Ferryville is a little village with a population of 193 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.
