Lower Wisconsin State Riverway Mazomanie Recreation Management Area


The 2,300 acre Mazomanie Recreation Management Area located on the south side of the Wisconsin River Resource offers a range of wetland, open grassland/barrens and forested habitats. The area is a popular destination for pheasant and deer hunters, day hikers, birders and sun bathers at the beach. The area’s extensive network of management roads receives heavy use by hikers all year round. Dog trials are held on almost every weekend throughout the summer and the fall. In addition to the recreational opportunities available on these DNR lands, Dane County’s adjacent Walking Iron Park and Walking Iron Wildlife Area combined provide over 1,200 acres of additional public land offering hiking, horseback riding, hunting and wildlife viewing.

Local Knowledge:
Huge volumes of glacial meltwater transported large amounts of sand and gravel down the Wisconsin River Valley, undercutting the sandstone and dolomite adjacent to the river and forming the steep bluffs and sand plains of the river valley today.
