Dodge County

2020 Season - Episode 12

Welcome to Dodge County: a sprawling, peaceful part of Wisconsin that’s within an hour’s drive for most of the state’s population. With three major rivers, including the Rock River National Water Trail, it’s easy to find a launch point for canoeing or kayaking, while a number of trail systems, like the Wild Goose State Trail, Glacial River Trail and Gold Star Memorial Trail, crisscross the county. Located in the northern part of Dodge County, Horicon Marsh is the largest, freshwater, cattail marsh in the country and is home to thousands of plant and animal species. Mariah heads to Waupun, where she makes a few new feathered friends at Marsh Haven Nature Center, before experiencing history come alive at The Octagon House Museum and a performance by the 1st Brigade Band. Marie heads to Beaver Dam, where murals by Wall Dogs artists brighten up the downtown buildings, and Edwin Brix Vineyard, Dodge County’s only winery, opens its doors to the public during the harvesting season. With its charming communities, unique attractions and wide-open natural spaces, Dodge County is an unforgettable destination.
