Information: 608-279-3755

Festge County Park (located just West of Cross Plains on Hwy 14) is along the gateway to the Driftless Area of Wisconsin, where the hills and valleys escaped the leveling forces of the glaciers occurring more than 10,000 years ago.  With bluffs soaring high above the Black Earth Creek valley floor, Festge Park is home to a rate bur oak savanna, hickory-covered hills, and remnant prairies.  Step into a sanctuary full of colors, light, and shadows where creatures awake to the vibrations and whispers of the forest.  Come experience a place where joy, inspiration, and discovery await you. Nearby Salmo Pond is adjacent to Black Earth Creek south of USH 14, and offers shoreline fishing, an accessible fishing pier and picnic areas.
