CROIX NATIONAL SCENIC RIVERWAY Burnett County is home to, not one, but two beautiful and scenic riverways. The St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers are most popular for camping, hiking, trail run- ning, hunting, tubing, canoeing, fishing, paddling and boating. Burnett County is known for its natural spaces, and being home to one of only two National Parks in Wisconsin is certainly a point or pride. The County features 80 miles of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway - more than any other Wisconsin county. In total, the park spans 255 miles and is made up by both the Namekagon and St. Croix Rivers, and as such you’ll experience both quiet, backwater stretches and big-river experiences. Fishing was voted Burnett County’s 2020 Top Silent Sport, which is not surpris- ing considering how prominent it is on these two rivers. On the St. Croix, you’ll find that it’s known for its smallmouth bass fishing along with other species such as walleye, northern pike, muskellunge, sturgeon and catfish; while on the Name- kagon you’ll find exceptional brown and brook trout fishing. These protected waters remain as pristine as ever, thanks to the efforts of the National Park Service and their supporting agencies. Not to be forgotten, however, is the stewardship provided by our river outfitters. With deep-seeded respect for the riverway, these outfitters help travelers navigate the river in a way that is both enjoyable and respectful to one of our greatest natural resources and gifts. These folks will help you plan a leisurely float down the river or an overnight camping adventure on the shores of the Riverway, assisting in everything from kayak and canoe pick-ups and drop offs, equipment rental and advice. The Namekagon River is arguably a world of its own. Dubbed “Wisconsin’s Mov- ing National Park,” this exciting stretch of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway calls to those looking for a more wild experience. The 100-mile river features ex- citing oxbows and stretches of rushing cur- rents, while traveling through both high and low banks. It is well worth the trip for river enthusiasts. Find out more information at namekagonriver.org. Burnett County is home to 52,000 acres of dedicated wildlife areas, the most of any Wisconsin county, and perfect for birding and wildlife viewing. CREX MEADOWS WILDLIFE AREA If the call of the loon, the sight of rare and endangered birds, or just the thought of truly immersing yourself in nature sounds appealing, look no further than our very own wetlands gem, Crex Meadows State Wildlife Area. Located just north of Grantsburg, this 30,000 acre property of restored habitat is home to over 270 species of birds. Its unique topography of marshlands, prairies, flowages and forests create the perfect ecosystem for even the most rare species, including the LeConte’s sparrow. Nature enthusiasts travel from around the world to witness the breathtaking mi- gration of thousands of Sandhill cranes each fall, at what is considered the begin- ning of the Lake Superior Northwoods Region of the Great Wisconsin Birding & Nature Trail. The Crex Meadows Wildlife Education & Visitor Center welcomes guests year- round. Inside you will find interactive exhibits, educational videos and a welcoming staff waiting to answer your questions. Exciting educational programming is of- fered throughout the year, including specialty hikes, wildlife festivals, guided tours and much more. NAMEKAGON BARRENS WILDLIFE AREA The Namekagon Barrens Wildlife Area consists of more than 6,000 acres in northern Burnett and Washburn counties, part of the sands of northwestern Wis- consin. Its two units, managed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, lie on either side of the Namekagon River where it flows toward the St. Croix River. The jack pine-scrub oak barrens habitat is a fire-loving community that is glob- ally rare and rich with diverse prairie flora and fauna. Home to one of the largest remaining populations of sharp-tailed grouse and many other animals and plants, the barrens environment is shaped by its very sandy, droughty soils. Before Euro- pean settlement, much of the area burned frequently. Sometimes it was because of natural causes like lightning and sometimes because Native Americans set fires to attract game animals, stimulate blueberry production, control biting insects and ease cross country travel. The frequent fires kept much of the landscape in a mix- ture of brush, prairie plants and very short oak or pine. Today, the DNR continues the use of controlled burns to maintain the area as part of the mosaic that is the barrens of the northwest sands. It’s a haven for wild- life enthusiasts, photographers, hikers and folks that love wild blueberry picking. AMSTERDAM SLOUGHS & FISH LAKE WILDLIFE AREAS The Amsterdam Sloughs, another 6,000 acre property, features a diverse mix of marshes, flowages, swamp land and forests. Birding enthusiasts will most likely catch glimpses of the great blue herons, osprey and eagles. Containing huge sedge marshes - remnants of the 1,200 year old “Glacial Lake Grantsburg,” the Fish Lake Wildlife Area is 14,000 acres. GOVERNOR KNOWLES STATE FOREST Serving as a resource protection zone for the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, Governor Knowles State Forest is a 190 acre stand of old growth red pines along the St. Croix River. Total coverage area of the Forest is 32,500 acres. The Forest includes many fine trout streams, as well as the St. Croix River, where canoeing is an excellent way to view geologic formations left by two ice ages. Hiking, biking and snowmobile trails are also available. Snowshoe hare, ruffed and sharp-tailed grouse, yellowthroats, eagles, pocket gophers and mink are some of the wildlife you could encounter. Plan to stay at one of the rustic campgrounds. Within the State Forest to the south, you’ll find horseback riding trails and equestrian camp- ground. FORTS FOLLE AVOINE HISTORICAL PARK Whoever says history isn’t fun hasn’t been to Forts Folle Avoine Historical Park. Our 80-acre park sits on the site of two early 1800s fur trade posts, which had sat undisturbed for over 160 years before being discovered. With the careful and dedi- cated support of the Burnett County Historical Society, the trading posts were re- constructed in the 1980s, giving residents and visitors a way to connect to Burnett County’s past. It is the only known instance of two competing trading companies having trading posts in such close proximity to one another. The park offers tours of the site and Woodland Indian Village. While there, enjoy the visitor center with fur trade and Native American exhibits, blacksmith shop, one-room schoolhouse, logging museum, trek the nature trails year round and stop by the gift shop. The Forts’ amphitheater, on the banks of the Yellow River, is a breathtaking backdrop for special events and the facility is available to rent for weddings, reunions and other gatherings. Some of the most fun to be had at The Forts happens during their incredibly popular annual events. From delicious wild rice pancake breakfasts to The Great Folle Avoine Fur Trade Rendezvous, where re-enactors dress traditionally for dem- onstrations throughout the park, The Forts is truly the place to be. BURNETT DAIRY COOPERATIVE Burnett Dairy Cooperative is located just outside Grantsburg, Wisconsin. They are a fully integrated farmer-owned cooperative that handles everything from help- ing its owners care for their crops to providing animal feed, health and nutrition services, to creating award-winning cheese for retail, food service and private label customers. The Burnett Dairy Cheese Store offers more than 100 varieties of fresh, natural, small batch cheeses. Open daily, they offer free cheese samples, free wine sam- pling Friday through Sunday, fresh cheese curds, and a large array of local gourmet products including craft beer and spirits. They are also known for having delicious ice cream and take-n-bake pizzas. The Bistro serves breakfast and lunch offering sandwiches, wraps, pizza, fried cheese curds, soup, salads and desserts making the Burnett Dairy Cheese Store a true destination. Groups welcome, call-ahead or- ders encouraged, indoor and outdoor seating, and ample parking. Visit their General Store, located across the parking lot from the Cheese Store, for all your country needs. Open daily with great personal service, they specialize in convenience, fuel, propane, hardware, farm supplies, hunting and fishing supplies and licenses, lawn and garden, animal feed and supplies, power tools, country gifts, and a Beer Barn featuring a wide variety of craft brews. BREWERY, DISTILLERY & WINERIES Wisconsin and beer go hand-and-hand which is why it was no surprise that Brickfield Brewing has been so successful since it opened in the fall 2018. The fam- ily-friendly brewery overlooks Memory Lake in downtown Grantsburg, and boasts “grain-to-glass” brews that are served in an industrial-chic taproom. They have dif- ferent events going on every week that aim to please fromworkout sessions to arts and crafts sessions to trivia nights. But, Wisconsin isn’t just known for its beer. A thriving and growing wine culture exists here, as well. Due to our one-of-a-kind Midwestern climate, some unique grapes translate into full-flavored Wisconsin wines. Burnett County is home to two wineries serving up some of the best in small-batch wine making. Clover Meadow Winery/White Wolf Distillery’s cozy tasting room is open year-round and comes with many great stories. Tommy’s Too High Wines in Danbury has won multiple accolades for their unique wine flavors and folks who visit rave about the friendly atmosphere. It has been said that it feels like their home-away-from-home. CASINOS The St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin own and operate two of the new- est casinos in the region, right here in Burnett County. Try your luck on the exciting casino floors, but be sure to save (or win) some money to dine in one of their family- friendly dining options. There are incredible meeting and event spaces, indoor and outdoor music venues, modern hotel amenities and even an RV park. Visit their locations in Danbury and Hertel for fun you won’t soon forget. FARM-TO-TABLE AGRITOURISM If you enjoy shaking hands with the local farmers while learning where and how your food is produced, agritourism is the activity for you. Home to many thriving agricultural-based operations, agritourism is the perfect place to visit local farms, ranches and participate in many other farm-related activities. Agriculture is a vital component of the economy, culture and landscape that makes up Burnett County. Aiming to cultivate relationships with those in the community while working to bridge the gap between the producer and consumer in a fun and educational way, agritourism is a great way to have fun while getting educated. SACRED GROVE East of Webster is the hidden, tranquil Sacred Grove - a 60’ labyrinth developed by private residents with a deep spiritual connection to the land it sits on. This quiet space is perfect for introspection and personal growth. An opportunity to be still and meditate while being surrounded by the beauty of nature. The labyrinth is a metaphor for finding one’s own path through transformation and spending time with oneself. Not only is there the labyrinth to walk, visitors can also visit the Athani II retreat cabin meditation garden and paths.
