The Kettle Moraine State Forest Northern Unit

The Kettle Moraine State Forest Northern Unit in Wisconsin is only 40 minutes from Fond Du Lac, 45 minutes from Milwaukee, and 50 minutes from Sheboygan. The park is 30,000 acres and stretches across three counties. It was formed 20,000 years ago when two glaciers collided, and then receded, forming kettles. These kettles can range in size, from small ponds to large lakes.

The topography in the region varies widely, containing many hills and valleys that were carved by the glacier.

The park has over a dozen lakes and small ponds, and 8 of them are large enough to support fish populations year around. Expect to catch bluegill, crappie, largemouth bass and more. Hiking, biking and horseback riding is also enjoyed by visitors.
