Welcome
to the Kickapoo Valley Reserve
A Unique Place from All Vantage Points

The Kickapoo Valley Reserve is an 8,569 acre tract of land located between the villages of La Farge and Ontario in southwestern Wisconsin. Its history, resources, administration, and recreational diversity make it unique - a place like no other.

We invite you to come see for yourself the many wonders of the Kickapoo Valley Reserve.  Here sandstone outcroppings tower over the Kickapoo River as you paddle its quiet waters, and native plants and animals abound in all seasons.  Whether you'd like to join us for a scheduled interpretive hike, adventure into the back country on your own, or simply stop and admire the beauty, the Kickapoo Valley Reserve welcomes you!

Kickapoo Reserve Management Board Mission Statement:
The land in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve shall be protected, preserved, and enhanced so that its unique environmental, scenic, and cultural features provide opportunities for the use and enjoyment of visitors to the Reserve.  The Reserve will be promoted as a unique example of the Driftless Area Ecoregion and as a destination for low-impact tourism and education.
