The family-friendly brewery overlooks Memory Lake in downtown Grantsburg, and boasts “grain-to-glass” brews that are served in an industrial-chic taproom. There are different events going on every week that aim to please from workout sessions, to arts and crafts workshops, to trivia nights. But Wisconsin isn’t just known for its beer. A thriving and growing wine culture exists here, as well. Wisconsin’s one-of-a-kind cli- mate grows unique grapes that translate into full-flavored, delicious Wisconsin wines. Burnett County is home to two wineries serv- ing up some of the best in small-batch wine making. Clover Meadow Winery/White Wolf Distillery’s cozy tasting room is open year- round and comes with many great stories. You’ll have to try their award-winning spirits as well. Tommy’s Too High Wines in Danbury has won multiple accolades for their unique wine flavors, and folks who visit rave about the friendly atmosphere. Some have said that it feels like their home-away-from-home. BURNETT DAIRY COOPERATIVE & CHEESE STORE Burnett Dairy Cooperative, located just outside Grantsburg, just cele- brated their 125th Anniversary in 2021. The dairy is a fully integrated farm- er-owned cooperative that handles everything from helping its owners care for their crops, providing animal feed, health and nutrition services, to creating award-winning cheese for retail, food service and private label customers. The Burnett Dairy Cheese Store offers more than 100 varieties of fresh, natural, small batch cheeses. Open daily, they offer free cheese samples, free wine sampling Friday through Sunday, fresh cheese curds, and a large array of local gourmet prod- ucts including craft beer and spirits. They are well known for their delicious soft serve ice cream and take-n-bake pizzas. The Bistro serves breakfast and lunch, offering sand- wiches, wraps, pizza, fried cheese curds, soup, salads and desserts mak- ing the Burnett Dairy Cheese Store a true destination. Groups are welcome and call-ahead orders are encouraged. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and ample parking. Visit their General Store, located across the parking lot from the Cheese Store, for all your country needs. Open daily with great personal service, they specialize in convenience, fuel, propane, hardware, farm supplies, hunting and fishing supplies and licenses, lawn and garden, animal feed and supplies, power tools, country gifts, and a Beer Barn featuring a wide variety of craft brews. CASINOS The St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin own and operate two of the newest casinos in the region, right here in Burnett County. Try your luck on the exciting casino floors, but be sure to save (or win) some mon- ey to dine in one of their family-friendly dining options. There are incredi- ble meeting and event spaces, indoor and outdoor music venues, modern hotel amenities and RV park. Visit their locations in Danbury and Hertel for fun you won’t soon forget. FARM-TO-TABLE AGRITOURISM If you enjoy meeting local farmers while learning where and how your food is produced, agritourism is the activity for you. Home to many thriv- ing agricultural-based operations, Burnett County is the perfect place to visit local farms, ranches and participate in many other farm-related activ- ities, including local farmers’ markets. Agriculture is a vital component of the economy, culture and landscape that makes up Burnett County. Aim- ing to cultivate relationships with those in the community while work- ing to bridge the gap between the producer and consumer in a fun and educational way, agritourism is a great way to have fun and learn about farming at the same time. FORTS FOLLE AVOINE HISTORICAL PARK Whoever says history isn’t fun hasn’t been to Forts Folle Avoine His- torical Park. This 80-acre park sits on the site of two early 1800s fur trade posts, which had been hidden for over 160 years before a group of people decided to look for it and found the ruins of two fur posts along the river. With the dedicated support of the Burnett County Historical Society, the trading posts were reconstructed in the 1980s, giving residents and visitors a way to connect to Burnett County’s past. It is the only known instance of two competing trading companies having trading posts in such close proximity to one another. The park offers tours of the site and Woodland Indian Village. Visitors can enjoy the 100 year-old log visitor center with a gift shop, fur trade and Native Ameri- can exhibits, the blacksmith shop, a one- room schoolhouse, the logging museum, or trek the nature trails year round. The Forts’ amphitheater, on the banks of the Yellow River, is a breathtaking backdrop for special events, and the facility is available to rent for weddings, reunions and other gather- ings. Some of the most fun to be had at The Forts happens during their incredibly popular an- nual events. From delicious wild rice pancake breakfasts to The Great Folle Avoine Fur Trade Rendezvous, where re-enactors dress traditionally for demonstrations throughout the park, The Forts is truly the place to be. SACRED GROVE East of Webster is the hidden, tranquil Sacred Grove - a 60’ labyrinth developed by private residents with a deep spiritual connection to the land it sits on. This quiet space is perfect for introspection and personal growth. An opportunity to be still and meditate while being surrounded by the beauty of nature. The labyrinth is a metaphor for finding one’s own path through transformation and spending time with oneself. Not only is there the labyrinth to walk, visitors can also visit the Athani II retreat cabin meditation garden and paths. ST. CROIX NATIONAL SCENIC RIVERWAY Burnett County is home to not one, but two beautiful and scenic riverways. The St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers are most popular for camping, hiking, trail running, hunting, tubing, canoe- ing, fishing, paddling and boating. Burnett County is known for its natural spaces, and being home to one of only two National Parks in Wisconsin is certainly a point of pride. The County features 80 miles of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway - more than any other Wisconsin county. In to- tal, the park spans 255 miles and is made up by both the Namekagon and St. Croix Rivers. As such, you’ll experience both quiet, backwater stretch- es and big-river experiences. Fishing is a popular activity on these two rivers. The St. Croix is known for its smallmouth bass fishing along with other species such as walleye, northern pike, muskellunge, sturgeon and catfish; while the Namekagon also includes exceptional brown and brook trout fishing. These protected waters remain as pristine as ever, thanks to the efforts of the National Park Service and their supporting agencies. Not to be forgotten, how- ever, is the stewardship provided by our river out- fitters. With deep-seeded respect for the riverway, these outfitters help trav- elers navigate the river in a way that is both enjoy- able and respectful to one of our greatest natural resources. These folks will help you plan a leisurely float down the river or an overnight camp- ing adventure on the shores of the Riverway, assisting in everything from kayak and canoe pick-ups and drop-offs, equipment rental and advice. The Namekagon River is arguably a world of its own. Dubbed “Wiscon- sin’s Moving National Park,” this exciting stretch of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway calls to those looking for a more wild experience. The 100-mile river features exciting oxbows and stretches of rushing currents, while traveling through both high and low banks. It is well worth the trip for river enthusiasts. Find out more information at namekagonriver.org. WILDLIFE AREAS Burnett County is home to 52,000 acres of State Wildlife Areas, the most of any Wisconsin county, and is the perfect place to visit to view birds and other wildlife. CREX MEADOWS WILDLIFE AREA If the chance to see a rare Blanding’s turtle, the endangered Karner blue butterfly, a trumpeter swan family or the elusive grey wolf, or just the thought of immersing yourself in nature sounds appealing, look no fur- ther than our very own wetlands gem, Crex Meadows State Wildlife Area. Located just north of Grantsburg, this 30,000+ acre property of intensely managed marshland, prairies, flowages and forests is home to over 280 species of birds, 720 species of plants, 96 species of butterfly, and doz- ens of species of mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Nature enthusiasts come from around the world to witness the spring warbler migration and the fall gathering of 15,000+ Sandhill Cranes. Crex is part of the Lake Superior Northwoods Region of the Great Wis- consin Birding & Nature Trail and is at the southwest end of the North- west Sands Ecological Landscape. The Crex Meadows Wildlife Educa- tion & Visitor Center welcomes guests year-round. Inside you will find interactive exhibits, educational videos and a welcoming staff waiting to answer your questions. Educa- tional programming is offered throughout the year, including specialty hikes, wildlife festi- vals, guided tours and much more. NAMEKAGON BARRENS WILDLIFE AREA The Namekagon Barrens Wildlife Area consists of more than 6,000 acres in north- ern Burnett and Washburn counties, and is part of the Northwest Sands Ecological Landscape. Its two units lie on either side of the Namekagon River where it flows westward toward the St. Croix River. The jack pine-scrub oak barrens habitat is a fire-loving com- munity that is globally rare and rich with diverse prairie flora and fauna. Home to one of the largest remaining populations of sharp-tailed grouse and many other animals and plants, the barrens environment is shaped by its very sandy, droughty soils. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources uses controlled burning to mimic the natural fires that were common pre- European settlement that helped to maintain the area as barrens. It is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts, photographers, hikers and folks that love wild blueberry picking. AMSTERDAM SLOUGHS & FISH LAKE WILDLIFE AREAS The Amsterdam Sloughs, another 6,000 acre property, features a di- verse mix of marshes, flowages, swamp land and forests. Birding enthu- siasts will most likely catch glimpses of the great blue herons, osprey and eagles here. Fish Lake Wildlife Area is 14,000 acres, and contains large sedge marshes - remnants of the 1,200 year old “Glacial Lake Grants- burg,” as well as vast brush prairie and native red pine forests. GOVERNOR KNOWLES STATE FOREST Governor Knowles State Forest is a 55-mile-long forest in northwest- ern Wisconsin that parallels the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. It offers camping, paddling, hiking, horseback riding, biking, hunting, fish- ing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling opportunities. Three camp- grounds (St. Croix, Trade River Equestrian and Sioux Portage Group) and nine primitive backpack campsites are found within 32,500 wooded acres. The Brant Pines ski trail offers groomed trails for cross country skiing. Hunters will find whitetail deer, turkey, black bear, squirrel, ruffed grouse and woodcock throughout the forest. It also encompasses several trout streams, of which, the Trade River and Wolf Creek are most popular for anglers.
