A very nice spillway in the Kewaunee River that is adjacent to Bruemmer County Park. The river runs through the C. D. "Buzz" Besadry State Fish and Wildlife Area which is adjacent to Bruemmer County Park. A nice area to visit... they have an exhibit building with rest rooms and there are trails throughout the area. The Wisconsin Ice Age Trail also runs through the County Park and Wildlife Area. The Park and Wildlife are just west of Kewaunee. From Kewaunee take Ellis Street (Route 29) out of downtown Kewaunee to the west edge of Kewaunee where Route 29 turns south... continue straight onto County Road C for 1.5 miles, then turn left onto County Road F; follow F for 0.4 miles and turn right onto Ransom Moore Lane to the Wildlife Area.
We regret that we have not been able to find additional waterfalls, rapids or spillways in Kewaunee County... please, if anyone has details about a waterfall, rapid or spillway that we have not documented, please contact us so it/they can be included.
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help. www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed. Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level. To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc. Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
We also use Google Earth. It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/. Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested.
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info. Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
