This trail is over 30 miles long that includes, woods, water, city and suburban views. It is well maintained and we are lucky to have it in Stevens Point. Great trail for biking, walking or a run.

Great Northern Distilling

Reviewed By DISNEYCHICKS - Wisconsin

A bit late with this.. I thought I lost my photos for this days excursion ..but they are now found :)

Went for a ride with my brother and sister-in-law..they always find these fun little stops. They have been here before and thought I would enjoy the visit.

Well I did !! With this being so many months back I do not remember our drinks of choice ..but I did get to try a few of them.

I enjoyed watching the chemist make mine and the others drinks...all were very tasty. this is not a place that you would want to sit and toss back cocktails all day...kind of a place just to chill have a couple drinks and chat.

You can also get an informational little tour of their distillery.. but we did not join in.

Would defiantly return ..had a great experience.

Stevens Point Brewery

Reviewed By tabatha0605 - Plover, Wisconsin

The best brews are the ones that keep the traditions alive and the long standing tradition is Point Brewery supports their community by more than just providing jobs, they actually give back to the community through events and funding that support local families. They do not take out front page advertisements about their contributions because they actually do it for the belief in giving back to the community and family that work for them. This is another gem to seek out in Central Wisconsin because unlike Noel Group, Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Travel Group (previously owned by AIG), LandsEnd and others who think that wage setting is appropriate treatment for the people who dedicate their lives to working for them, the Point Brewery is 'old school' and gives back to Wisconsin because we are raised on strong working ethics that raise up a company or NFL team like no other state has shown!

Standing Rocks County Park

Reviewed By Hunter14u - Stevens Point, Wisconsin

We went to check out this park's hiking trails. We were here once before for a party at the lodge which was nice and thought since it was so close we would go for a hike. When we got there all we found was a biking/skiing trail that required a pass. It said on the sign NO FOOT ACCESS. So my question is where are the 10 miles of hiking trails that it claims on it's site? We saw the dog area and the disc golf course. We started driving towards the lodge but a sign said only lodge renters allowed beyond this point. We did not see a picnic area either which is listed on their site. Don't know if we were just lost or what, but at the very least you would think there would be more useful signs around.

Reviewed By tabatha0605 - Plover, Wisconsin

The park is fun and creative incorporation to get people and inspired at any age. The amazing creative life and inspired sculptures that bless the entrances of the universities, schools, and many parks throughout Central Wisconsin. It's just such a shame the state and courts are so corrupted no one can feel safe to enjoy these places anymore.

Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial

Reviewed By Jodi H

This memorial is like none I've ever seen. It's located on an island in Lake Pacawa, Plover, WI. You first approach a park and notice a bridge. The peacefulness just fills your body. As you cross the bridge you start to see 5 statues of brave soldiers standing tall and each representing a branch of our military. With or behind the statues are 3 large walls. 2 of which have the names of 801 Wisconsin citizens, men and women who lost their lives during the war. It is also there to honor the 4286 people from Wisconsin who were injured during the war. It is absolutely lovely. Such a serene place that I would highly recommend that you go visit with your family or alone. It will make an impact.

Mead Park

Reviewed By Valerie P

A stretching stop for our family on the way home from northern WI, kids loved playing tag with their dad relaxed in some shade outside the perimeter of the park. Hot day so much of the equipment was a bit hot to play on, but we still had fun. Lots of climbing, slides and educational pieces incorporated throughout.

Central Wisconsin Children's Museum

Reviewed By Lawgnome - Orlando, Florida

Each time I visit my mother-in-law we visit this fun children's museum. It is affordable and you can play for hours. There is an art area, a kid's pretend grocery, a camping area with a fun climber, huge windows that looks down on the street. There is a ton to do and even a baby room where you can nurse and change diapers. A great day out! I wish it was in Orlando!

Standing Rocks Dog Park

Reviewed By Lara P - Amherst, Wisconsin

This dog park is delightful. There are double gates in and out of the park, so it makes it easier to get yourself and your dog(s) collected before opening the gate to the park itself. There are several trails and short cuts all over. The people who bring their dogs here tend to have them under control. some are overly friendly, but my large dogs have always had a fun experience there. We see every breed imaginable. Every once in awhile we find an owner that doesn't keep track of their dog and it ends up going around with our dogs. Annoying, but what do you do. As long as my dogs don't mind... Can be hard for little dogs. When company has brought a smaller breed we keep them on a flexi-lead so we can bring them in and pick them up if need be. Did hear of a small dog being bitten badly by a large dog once.
