Cranberry Country

Wisconsin Rapids

The Wisconsin Rapids Area is home to some of the largest cranberry marshes in the country. For nearly fifty miles, the Cranberry Highway winds through century-old cranberry beds from Wisconsin Rapids to Warrens and from Pittsville to Nekoosa. Guided tours through Splash of Red Cranberry Tours are available by reservation. Eight miles north of Wisconsin Rapids in Rudolph, Wisconsin Dairy State Cheese offers a look at another classic Wisconsin enterprise, cheese making. Rudolph is also the home of an intriguing chapter in Wisconsin folk art – the Rudolph Grotto Gardens and Wonder Cave.

Whether you bicycle, hike, ATV, snowmobile or ski, excellent trails connect the area’s well-kept parks. These recreational assets, coupled with excellent historic districts and family-friendly events, make this scenic stretch of the Wisconsin River a sure bet.
