What kind of activities are there at the property?

 

  • We pride ourselves on offering the one true, private "sanctuary" getaway in the Midwest.

    • We offer no activity at the Kickapoo Valley Ranch.

    • We focus all our efforts on providing you with a quiet, country getaway that simply cannot be found anywhere else in Wisconsin.

    • Surrounded by such vast "nothingness" (the Kickapoo Valley Reserve's 8659 acres of pristine beauty) you will likely not find anything like this anywhere in the Midwest. 

 

  • There is no playground on the property.

  • There is no pool.

  • There is not even a flat, grassy area for Frisbee or lawn darts (to be able to be or allowed to be) played.

  • It is just not what this is all about here.

 

  • Respectfully, that is a more "The Wisconsin Dells" type of facility.

 

  • There is however, an area near the cabins for a quiet evening campfire.

    • (Again, we provide the wood; you provide the matches or lighter to get it going.)

 

With all that said many folks are still looking for opportunities to "do stuff" while they are here.
