WOLF CREEK CAMPGROUND

Located on Hwy 11 and Cnty K
The Wolf Creek Campground was created in 2005 on land donated to the Village by the Gratiot State Bank. Most of the work was done by a group of volunteers led by Bill Anschutz, a Village resident. Conveniently located just off of the Cheese County Recreation Trail and Wisconsin Highway 11, Wolf Creek Campground is a great place for camping, ATV enthusiasts, and fisherman. The Wolf Creek, a trout stream, runs through the Wolf River campground and empties into the Pecatonica River, just North and a little east of town. The Pecatonica is touted for fishing many varieties, and canoeing as well. A foot bridge across the creek is under construction and is expected to be accessible Summer 2014.

Cheese County Recreation Trail

The Cheese County Recreation Trail runs through Gratiot, parallel to Hwy. 11. Along the trail in Gratiot, you will find the Gratiot BOCO (for food, drink and fuel), the Nixon House (full service restaurant, bar and hotel), the Wolf Creek Campground, the Gratiot Park (pavillion, baseball diamond, playground), and other choices for food and drink. Hop off the trail and get a little R&R in Gratiot.

(The following description is taken from TrailLink by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy.

If you're looking for an invigorating motorized trail experience, the Cheese Country Trail (a.k.a. the Tri-County Trail) will not disappoint. The 47-mile trail meanders through the heart of southwest Wisconsin's Driftless Area, a massive tract of land noted for the rolling hills and rocky outcroppings left untouched by glaciers.
