FORT

RESTORE AND RECREATE

Enjoy the Glacial River Bike Trail on a scenic

converted rail bed. The downtown portion connects

to the city’s riverwalk with access to quaint shops

and restaurants. Cycle over to 2 Rivers Bicycle and

Outdoor where you can rent canoes and kayaks

and navigate the Bark and Rock Rivers; both of

which lead to Lake Koshkonong, where fishing

and boating opportunities abound. Whether your

passion is fishing, hunting, camping, hiking, or just

appreciating nature, visit TPF Outdoors for your

outdoor needs. Stop by the historic Koshkonong

Mounds Country Club (see pg 63), where golfers

can enjoy lake views and a challenging 18-hole

course situated near native effigy mounds.

Skydiving, miniature golf, bowling, fat bike riding,

snowmobiling, skiing and skating are available to

adventurers and explorers of all levels.

TALENT AND TUNES

Experience a top Wisconsin attraction and a

taste of Broadway at The Fireside Dinner Theatre

(see pg 1), where you’ll also get a mouth-watering

meal and the opportunity to shop one-of-a-kind gift

shops. If live music is your forte, plan to attend our

summer concerts in the park, Rhythm on the River

music festival August 22nd, or dine at Cafe Carpe,

8 JEFFERSON COUNTY: THE OFFICIAL GUIDE 2020-21

Mr. Brew’s Taphouse, Fort 88, Island Bar and Grill,

Sunset Bar and Grill, Brock’s River Walk Tavern

and Grill (see pg 10) or Riverstone Premier Event

Center which all feature regional and national talent.

FEASTS AND FINDS

Discover distinctive shops and restaurants, score

a bargain at the Nasco Retail Store and stock up

on locally-made meat products and fresh brats at

Jones Market (see pg 11). Visit the Fort Farmer’s

Market for home-grown produce, baked goods

and handmade crafts every Saturday, May through

October (see pg 65). Stop by Rock River Wellness

(see pg 47) along the Glacial River Bike Trail for an

organic smoothie, while shopping their extensive

collection of vitamins, supplements, and other

health-related products. Then venture on to our

“feasting” establishments including an authentic

Italian restaurant, a unique smokehouse, a traditional

supper club, or a hometown ice cream shop.

PRESERVATION AND PROGRESS

Fort Atkinson showcases a rich heritage through

carefully-preserved landmarks and traditions. A

must-see is the Hoard Historical Museum and

National Dairy Shrine Museum (see pg 74), where

visitors can meet a young soldier named Abraham


ATKINSON

From Broadway entertainment and historic lures to scenic

recreation and inviting shops, Fort Atkinson offers the perfect

mix of big city amenities and small-town charm.

Lincoln and learn about his role in the 1832 Black

Hawk War, or discover who was responsible for

making Wisconsin known as “The Dairy State.” On

Memorial Day weekend, experience what life was

like in the 1800’s at the annual Fort Koshkonong

Rendezvous, May 23-24, at Rock River Park. This

fur trading re-enactment is complete with authentic

costumes, tools, food and games. Go even further

back in time with a walk through Indian Mounds

Park, or get a bird’s-eye view of the city from the

top of the historic water tower.

FAMILY FRIENDLY

As a big little city, Fort Atkinson caters to families

in every stage. The great outdoors beckon on lakes,

rivers, trails and parks. Music, entertainment and

shopping are convenient and affordable. Bring

your family and explore. Bond with your kids over

campfires and sing-alongs at Jellystone Park (see

Inside Back Cover), recall the simple pleasure of a

hot dog and ice cold soda at a Generals baseball

game, take the slippery slide at the Family Aquatic

Center, pick your perfect pumpkin at Busy Barns

Adventure Farm (see pg 66), cycle the Glacial River

Bike Trail in autumn, and snow shoe, ice skate or

cross-country ski at Haumerson’s Pond in winter.

Visit our website for detailed information on things

to do and places to see, or feel free to give us a call

and we’ll help arrange a fun-filled itinerary.

AN INVITATION

Small towns aren’t always small places. A full

calendar of events, diverse lodging options, clean

and safe parks, and close collaboration between

business, health care, education and city services

have resulted in a modern day Mayberry for those

of us who love where we live. Fort Atkinson is

small-town living at its best, but don’t take our

word for it. See for yourself. Whether you’re

planning a weekend visit or considering relocation,

we invite you to experience some of what makes

Fort Atkinson such a treasure. Welcome. We hope

you’ll stay for a while, or maybe longer.

at the Jefferson Family Aquatic Center or hit a few

rounds of golf at the Jefferson Golf Course (see

pg 63) - Wisconsin’s ONLY 13-hole golf course! If

you’re more into alley-oops and aciddrops, meet

up at Riverfront Skate Park for some gnarly tricks.

Pick up fall favorites in town or enjoy a drive in

the country for apple and pumpkin picking...and

cider donuts! Once the snow flies, make a day of

sledding and ice skating at the Jefferson Outdoor

LAKE

DISCOVER LAKE MILLS

Lake Mills is blessed with an abundance of

rich history, natural beauty and small-town charm.

Enjoy a day on the lake or a scenic bike ride. Go

birding or delve into history. Find your next antique

treasure or a sip locally brewed beer. No matter

your choice, there’s something for everyone!

Located right off 1-94 at exit 259, visiting

is incredibly convenient. Lake Mills is ideally

situated between Madison and Milwaukee, just 25

miles east and 55 miles west respectfully. In fact,

Highway 89 is our Main Street!

HISTORY & LEGENDS

Lake Mills’ legendary status is rooted in ancient

civilization lore, specifically mysterious Rock

Lake. Numerous tales have been told of the stone

structures reportedly found on the bottom of the

lake. One claims that after suffering a dreadful

drought, natives sought to appease the gods by

building sacrificial pyramids. Answering their prayers,

the gods covered the pyramids with water creating

the beautiful lake the natives called Tyranena,

meaning ‘Sparkling Waters.’ Hence, why the name

Tyranena crops up all throughout Lake Mills.

A large part of the legends come from Lake

Mills’ proximity to Aztalan State Park. Just

east of Lake Mills lies one of Wisconsin’s most

important archaeological sites. Aztalan State

Park showcases an ancient Middle-Mississippian

village that thrived between 1000 and 1300 A.D.

The people who settled Aztalan built large, flattopped

pyramidal mounds and a stockage around

their village.

Just north of the State Park is the Aztalan

Museum, operated by the Lake Mills-Aztalan

Historical Society. The site features two pioneer

churches, 19th century structures and displays

containing historic items dating back to 1000 A.D.

RECREATION

Legends and lore aside, Rock Lake is a crystal

clear, 1,371-acre recreational oasis beckoning

outdoor enthusiasts to its cool waters and treelined

shores. The lake is surrounded by parks,

beaches and boat launches providing easy lake

access and opportunities for fishing, swimming,

canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing and boating.

Lake Mills also has easy access to the

47-mile Glacial Drumlin Trail praised by hikers

and bicyclists alike. The trail follows the old

Chicago and Northwest railway. A portion of the

trail passes through one of Lake Mills’ ecological

treasures and birding hot spot—the Zeloski Marsh

22 JEFFERSON COUNTY: THE OFFICIAL GUIDE 2020-21


MILLS

Discover what the ancients knew—Lake Mills

is a special place. Leave your everyday cares

behind and enjoy the natural beauty, friendly

people, fabulous food and unique shops.

unit within the Lake Mills Wildlife Area. Another

wonderful birding spot is Madison Audubon’s

Faville Grove Sanctuary.

SHOPPING AND DINING

Lake Mills is a designated Main Street Program

Community which has guided the renaissance of

downtown Lake Mills since 2006. The heart of

downtown is Commons Park which is surrounded

by charming 19th century buildings that house

exceptional shops and restaurants.

Dining in Lake Mills offers a number of culinary

experiences, from all-American eats like sliders

and hot dogs to traditional Wisconsin fish fries.

For those who crave ethnic fare, we have Creole,

Italian, Chinese, and Mexican. You’ll find places to

curb your sweet tooth too—custard, chocolate and

more. To quench your thirst, Lake Mills has two

breweries and a winery!

Lake Mills is filled with unique shopping

opportunities. Here you can find the perfect trinket

gift, a vintage gem or your new favorite piece of

jewelry. Additionally, we are proud to have several

nationally recognized businesses headquarter in

Lake Mills—Ephraim Pottery, Tyranena Brewing

Co., James J. Chocolate and Lewis Station Winery.

(see pgs 67-69)

EVENTS

Many wonderful events are held in Lake Mills

throughout the year. Our Farmers Market runs

every Wednesday from May-October. Vintage

Markets pop up at varying times throughout

the year. Church Street fills with Cars & Coffee

the first Sunday of the month May-October.

Summer also brings Town and Country Days in

June and Lake Mills Art Festival in July. As the

leaves change, we host Fall Festival of Color in

October. The fun continues through the winter as

we celebrate the holidays with Classic Christmas

and embrace the cold with the Knickerbocker Ice

Festival the first weekend in February.

Trail of Many Terrains in the Natureland Park, Whitewater (photo by Katy Daixon Wimer)

GLACIAL RIVER BIKE TRAIL

The 31.5 mile Glacial River Bike Trail extends

the full length (North to South) of Jefferson

County. The trail extends seamlessly beyond

Jefferson County into Rock and Dodge Counties

offering users even more distance, scenery and

outdoor recreational opportunity. The trail is

connected by an on-road portion of the Wild Goose

Trail in Dodge County. A portion of the Glacial

River Trail from downtown Fort Atkinson to the

Jefferson/Rock County line is set on a former rail

bed that features a covered bridge. The majority

provides an asphalt paved, separated grade

trail. It is a mix of trail and on-road connections

from Fort Atkinson. This spectacular attraction

features an archway, bronze sculptures, rest areas

and fountains - making it a relaxing and scenic

adventure.

THE GLACIAL HERITAGE

AREA (GHA)

The GHA is a network of parks, wildlife

and natural areas, historic and cultural sites,

waterways and preserves – all connected by trails

and waterways. It’s located primarily in Jefferson

County with some portions in Rock, Dodge,

and Dane counties and supports high-quality

50 JEFFERSON COUNTY: THE OFFICIAL GUIDE 2020-21

grasslands, wetlands and forests, interspersed

with productive agricultural land. The mission

is to connect more people to the land through

conservation parks, linking trails, wildlife areas and

river-based recreation. glacialheritagearea.org.

GLACIAL DRUMLIN STATE TRAIL

Developed in 1986, the trail starts in Cottage

Grove (just east of Madison) and heads east for

52 miles where it connects with other trails in the

Fox River Sanctuary in Waukesha. The trail is open

to cyclists, walkers, joggers, roller bladers and

snowmobiles. A pass is required before using the

trail and is valid on all other state trails. Annual fee:

$25; daily fee: $5. No pass is required for hikers or

children under 16. glacialdrumlin.com.

CAMROCK PARK

Located between Rockdale and Cambridge

along the Koshkonong Creek, this 422-acre park

has three areas with shelter facilities and play

areas. It’s suitable for hiking, cross-country skiing

and some of the best mountain biking in the

area. The park can be reached via several access

points with connector trails to all parks, access

points located trailhead adjacent to Westside

Park on Water Street in downtown Cambridge,


County Hwy B and Highland Drive in the village

of Rockdale.

THE ROCK RIVER TRAIL

The Rock River Trail runs along the Rock River

from the headwaters in Fond du Lac County, to

the Mississippi River at Rock Island in Illinois.

Following on its 2013 designation as a National

Water Trails System by the Secretary of the US

Dept. of the Interior, the 320-mile Water Trail

began an effort to connect the many communities

together through a joint initiative. There has been

a great deal of cooperation between both states

as it crosses 11 counties and 37 municipalities.

The Rock River Water Trail begins at two

trailheads in the Wisconsin headwaters:

Waupun County Park on the South Branch of

the river in Waupun and Rivers Edge Park on

the East Branch in Theresa. It meanders down

a gentle gradient to safely carry the water

traveler and recreational enthusiast alike past

picturesque rural and scenic landscapes,

natural wilderness areas and vibrant urban

riverfronts. Not only does it provide recreational

activities, but it also gives the recreationalist

access to various retail, restaurants and events

along its river banks.

There are a plethora of routes within the river

corridor to provide access for all to the natural

resources, recreational opportunities, scenic

beauty and historic and cultural assets of the

Rock River Valley. We invite you to paddle it,

drive it, bike it, hike it, taste it (chocolate tour),

appreciate it (art tour), ride it (horse trails) or fly

it. There’s virtually something for everyone!

For more information on the trail itself, it’s

history and how to support their efforts, visit their

website at rockrivertrail.com.

EMMA CARLIN TRAIL

The trail is comprised of three loops, with

difficult sections covering nearly 40 miles. The

west end of the Green Loop has a particularly

tough uphill grind. For a total challenge, take the

formidable Connector Trail south to the John Muir

Trail (Palmyra).

Refer to the parks grid on pages 52-55 for park

specific amenities and services.

GOLF COURSESSpring Creek, Whitewater

Something “Fore” everyone! The collection of golf clubs and golf courses within Jefferson County

is nothing short of spectacular. Sprinkled throughout the county you will find a multitude of golfing

opportunities. The County boasts a variety of limited access private clubs, daily fee courses, and

executive par three award winning courses recognized by Golf Digest and Golf Range Magazine.

In the heart of the county, you’ll find Jefferson Golf Course - where you can play 9, 13 or 18 holes. The

course features all bent grass fairways, tees and greens on beautiful rolling terrain with water features.

The oldest, most historic golf club in Jefferson County is Koshkonong Mounds Country Club in Fort

Atkinson, which was established in 1924 and originally built amongst the prehistoric earthwork mounds.

Many, if not all, of these earthwork mounds are still visually present today. KMCC is a limited access

private club named 4 stars on Golf Digest “Best Places to Play”.

Travel a few miles East to Whitewater where you will find two more fabulous courses. Spring Creek

Golf Course offers a full length championship 9 hole layout with impeccable conditions. Triple tee

placements allows golfers to play to their capabilities. The Willow Brook Golf Course is nestled on

the Southwest side of Whitewater and boasts a beautiful Par 36 9-hole golf course with an adjoining

clubhouse and banquet facility. Once a private club, Willow Brook is open to the public!

THE ARTS

Midwest Fire Fest, Cambridge

The earliest and most unique “art” forms in our area, one could argue, are the earthen Indian effigy

mounds which continue to attract thousands of viewers each year at Aztalan State Park. Poet Lorine

Niedecker (1903-1970) is another Jefferson County arts icon whose work is featured in two downtown

Fort Atkinson murals. The Cambridge pottery boom in the 1980’s led our many studio potters to call

Jefferson County home. Today, our close-knit arts community offers relaxing studio tours and exciting

festivals annually that will “blow your mind”. Experience year-round live entertainment at The Fireside

Dinner Theatre (one of the Midwest’s most popular entertainment destinations, see pg 1), the Council

for the Performing Arts, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Greenhill Center of the Arts (see

below) which features Young Auditorium, Theatre/Dance Department, Music Department and Crossman

Gallery events, and more (see our Performing Arts list to the right). Additionally, our unique shops offer

items made by our local artists and host Pop-Up galleries.

The Clay Collective Spring Pottery Tour kicks off in May when local and guest potters throughout

the county open their studios to the public for a free self-guided driving tour. Enjoy the Jefferson Plein

Air Painting event in June where you can watch artists as they capture the beauty and character of

the Jefferson Area on canvas. You could pick any day of the week to enjoy an outdoor community

concert, including Tyranena Brewery’s Brew with a View nights in Lake Mills’ Korth Park - reminiscent

of a traditional German biergarten, but with a modern twist. Fort Atkinson also hosts free concerts in

Greenhill Center of the Arts

DISCOVER THE HISTORY OF JEFFERSON COUNTY

Visit our historic neighborhoods or stop at a local museum and hear interesting stories about

the founders and first settlers of our County. One of the top historical sites in the state is located in

Jefferson County. Aztalan State Park contains ruins of an ancient Native American village established

in 1050 AD. The archaeological site has been a National Historic Landmark since 1964 and is a must

see along with the Aztalan Museum site, located next to the State Park, which includes a museum

housed in the Baptist Church and 7 additional pioneer buildings.

The Octagon House Museum in Watertown was one of the largest homes built prior to the Civil War

in Wisconsin. Today, it is maintained as a public museum and the museum grounds are home to the

first Kindergarten in America, a restored pioneer barn and a tour center.

Discover area local history and an impressive collection of artifacts at the Hoard Historical

Museum in Fort Atkinson. The Museum is also home the collection of Lorine Niedecker, an

internationally recognized poet.
