Wisconsin Rapids Cranberry Harvest

Wisconsin Rapids Defines Fun

The Wisconsin Rapids area is certainly picturesque and relaxing, nestled along the Wisconsin River and in the heart of cranberry country. Though it is beautiful to look at, it is best to roll up your sleeves and experience it! Distinctive sports such as BMX racing, curling, water skiing, wakeboarding, stand up paddle boarding, trapshooting, ski jumping and motocross put us on the map. Home to over 30 parks, 8 waterways, and some of the world’s most prized birding opportunities, the Wisconsin Rapids area is a nature-lovers dream. Everyone has an adventurous side – bring yours to Wisconsin Rapids and enjoy!

Defining Fun

The 3 words we use to describe the Wisconsin brand of fun are...

The brand of fun in Wisconsin means...

Checking your inhibitions at the border! Try something NEW and be glad that you did. Feel the excitement of paddle boarding on the Wisconsin River, learn to shoot trap at an Olympic level facility, or try chocolate cheese. The best vacation souvenir is the bragging rights!

Examples of Fun Experiences

To bring fun to life, we provide experiences like...

A cranberry harvest tour that takes you up close and personal. Climb aboard the “Berry Bus” and enjoy an interactive tour with an actual grower. Pluck a berry from the water, watch the beautiful sandhill cranes and take LOTS of pictures. The sea of red berries against the backdrop of fiery fall colors… that is unmistakably Wisconsin!

I know our visitors are having fun because they’ve told us...

That they need to plan a longer trip next time! We had a family in town participating in the ABA Badger State National BMX Race. They were so impressed with our lakes and camping that they planned a return trip with the boat and wakeboards the following year.
