Adams County was one of the regions left untouched by planing that affected much of the northern and eastern regions of the state during Wisconsin Glaciation. Today, the area remains complimented by beautiful geological formations such as Roche-a-cri or crevice in the rocks. This magnificent 300-foot bluff is the only site where publicly accessible ancient rock art can be viewed in the State of Wisconsin and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The undeniable beauty of Adams County is showcased by its rich quantity of recreational activities. Residents enjoy state hiking/biking trails, plentiful land for hunting, miles of ATV/snowmobiling trails, 6 golf courses, 10 campgrounds, and a weekly farmers market.
This county spans from just above the famous Wisconsin Dells area to quaint, Rome, Wisconsin. Its Western border runs along miles of waterways, starting with the Wisconsin River which drains into the connecting Castle Rock and Petenwell Lakes - Wisconsins 4th and 2nd largest lakes.
The presence of these two prominent lakes make the county a hotspot for fisherman seeking Walleye, Pan Fish, Musky and Bass. People love its classic lake life atmosphere as it is also a desirable location for boating and water sports.
Adams County is a sportsman's paradise thanks to sound management practices and minimized habitat encroachment. A few once prevalent species have staged recent comebacks, most notably the wild turkey.
Two small school districts - Wisconsin Dells and Adams-Friendship provide a safe, individualized, learning environment where students can form strong relationships with their teachers and peers.
