Regional Draw:

Centrally located within a population of 18 million,  and easily accessible within half a day or less of driving distance, Wyalusing is central to the scenic wonder and majesty of our mightiest rivers and bluffs that still grace this region--the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers.  


It is a mix of spectacular and accessible wild and beautiful environment--natural flora and fauna that is unique to the area, along with a wide range of activities for an active outdoor lifestyle--including golfing, boating, fishing, hunting, birding, kayaking, hiking, and biking.   


Wyalusing is one of the most historically significant locations in the Midwest.

Here is the epic story, and the very location of the settlement of North America: A river out post-- built on exploration, abundant wildlife, fur trade, and survival.


It is the scene of pivotal moments of medicine, education, war, peace, and geo-political forces in time-- like no other.


Wyalusing now awaits its next chapter, that of a destination and a future worthy of the past.

With thoughtful development, it will be a destination of peace, contemplation, comfort, beauty, adventure, and recreational escape like no other.
