Growing up in SOUTH WEST WI., we have been spoiled by the many geographical wonders that are all around us. Beautiful sand stone bluffs, meandering valleys, and numerous bodies of water that all put together make up what we call "God's Country) One of the previous articles I touched on few of the bodies of water that lie within SOUTH WEST WI.

To start out, SOUTH WEST WI , has many small rivers, We actually have miles and miles of small rivers that encompass our hidden valleys. If you enjoy fishing, canoeing, and kayaking well then SOUTH WEST WI. has exactly what you are looking for. The most famous canoeing river which is carved from softer rock, offers many miles of undeveloped seclusion. The Kickapoo River is one of the best class 1 canoe rivers  in the mid-west,as well as one of the most photographic. Thirty three miles long, but has over one-hundred miles of linear distance that meanders through SOUTH WEST WI. Other small rivers that run through our SOUTH WEST. are The Grant, The Black, The La Crosse, and the Wisconsin River, known as the busiest river and offers numerous peaceful sand beach islands for all of our enjoyment.

SOUTH WEST WI. known better as the drift-less area, the area that the glaciers never made their way through, allowing our area to be gifted with numerous streams as well as the rivers. SOUTH WEST WI. does offer some fantastic lakes as well. Yellowstone Lake, Lake Arbutus, Lake Neshonic, Lake Pepin, McCartney Lake, and one of the FINEST lakes for diving in the entire mid-west Lake Wazee. Lake Wazee is Wisconsin's deepest lake with depths of over 350 feet. and offering 30 to 40 feet of visibility. So as you can see, when it comes to recreational water SOUTH WEST WI. has a lot of diversity.

Hi Eric.  My husband was born and raised in the Kiel area outside of Sheboygan in upper WI.  The great lake area in Sheboygan is beautiful and much of that area is dairy and farming.  We did spend some time at the Wisconsin Dells and that area is a great resort area with many things for folks to do.

Your pictures and info are beautiful, informative and very inviting.
