Beautiful Lake Pepin

The wide area of the lake stretches from Bay City, Wisconsin, in the north, down past Pepin, Wisconsin, and Reeds Landing, Minnesota, in the south, with Pepin being just upstream from where the Chippewa River enters the Mississippi. The villages of Maiden Rock and Stockholm border on the Wisconsin side, while Frontenac State Park takes up a large part of the Minnesota side. The largest city on the waterfront is Lake City, Minnesota.

Pierce County is a special place.  It is home to more than 41,000 residents, good schools including the University of Wisconsin – River Falls, and some of the most productive farms in the state.  Pierce County is also home to beautiful natural spaces as well, with fish-filled lakes, rivers and streams and parks abundant with opportunities for rest and relaxation.
