While in Chippewa Falls it would be worthwhile to visit Lake Wissota State Park, just north of the city. The park is open all year round and features many recreational opportunities on huge Lake Wissota. Visitors can fish, swim, canoe, or kayak in the clear water or ice skate and ice fish in the winter.
Nestled in the heart of apple orchard country, Autumn Harvest Winery has been creating wines by combining the hobby of wine making to the already existing orchard of a family business. Proudly celebrating their 10th anniversary, Autumn Harvest has something unique to offer wine lovers. The crisp apple taste of a glass of their wine is distinctly Wisconsin. Bring the whole family for fun in the outdoors as the orchard offers wagon rides and apple picking as well.
Come and stay a while in all the natural beauty and relaxation that Chippewa Falls has to offer!
