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!

Mountain Bike and Horse Trails are CLOSED due to rain. (update 8/29)
The NEW Rockton horse trail connecting Lisney Road to Indian Creek Trail is now OPEN! Riders should follow signage and stay on designated trails. KVR and Ho-Chunk Nation worked together to construct the new trail and rehabilitate the old trail. (update 8/27)
