Wyalusing State Park where the Wisconsin River feeds Into the Mississippi River
2628 acre park at the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers in the town of Wyalusing, just south of Prairie du Chien. Wyalusing means 'home of the warrior' in the Lenape language spoken by Munsee-Delaware Indians who settled in the area in the 19th century after being displaced from farther east. The park is in the Driftless Area of WI, a portion of territory that remained ice free during the last Ice Age, while land to the east and west was crushed by glaciers. The high bluffs along the Mississippi River and the large deep canyon of the Wisconsin River are evidence of glacial meltwaters reshaping this region.
