Ferryville is a little village with a population of 176 in Southwestern
Wisconsin. In 1912 the citizens received from the state a charter
incorporating the community as a village. It is located on National
Scenic State Highway 35 between Prairie du Chien and LaCrosse
Wisconsin. We are located on the Mississippi river at mile marker 658.1
which is the river mileage distance measured from Cairo, IL. where the
Ohio River joins the Mississippi. The village is at the foot of beautiful
bluffs that rise some 600 feet above the mighty Mississippi. Ferryville is
at rivers edge and is an excellent area for hunting, fishing and water
sports. The village is proud of the slogan ‘A Sportsman’s Paradise’.
Ferryville is also associated with the term ‘A Place for All Seasons’.
The entire area along with being a sportsman’s paradise is a
motorcycle riders dream due to the hills, valleys, curves and just pretty
scenery. Within the village is Sugar Creek Park, which has camping
facilities, electric hookup, lavatories, and playground equipment. Also
located within the village are boat launching facilities, which were
rebuilt in the summer of 2003 and includes two Handicapped accessible
ramps and docks.
We may be a small village but we have plenty of friendly people and
lots of beautiful scenery.
