Wood County Parks
If you are looking to experience Wisconsin's changing seasons and great outdoors, you've come to the right place. The Wood County Pack and Forestry Department offers year round opportunities for just around everyone. Powers Bluff Winter Recreation Area is one of our most popular areas during the winter months. Conveniently located between Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids in the town of Arpin, Powers Bluff is the place to be for downhill skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. Concessions are available in our heated shelter and snowboard and downhill skis are available for rent. Tubes are provided with your tow ticket. Wood County also has groomed cross country trails at the Richfield 360 area and Nepco County Park. If touring the countryside on a snowmobile appeals to you, Wood County has over 250 miles of beautiful, scenic trails. These trails are maintained by 9 local snowmobile clubs. Ice fishing in Wood County is also very popular. Wood County Park and Forestry maintains parking areas for those venturing out on the ice at our Nepco, Dexter, and South Wood County Parks. Each of these areas also have restrooms open year around.
