Find Your Voice at the ‘Screaming Rock’

Roche-A-Cri State Park

Roche-A-Cri State Park was founded in 1948 to protect a stunning natural area that contains Native American petroglyphs and pictographs etched into the base of a 300-foot bluff. Its name comes from French for “screaming rock,” which feels like a rite of passage when you’re standing at the top.

Dyracuse Recreational Park

If you find yourself in northern Adams County during the riding season, there’s a good chance you’ll hear the roar of two-stroke and four-stroke engines reverberating from Dyracuse Recreational Park. Spread out on more than 700 acres just south of Rome, the park features a sand bowl, mud bog, supercross tracks and trails for riders of all levels.

Adams-Friendship Fine Arts Center

The Adams-Friendship Fine Arts Center provides a venue for students to learn, perform and display their art, in addition to professional entertainment for the community. Created through a partnership between the Adams-Friendship Area Educational Foundation and Adams-Friendship School District, the facility promotes art, education and entertainment for all ages.

Sand Valley Golf Resort

Sand Valley Golf Resort is home to three one-of-a-kind courses that carry their own unique history. Built on what was once an ancient glacial lakebed that covered much of Central Wisconsin, its sandy dunes and valleys were sculpted from a massive flood more than 15,000 years ago.

Quincy Bluff and Wetlands State Natural Area

The rock formations at Quincy Bluffs and Wetlands State Natural Area provide a window to the same landscape ancient cultures once looked across. From atop the 200-foot sandstone mesa of Lone Rock, all you can see is wilderness in every direction – not a man-made structure in sight.
