Plan a trip to Columbia County with the help of our 2015 calendar of events

Welcome to Columbia County, located just north of Madison, WI and only a short drive from Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis —featuring an area with an abundance of leisure activities.

We have some of the best fishing, skiing, resorts, parks, golf, galleries and restaurants, it’s no wonder this charming area has become a legendary Midwest destination.

Our beautiful lake communities have been a mecca of Wisconsin travel & tourism, leisure, and hospitality since the 1800s. Each year, visitors seek out the authentic charm of the area and its distinctive resorts and B&Bs—each offering special features, amenities and accommodations for the whole family.

It’s the perfect place to spend a night, a week or a lifetime. Walk or bike the quiet roads, stroll Columbia and Sauk counties eclectic shops and galleries and enjoy live music and great dining at charming area resorts and restaurants.

Our web site,
www.travelcolumbiacounty.net
is here to help you navigate this area rich in leisure and history.
Thank you for visiting!

Lake Wisconsin

Lake Wisconsin and the Wisconsin River are popular with both recreational boaters and anglers. The area has no shortage of resorts, campgrounds and tourist attractions. Camping and picnicking on the many sandbars and islands is very popular on the Wisconsin River around the Interstate 90/94 bridge. http://www.travelwisconsin.com/article/fishing/best-places-to-fish-in-wisconsin-lake-wisconsin
