Fox River Water Trail

Fox River Water Trail

Opened in June 2016, the Fox River Water Trail improves access to Kenosha County’s largest river. The 11-mile section of the Fox River 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 many 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.
