the Mississippi River.

Short History of the Wisconsin River

The Wisconsin River runs through the state of Wisconsin from the Dam on Lac Vieux Desert Lake in the north, down to where it meets the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chein. There are many Wisconsin cities and villages along the river, including Wisconsin Dells. Where the river runs through Wisconsin Dells, you’ll find a scenic gorge made up of beautiful sandstone cliffs towering both sides of the river. This region of the Wisconsin River was originally used for lumbering back in the 1850’s. In 1908, the Kilburn Dam was installed, separating the lower Wisconsin River with the Upper Wisconsin River. Today, there are numerous tours, recreational activities, and boat rides offered on and along both parts of the river.
