Welcome to Stevens Point Area

Welcome to the Stevens Point Area, nestled in the heart of central Wisconosin. When Stevens Point was first founded in 1858, the logging industry and trading posts defined the location. With help from the Wisconsin River, the railroad, and rich soil, the area continued to prosper. Now, the region is home to 27 municipalities with a population of over 70,000. During your stay, we encourage you to find the link between history and industry in the Stevens Point Area by visiting popular attractions. Get a taste for the area by visiting the Stevens Point Brewery, the fifth oldest continually operating brewery in the nation, or one of the other several craft breweries, wineries or distillery that call the area home. Explore the local food scene, family-friendly museums and unique local shops throughout Stevens Point. Discover the arts and culture scene of the region, from live performances to diverse art galleries. Explore the best views in the county this season by hiking or snow shoeing the Ice Age Trail or the Stevens Point Sculpture Park trail. See more stunning winter views in the 280-acre Schmeeckle Reserve or along the Green Circle Trail, a 26-mile trail that winds along the Wisconsin River and Little Plover River. For more winter fun, try cross-country skiing the Plover Rover Trail segment of the Green Circle. If the conditions are right, head out for a little ice fishing action. Popular spots include the Wisconsin River Flowage and Lake DuBay. Then, grab the family and bundle up for some winter fun at Iverson Park. Enjoy the sledding hills, try the toboggan runs, or ice-skate, before heading indoors to the warming house. For a little more speed try snowmobiling, with more than 300 miles of groomed trails, or downhill skiing at Standing Rocks County Park. We hope you enjoy your stay!
