Greater Mauston finds you… connecting with nature

There are so many activities near Mauston and virtually all of them relate to getting out and enjoying the outdoors. Oh don’t get us wrong, there are lots of indoor activities like visiting The Boorman House, Juneau County’s Historical Society Museum. Then on to some of our renowned wineries, cheese factories, and apple orchards where you can spend a leisurely afternoon. Our bluff country, with its scenic vistas, and Castle Rock Lake are beautiful all year round, but especially in the fall or after a fresh fallen snow.

But for those looking for adventure spring, summer, fall and winter you will not be disappointed with the many activities near Mauston, Wisconsin.
