We offer you  unparalleled  scenery steeped in a rich history.  We're home to river kayaking, fishing, hunting, biking and cross country skiing.  Our Black Hawk Park, located on Battle Island, is a tourist attraction that still feels like your own private park on the Mississippi River.

The town lies within the Mississippi Valley and benefits from the natural beauty and resources of the surrounding river bluffs and valleys which are part of the unique geography of the driftless region, ―the land missed by the glaciers!

We believe in the preservation of our land, our forests our wildlife and natural resources.  Our rural atmosphere and downright friendly people make this area a place you’ll want to visit again and again.
