Jackson County is in the west central part of Wisconsin. It constains the Black River State Forest and Lake Wazee, which is considered the deepest inland lake in Wisconsin. There are miles of ATV trails, campgrounds, local lakes, parks. Loggers were the first settlers of Jackson County and were drawn to the area for the white pine. When logging camps and sawmills closed, the area drew farmers for cranberries, sphagnum moss and strawberries.
Jackson County and the Black River State Forest offer over 200,000 acres of public land with many species of game including whitetail deer, turkeys, grouse, black bear, wolves and waterfowl.
