Fox River Water Trail
The 11-mile Fox River Water Trail provides access to Kenosha County’s largest river and includes four non-motorized watercraft launch sites maintained by the Kenosha County Parks Division.
The Fox River watershed covers 2,658 square miles around the Fox River extending from Colgate, WI, to Ottawa, IL. The river runs 223 miles with over 1.5 million people residing within the watershed.
The Fox River Water Trail has grown in popularity over the last five years and Kenosha County now is joined with the Village of Waterford and the Northeastern Illinois Water Trails to offer this free recreational service to residents.
Crossing the Fox River into Illinois requires a “Water Usage Stamp” from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Please click on link for additional information:
