Today, Crawford County draws visitors from around the region to enjoy boating and fishing along the Mississippi River, kayaking and canoeing down the Kickapoo River, apple picking in the area’s prolific orchards, and visiting the historic sites that provide a glimpse into the early years.

 

Panoramic views bring nature to the forefront, showing off the riverside bluffs, native prairies, and the beauty of the Driftless landscape, unscathed by glaciers,

Tourism is a major economic driver in Crawford County, and outdoor recreation is among the biggest attractions. Fishing tournaments draw anglers to the Mississippi River while the slower, picturesque Kickapoo River is a hot spot for kayakers and canoeists as they paddle along the winding waters
