The Stevens Point area offers many great places to launch a canoe or kayak. Whether you’re looking for flat and calm waters or the challenge of some rolling rapids, you’ll find it around the Stevens Point area. Families and beginning paddlers should check out Lake Joanis in Stevens Point, a picturesque paddling route that features flat routes and easy access. Intermediate paddlers can find more of a challenge on the Upper Plover River in Stevens Point, a route that features generally flat water with some rocky stretches. The Tomorrow River in Amherst offers another good option. This route meanders through woods and fields and passes the historic Rising Star Mill. Paddlers with advanced skills should consider Mill Creek in Linwood. Get out on the river in the spring, when the water is high. Rapids on the route offer a challenge for skilled paddlers.

COMMUNITY RESOURCES

Stevens Point When Stevens Point was founded in 1858, this was a community of loggers, fur traders and brewers. The community is still known for its outstanding beer and so much more: companies such as Delta Dental, Sentry Insurance, Travel Guard and Herrschners all call this place home. The University of Wisconsin– Stevens Point is one of the community’s treasures. The 400-acre campus includes Schmeeckle Reserve, the Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame, the Museum of Natural History, the Carlsten Art Gallery and the Allen F. Blocher Planetarium.

Plover Just south of Stevens Point on the east shore of the Wisconsin River is the Village of Plover. This charming community is conveniently located at the crossroads of I-39 and Hwy. 51, and is home to a variety of retailers and businesses, including O’so Brewing Company and Great Northern Distilling. The village also has many great parks and the Korean War Memorial of Wisconsin at Lake Pacawa.

Town of Plover The Town of Plover is a great place to live, offering peaceful surroundings just minutes from shopping, dining and other businesses. The town has a rich agricultural tradition and is home to some of the state’s largest vegetable farms.

Amherst On the banks of the Tomorrow River, you’ll find the Village of Amherst, a quiet but thriving community with a very strong sense of place. Amherst is home to the Tomorrow River State Trail, Lettie W. Jensen Community Center and Central Waters Brewing Company.

Other Gems The countryside is dotted with small communities like Junction City, Almond, Rosholt, Nelsonville, Park Ridge, Whiting and Amherst Junction. The rural Lake DuBay area in northwestern Portage County offers many recreational opportunities and encompasses most of the townships of Eau Pleine, Hull and Dewey.

The Stevens Point area is located in the heart of Wisconsin, at the crossroads of the Wisconsin River Valley and the Central Sands Region.
