    Back To Nature In The Dells - Reduce Your Environmental Footprint

    biking-wisconsin-dells-64Would you be surprised to know that visitors first came to Wisconsin Dells for a dose of back-to-nature? To think that well-heeled Chicagoans made the trip north by train so they could take a row boat tour of the Wisconsin River may seem a strange way to burn a few vacation days, but it was the Wisconsin Dells scenery that struck people as really special. As homage to those early visitors of the 1850s, and as encouragement to preserve the area's environmental legacy, consider these green travel tips from Travel Green Wisconsin, the group that certifies businesses who’ve made a commitment to sustainable practices, the next time you're in the Dells.

    Reconnect with the World Around You

    Technology pushes us ahead at warp speed. But there are times when slowing down to really appreciate the natural beauty of Wisconsin Dells is called for. Are you in for this itinerary? Then better get your gear packed.

    Wisconsin Dells has more campgrounds than ever before and most offer a mix of sites. If you like tent camping, for example, reserve a site at Stand Rock Campground where there are 100 acres of hiking trails to keep you active or at Bonanza Campground & RV Park where they have a wooded area for tents only. Sherwood Forest Camping & RV Park has easy-on easy-off interstate access for those of you with big rigs and it’s within walking distance of the Dells’ downtown district. Pop-ups and RVs have a home at Mt. Olympus Zeus’ Village & Camp Resort.

    Not traveling with gear, but still want a camping-esque experience? Rent a camping cabin at Yogi Bear’s Camp-Resort & Water Playground, a vacation park model at Holiday Shores Camp-Resort or a full-sized resort cabin at the eco-friendly Birchcliff Resort.

    If you’re serious about fishing, you’ll likely be towing your own boat. Put it in the water at a public launch on Lake Delton and wait for the fish to bite. If you like the fishing action on the Wisconsin River, where reeling in bass, northern pike and walleye is an everyday occurrence, there’s a boat launch at River’s Edge Resort.

    Three spectacular state parks prove Wisconsin Dells was smooched by Mother Nature. Devil’s Lake State Park is famous for its views from 500-foot-high cliffs. Mirror Lake State Park is so tranquil that you’ll find canoeing there to be a nearly religious experience. Rocky Arbor State Park, open Memorial Day through Labor Day, is a cool escape thanks to all the pine trees. And in downtown Dells there’s the RiverWalk, a paved trail that snakes along the river with game tables and park benches.

    If you prefer to take in the beauty of the river from a seated position, buy a ticket for a ride aboard a classic double-decker riverboat, or a paddle wheeler, or one of those land-to-water vehicles everyone calls “the Ducks.” Pontoon boats are a fun way to roll from one end of Lake Delton to the other.

    An attraction that should be on every nature-lovers’ itinerary is the International Crane Foundation, a restored nature sanctuary and the only place in the world where you can see all 15 species of those majestic birds.

    Keep it easy on the environment by dining at restaurants that believe in fresh seasonal ingredients sourced locally when possible. High on the list is High Rock Café, with its cosmopolitan-style seasonal menus and Cheesecake Heaven Deli Restaurant just across the street where everything is made from scratch including the mayo on the sandwiches. For vegetarians (and those who just love food made with lots of flavorful herbs and spices), the Cheese Factory Restaurant is one special place.
