Surrounded by swamps, bogs, and other watery lowlands, the Willow Flowage Scenic Waters Area is isolated from roads and development. This remoteness, along with its natural shoreline, draws visitors from around the state and region. With help from The Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund the flowage now includes more than 27,000 acres above and below the water. Under WDNR ownership, the Willow Flowage will not fall victim to fragmented shoreline development and its scenic beauty will be preserved for future generations.
