Unfortunately, not as much as we'd hoped for. Just a dusting. Skiing, snow shoeing and snow snakes won't happen; all hikes will. Waiting to hear what form the sled dog races will take and we'll update as soon as we do. Hope you still come out. Lots of other fun stuff!

What are the trail conditions? Is the dogsled race still on?
Kickapoo Valley Reserve
-- 08/01/2018 14:34
Trail conditions are not great at the moment. There is snow in the forecast for Thursday, so we are hopeful.. We will make the final determination then. It is likely the dogs will still run, snow or no snow, as they have the ability to run on carts instead of sleds. We will update this event page as more information becomes available.

Is there any winter camping available??
Kickapoo Valley Reserve
-- 28/12/2017 15:01
Absolutely! Campsites on the Kickapoo Valley Reserve are open year-round. We only plow out a select few areas, but that shouldn't deter hearty winter adventure campers. Campsites are first come first served and are primitive camping, meaning no facilities or amenities (except a fire pit). Hike in sites are $10/per night and vehicle accessible sites are $15/night, both for up to 10 people per site. We do have two sites that can accommodate more than 10 people if you need that. If you need more information about winter camping on the KVR feel free to call the Visitor Center at 608-625-2960, we would be happy to answer any questions and help you plan your trip.

Kickapoo Valley Reserve Winter Festival is quickly approaching. It is getting close enough that we can take a sneak peek at the projected forecast. We think and hope there will be SNOW! Never fear, snow or no snow the show will go on, and we plan to make Winter Festival 2018 one for the books. The current cold temperatures are sure to give us all cabin fever by then and what better way to cure that, than to get outdoors. Make plans to join us on Saturday, January 13th, we know you need some outdoor family fun!
