Conveniently located in the center of the state, the Stevens Point area is a recreationalist playground in the heart of central Wisconsin. Fish the diverse rivers of the Wisconsin River and the backwaters, including the 6,830–acre Lake DuBay, a hotbed for walleyes, northern pike, muskies, and bass. Paddle the backwaters and sloughs, trout streams and smaller lakes for more variety. On land, leisurely follow one of many great trails. Explore 26-miles of the Green Circle Trail, hike at Standing Rocks County Park, bike the limestone-covered Tomorrow River State Trail or discover hidden trails within Schmeeckle Reserve. The Stevens Point Area has no shortage of great recreational trails but what makes these trails even better is the ability to connect from one trail system to the next with ease.
The fun continues indoors by visiting local breweries, walking through local farmers markets and eating in distinct restaurants. Get to know the local art scene, inspired by the natural beauty of the area. Explore and purchase art from the blossoming artist community in numerous galleries, or explore the connection between the arts and nature at the Stevens Point Sculpture Park.
