Pecatonica River Trails Park

The campground is located along the Pecatonica River and Tri-County Recreational Trail.  Ride and enjoy the many sights along the famous Cheese Country ATV Trail and local Darlington ATV Club Trails. Visit Mathys Ace Hardware for your non-resident trail pass, if needed.
Launch your canoe and paddle the Pecatonica River or fish & swim along the banks of the river. Take a stroll along the lighted walking path.  Just sit and relax and enjoy the wildlife along the water’s edge!
Don’t forget to enjoy shopping and eating in Darlington, or travel a short distance to historic Shullsburg or Mineral Point.  The possibilities are endless!
Free parking for daily trail users is available.

Campfire Wood

Please refrain from burning firewood brought from home to help protect our environment from the invasive species EMERALD ASH BORE (EAB).  Some wood may be available on cement by playground equipment. You can also purchase firewood from local vendors.   Let's all try to do our part to help save our environment!


Darlington is located on State Highway 23 in Southwest Wisconsin.
