Most of the shoreline is in its natural state - a sanctuary where wildlife flourishes. Many people travel far north to experience what is nestled right in Central Wisconsin. The Wisconsin River is wide, fairly deep and provides some of the best Walleye, Bass, Northern and Musky fishing in the State.
Ridgewood provides access to sandbars that host lines of pontoons and boats wanting to swim and enjoy the shallow waters in the sun the sandbars offer. From Ridgewood, campers can hop on their boat or pontoon and get to either of two restaurants on the River. Both restaurants have dock space for patrons to park their boats.
The River provides marvelous opportunities for boating, kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, tubing, pontooning and water skiing. Seasonal campers can rent a private boat slip (limited availability) for the season to enjoy these sports or use the boat landing for occasional boat use. Refer to the Seasonal Rates page for the private boat slip costs.
