A Unique Place from All Vantage Points
The Kickapoo Valley Reserve is an 8,600 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!

Equestrian and mountain bike trails are OPEN.

REMINDER: The KVR is open to public hunting.  Hunters - know your target and what's beyond as trails and campsites are located throughout the property. ALWAYS respect the boundaries with private land.  FAQ/Information sheets are available at the Visitor Center.
