Crawford County is home to unique and rugged people who are proud of their tranquil landscape neighboring the Mississippi River. Wooded bluffs boarder the Kickapoo River and offer an easy float for a canoe or kayak through the Driftless landscape.
Crawford County is a place of local festivities, reenactments, and heritage festivals. Visitors may find roadside stands of locally grown produce and freshly picked apples that offer the real flavor of the region. In addition to orcharding, dairy manufacturing and goat cheese production is popular, as well as pasture-raised meat production in pork, poultry, and goat. The county’s hunting and fishing lifestyle is complimented by retailer Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shop while also supporting the distribution needs of Fortune 500 industry innovator 3M Manufacturing.
