With Milwaukee and Madison minutes away, cheer on the Milwaukee Brewers, Bucks, or the University of Wisconsin Badgers. Green Bay’s Lambeau Field is just over 90 minutes away. Auto racing is big here. Hunters enjoy the abundance of deer, rabbits, squirrels, foxes, pheasants, geese, other fowl and small game to challenge every hunter.
The county is best known for its natural attractions, including the Horicon Marsh, the largest freshwater cattail marsh in the United States. Known as the “Little Everglades of the North,” Horicon Marsh was formed by a glacial lake and is part of the Ice Age Reserve. Here, visitors will find over 219 species of birds and waterfowl, including magnificent trumpeter swans returning from near extinction and a 100-year absence from the marsh. Other species found in abundance include egrets, herons, cormorants, sandhill cranes, several species of migrating ducks, tundra swans, and Canada Geese by the thousands.
Dodge County lakes and streams offer four seasons of outdoor fun, including water skiing, ice fishing, sailing, boating, canoeing, swimming and duck hunting. There are enough trout, walleyes, muskies, northern, bass, catfish, perch, crappies, bluegills and other panfish in the county’s waters to keep the anglers coming back for more. Boats, canoes, tackle and bait are available from outfitters throughout the county, and public and private boat ramps provide easy access to great fishing adventure.
