Welcome to BARABOO Welcome to the 2017 edition of explore BARABOO! Whether you’re visiting for the first time or making the Baraboo area your new home, this publication will welcome, educate and highlight our exciting and breathtaking community! Baraboo is located in the Driftless Region of the Upper Midwest. Our location in this amazing geographical phenomenon coupled with our proximity to larger metropolitan areas gives us a wealth of opportunities to offer you. From our natural gifts to the people who call it home, Baraboo will not disappoint. Founded in the early 19th century, Baraboo is said to be tied to an 18th century French Canadian fur trader named Francois Barbeau. In 1846, Baraboo became the Sauk County seat and, a few years later, home to the Ringling family, whose brothers grew up and formed the Ringling Bros. Circus. The Ringling family chose to use Baraboo as their winter headquarters for a number of years, and with this rich history, Baraboo later became the home to Circus World. In addition, Baraboo is the home of the International Clown Hall of Fame, the Aldo Leopold Foundation and the International Crane Foundation. If being outdoors is your scene, Baraboo has you (un)covered! Located next to Wisconsin’s most popular State Park—Devil’s Lake—and a few short minutes from Mirror Lake State Park you can take advantage of these immaculately maintained and respected gems of our community. Or you may choose to take a trip down the Baraboo River, once the backbone of industry, now one of the longest stretches of open river in the county. In addition to the outdoor pursuits, Baraboo hosts many fairs, festivals, concerts, performances and art tours, bringing fun and frivolity to the community over the year. You will see a glimpse of our annual events in the Calendar of Events in this publication. For a full dynamic schedule of events visit Treasuring the past and looking to the future is clearly evident in our vibrant and engaged schools, a local University of Wisconsin Colleges campus and a healthy and diverse array of industries and businesses. All in all, Baraboo is a great place to visit or make your new home! We hope that you will find explore BARABOO 2017 a useful tool to start your exploration of Baraboo. We love our community and know you will too. Welcome!

In the 19th century, Baraboo became the headquarters of several circuses, including the Ringling Bros. Circus, and thus became known as Circus City. Baraboo is home to Circus World, the former headquarters and winter home of the Ringling Bros. Circus and now the largest facility preserving circus artifacts and ephemera in the United States. The Al. Ringling Theatre, an active landmark in the city, opened its doors in November 1915 and has been operating continuously ever since. Several Ringling homes still exist, including the Al. Ringling Museum Mansion, located downtown. The nearby Baraboo Hills are designated one of the “Last Great Places” by the Nature Conservancy because of unique rocks, plants and animals. Devil’s Lake State Park, Wisconsin’s largest state park, contains large areas of the

Baraboo Hills. The hills near Baraboo were created by glacial action. Just a short drive outside of Baraboo will lead to several picturesque communities which add much to the Baraboo area. North Freedom, located just eight miles west of Baraboo, is home to the Mid-Continent Railway Museum, a unique attraction to the area featuring rides on restored operating steam engines and an extensive museum. Driving a little further west, between Baraboo and Reedsburg, brings travelers to the Village of Rock Springs. The Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue and Education Center provides a safe place and comfortable home for abused, neglected and unwanted big cats and educates visitors about these extraordinary animals. During the summer months in Rock Springs, Friday evenings bring visitors from far and wide for music, food and classic cars at weekly fundraisers for the Big Cat Rescue Center. Merrimac features the free Merrimac Ferry, a functional regional crossing and a tourist attraction. It is the state’s only free ferry, as well as the only ferry left on the state trunk highway network. The ferry is close to the head of Lake Wisconsin as well as regional recreation areas, including Devil’s Lake and Wisconsin Dells.

There are dozens of theories as to how the Baraboo River was named, but the earliest known reference is that a French Canadian fur trader operated a winter trading post at its mouth in the mid-18th century. The complete story of this fur trader can be found in the book A Man Called Baraboo, by local author M. Richard Tully.

Navigating the BARABOO RIVER

The Baraboo River at most times is a slow, shallow river with areas of shallow rapids. Under normal conditions the Baraboo is a fairly easy river to paddle by canoe or kayak.

If the water is too low, you can find yourself getting hung up often and needing to get out and walk around shallows, but at other times, when the water levels are higher, the river can be quite swift and should not be paddled by


and its Watershed Sources include: UW–Extension Environmental Resources Center and Skillet Creek Media

24 Baraboo Area Chamber of Commerce

anyone other than experienced paddlers. At all times, it is important to be alert to changing conditions and aware that the current can be quite strong in places. There are sections of Class I rapids in the Baraboo city limits area. Most land along the river is privately owned. Respect private property rights along the banks. No camping is allowed along the river, but public and private campgrounds are available nearby.

BIG TOP PARADE 5th Anniversary Big Top Parade & Circus Celebration Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages! Mark July 22, 2017, on your calendars, as Baraboo commemorates its monumental circus heritage by hosting the 5th Anniversary Big Top Parade & Circus Celebration!

Photograph by Mike Heath

The Big Top Parade, featuring over 75 circus and community entries, will begin at 11:00 a.m., traveling around the historic downtown courthouse square. Other familyfriendly events are scheduled in the city to take place pre and post parade. “Baraboo will come to life in grand circus proportions on July 22,” says Nanci Caflish, event co-chair and board member of the Baraboo Area Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the Big Top Parade & Circus Celebration. “We have assembled a whirlwind day of fun for all ages to celebrate our community’s unique circus heritage. The excitement will come to a head when the Big Top Parade steps off on Saturday morning. Young and old will be enthralled by the antique circus wagons, marching bands, horses and other animals and, of course, the cavalcade of clowns!” “In 1884, five brothers from Baraboo, the Ringlings, put together the most stupendous circus ever known to man,” explains Scott O’Donnell, executive director of Circus World. “This was a time before the internet, motion pictures and television, even a time before reliable radio. How did people across America see these magnificent creatures, daredevil

feats and performers from around the globe? It was only through the advent of the American circus, including and especially Baraboo’s very own Ringling Bros. Circus. Also from Baraboo were the Ringling’s first cousins, the Gollmars, who had a magnificent circus of their own, and their first cousins, the Moellers, who created the whimsical, majestic circus wagons that were part of the Ringling circus and circuses all across America. The Ringling Brothers and their extended family really encapsulated the American dream and changed American history and American culture forever.” After catching the parade, top off your afternoon by heading down to Baraboo’s treasured Circus World to catch one of their two big top performances. This complete day’s package will leave you amazed and in awe of the splendor of all that Baraboo provides. In 2016, the Big Top Parade & Circus Celebration was recognized among the Top 100 Events in North America by the American Bus Association. Recognition on this list highlights the Parade for its value to tour groups and individual travelers from around the world. explore BARABOO 2017 ! 39

Devil’s Lake has both warm- and cold-water fisheries. Each year, the DNR stocks the lake with brown trout. Browns are taken mainly on small minnows or spinners of the steeply dropping east and west shores. You will also find walleye, which are stocked, and northern pike. Easy access fishing is available along the south shore of the lake, where it is possible to fish just off the sidewalk. Please note that power boats are not allowed on Devil’s Lake. Fish at Devil’s Lake include trout, common carp, northern pike, white sucker, bullhead, catfish, white bass, rock bass, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, green sunfish, pumpkinseed, bluegill, crappie, walleye, yellow perch, iowa darter and johnny darter (the trout and carp are not native). • 608-356-8301 Mirror Lake is a 139-acre lake with a maximum depth of 19 feet. The lake has three public boat landings. To use the landing within the park you will need a Wisconsin State Park sticker. Mirror Lake is entirely no wake, so boaters should be aware of the regulations specific to this lake. This is not a lake for jet skis, but is a premier lake for kayaks and canoes. Fish explore BARABOO 2017 ! 45

include panfish, largemouth bass, northern pike and walleye. The lake’s water clarity is low. • 608-254-2333 Lake Wisconsin is a 7197-acre lake with a maximum depth of 24 feet. Visitors have access to the lake from public boat landings. Some public landings include Summer Oaks County Park, Moon Valley and Palisade Street in the Village of Merrimac. Please be advised that if this is your first time on Lake Wisconsin you should use caution. Shallow spots with snags, the Merrimac car ferry cables and the low sections of the railway bridge are all potential hazards. Fish include panfish, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, northern pike, trout, walleye and catfish. The lake’s water clarity is low.

46 Baraboo Area Chamber of Commerce

Lake Delton is a 249-acre lake with a maximum depth of 16 feet. Visitors have access to the lake from public boat landings. Lake Delton is very popular for powerboats, jet skis and fishing. The lake also shares the water with Dells Ducks and can be hazardous during busy summer days— use caution. Fish include panfish, largemouth bass, northern pike, walleye and catfish. • 608-635-8122 Gallus Slough is a 20-acre body of water located just north of and across Highways 78 and 113 from Lake Wisconsin. The slough is connected to the lake by a narrow waterway that runs under Highway 78 at Moon Valley. During the open-water season, access to Gallus Slough by boat is from this waterway and the boat landing at Moon Valley. During ice fishing season, the best access is from Highway 113, which runs north to Devil’s Lake State Park. Park your vehicle along Highway 113 and pull your sled and equipment through the farm field 1/4 mile to the water. There’s always a good path to the water even if there’s snow on the ground. Anglers walking

and pulling sleds and ATV traffic keep the walking easy. The nice thing about Gallus Slough is that it is a good early ice fishing spot and continues to produce fish throughout the ice season. The slough is no deeper than five feet at its deepest spot and is quite weedy, with milfoil being the dominant weed. Bluegills are the most common species of fish that you’ll catch, with crappies a close second. Most bluegills run 7–9 inches and the crappies are in the 10–12 inch range. The weeds provide cover and help the slough’s food chain flourish. • 608-635-8122 The Baraboo River flows about 100 miles from its headwaters near Hillsboro to its confluence with the Wisconsin River, south of Portage. Access can be obtained at numerous locations, including Rock Springs, North Freedom at Fireman’s Park, Giese Park on Hatchery Road, several parks within the City of Baraboo and at the Glenville Landing. Reports of crappies, bluegills and channel catfish are common. Northern and walleye pike are being caught throughout the river. Smallmouth bass fishing along the rapids through the City of Baraboo is a regular occurrence. • 608-635-8122 The Wisconsin River is the longest river in Wisconsin, at over 430 miles, and is known for outstanding walleye fishing. The Wisconsin River begins near Lac Vieux Desert and flows southwest into the Mississippi River near Prairie du Chien. The spring walleye run on the Wisconsin River is legendary, and you can catch over 50 in a day, with great catches coming below dams. When the water warms after the spring runs, you can catch a large number of smallmouth bass. The rocky banks of the Wisconsin River provide ideal habitat for smallmouth bass. You can also catch big muskies after they spawn in May below the dam, and the fishing can continue to be good through fall. The backwaters of the Wisconsin River are popular spots to catch northern pike, crappie and bluegills. • 608-635-8122 Visit for more information about area lakes and waterways. explore BARABOO 2017 ! 47
