Things to Do

Whether you're looking to explore or just relax...

Rock County offers residents and visitors alike an abundant array of cultural, historical, natural and recreational options. Anchored by the Rock River, which flows from Lake Koshkonong and extends across the WI / IL border, this waterway offers water enthusiasts a range of activities - ranging from fishing to motorized watercrafts.

For those with a passion for culture...

Music, museums and performing arts venues can be found on the campuses of area higher learning institutions, as well as within a number designated performance locations. History buffs have the opportunity to stroll through a number of places of historic significance, including landmarks that were representative of this nation’s past socio-economic profile.

Acres of park land and open space...

Representing a mixture of local government owned and/or managed property, dot the landscape. With this concentration, it’s no wonder why the County Seat is known as the City of Parks. From the Ice Age Trail to various river walks, bikeways and nature trails there are over 250 miles of identified trails that weave throughout the County. Whether riding a bicycle, horse or simply cruising along on a pair of roller blades there are multiple trail options that appeal to beginners and seasoned path connoisseurs alike. Alternatively, take a drive along the County's designated rustic roads to capture a panoramic and/or picturesque view.
