There’s something for everyone in Barron County! Thriving small towns and cities, beautiful countryside featuring rolling hills, along with lakes and streams offer plenty of outdoor recreation or a pleasant Sunday driving tour.
Golf, fishing, canoeing, camping, skiing, and over 300 miles of snowmobiling and ATV trails offer endless opportunities to enjoy Wisconsin’s best! The gorgeous Red Cedar River is well-known for its small mouth bass fishing and amazing fall colors. There are many points of interest and activities year-round, both indoor and outdoor. For indoor fun, there are bowling lanes, roller skating rinks, traditional live theatre, movie theaters, and great shopping. Watch for specialty locally grown foods like bison, cheese and produce, even tour a brewery!
