Juneau County
Outdoor Recreation Plan
2012-2017 & Draft 2017-2021

The Juneau County Outdoor Recreation Plan (ORP) is done every five years to identify essential outdoor recreation needs that affect the future of outdoor recreation in the County.

Submission of this report to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources establishes eligibility for the County and local units of government to apply for a variety of Federal and State Aids.

Non-profit groups, foundations, and the general public may also use this document to coordinate their own private efforts for developing outdoor recreation facilities.

Juneau County's Land, Forestry & Parks Department is updating this 5-year Outdoor Recreation Plan (ORP) in 2016.
