Property: Fish Camp County Park
Project Status: Active or in Progress
Schedule: Fall 2021, Anticipated Completion
Dane County Parks is planning to install an accessible kayak launch at Fish Camp County Park. The accessible launch will replace one of the existing fishing piers on the Yahara River. The accessible launch at Fish Camp will complement upstream landings at McFarland’s Jaeger Park and Babcock County Park that provide access to the stretch of the Yahara River from Lake Waubesa to Lower Mud Lake and Lake Kegonsa. See the Yahara Water Trail Guide, page 36 for more info on this stretch of river.
Dane County Parks is partnering with the Foundation for Dane County Parks, Madison Fishing Expo, Wisconsin Fishing Expo, and Access Ability Wisconsin to develop system-wide improvements at county lake access sites. Improvements will create and enhance access to fishing and boating opportunities for all ages and abilities. For more information about the partnership project including additional project locations please visit the Accessible Fishing & Boating Improvements webpage.
