Kickapoo Bottoms

The Kickapoo Bottoms Property is an 85-acre tract of land along the Kickapoo River and adjacent to the Crawford County Fairgrounds.  According to the Wisconsin Land Legacy Report, the Kickapoo River is described as “one of the most diverse assemblages of natural communities in the state,” and is noted to support breeding populations of birds and to provide habitat for many rare species of plants and animals. Rare species on the Kickapoo Bottoms property include the state threatened snowy campion wildflower that can be found blooming in June and July.

This Property includes 4700 feet of frontage on the Kickapoo River and is open to the public for hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking, birding and snowshoeing and can provide environmental education to area school groups. This land was purchased with funds from the State of Wisconsin’s Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program.

From  La Crosse, WI, head south on 35 passed Ferryville.  Turn left onto 171 towards Gays Mills.  In Gays Mills turn right onto 131 towards the Crawford Co. Fairgrounds.  Turn right into the fairgrounds and continue straight. Parking is on the right near the corral.
