Gays Mills is renowned for its apple orchards which flourish in the temperate valley of the Kickapoo. When the white and pink blossoms bloom in the spring or the tasty red apples are ready for picking in the fall, visitors flock here for local festivals that celebrate all things apple! Paddlers enjoy canoeing on the meandering Kickapoo River, whose Native Algonquin name means "crooked river."
