Welcome to Waterford Wisconsin

Settled in mid 1800 as the easiest place to cross the Fox River, it quickly became the place to stop, eat and rest for travelers of all types.

Nestled between Milwaukee and Lake Geneva, Waterford is still the best place to cross the Fox, with plenty of reasons to stop. Stay for a martini, or have a burger and a beer on the deck, while taking in a Fox River view. Select from various cuisines for a relaxing meal. Enjoy a farmers market or live music in Village Hall Park on a summer eve, right next to the river. Watch in amazement as the skies of July fill with hot air balloons of every shape and size. Take part in an August moonlight run through the Village or enjoy a leisurely game of golf.

Be adventurous and explore 1100 acres of navigable water with your canoe or kayak. Fish Tichigan Lake in your boat or fish the Fox River in your waders. If you’re more interested in the surface of the water, you’ll find skis and feet during the day and the reflection of fireworks at night.

Stop. Look and Listen. Not for the train, but for the unique combination of community and wildlife, development and wetlands.

Whether you are walking, running, biking or boating, there are plenty of reasons to stop for the day or stay for the weekend. But, with most services and amenities in walking distance, the largest library in the area and a superior school system, you might stay for a lifetime.
