Feeling a bit overwhelmed by the number of people at beaches like Pewitt’s Nest, Dells of the Wisconsin River or Peck’s Landing? Head over to Sauk City. A beautiful, smooth river walk trail runs along the Wisconsin. Park along Riviera Street or take Polk Street to find nice, open sandy banks. You can also access the shore through the August Derleth Park, though the banks are far steeper and often crumbling.
