The Florence County Wild Rivers Interpretive and Resource Center features an array of exhibits that tell the interesting history of how a small mining and logging town developed into a thriving rural Wisconsin community. The Interpretive Center opened in June of 1992. It operates through a unique state, federal, and county partnership. We house the Florence County Forestry and Parks, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, United States Federal Forest Service, University of Wisconsin Extension and Wisconsin Department of Motor Vehicles.
There is also a The RV Dump Station and Fenced Dog Park located near the Visitor Center parking lot. The Dump Station costs $10 and offers rinse water and a water yard hydrant. The Dog Park is free for your dogs to run and stretch their legs. There is also a 1 mile walking trail around the Visitor Center. Dogs must be on a leash for this trail.
