So much to do, so little time! From nature and history experiences to world-class events, there is something for all in Burnett County.

Grab your paddles and set course for river country. With nearly 80 miles of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway in Burnett County, which includes the St. Croix and Namekagon Rivers, you have truly entered a water-enthusiast’s paradise.. Forever protected as one of only two of Wisconsin’s National Parks, the 255 miles of the park represent one of the original eight National Wild and Scenic Riverways. A must for canoe and kayakers, the protected waters remain as pristine as ever, thanks to the efforts of the National Park Service and their supporting agencies.

Our very own wetlands gem is home to rare birds, including LeConte’s sparrow and yellow rail call the area just north of Grantsburg home, and entice birders from all over the region with the promise of a sighting. It is also the beginning of the Lake Superior Northwoods Region of the Great Wisconsin Birding & Nature Trail.

Burnett County is home to some truly unique wineries. Known for their organic and homegrown spirits, Clover Meadow Winery and Whitewolf Distillery is a must stop in the Bashaw Valley region of the County. Nestled among some of the oldest forests in Wisconsin, their orchards produce sustainable, eco-friendly organic wines. In Danbury you’ll find a new addition, Tommy’s Too High Wines, crafting small batches perfect for any occasion.

Hoping to try your luck at one of Burnett County’s casinos? Stop by St. Croix Casino Danbury for a full-service experience with dining, gaming, entertainment and lodging.

Burnett Dairy Cooperative is a farmer-owned cooperative just east of Grantsburg. Founded in 1896, it is one of the few remaining full-service cooperatives producing cheese today, and is a key piece of our community. The cheese store features the finest cheese, wines and more. Stop in for lunch at their in-house delicatessen and then head to the ice cream counter for a sweet treat of fresh-made ice cream.

Further north, just off County Road A in Webster lies one of our best kept secrets, Sacred Grove. Featuring a labyrinth 60 feet in diameter, Sacred Grove is a quiet and spiritual retreat. With a sign reading “No stress-passing,” the space is open to anyone looking for a bit of a reprieve from the stressors of everyday living.
