Cottonville Rock - Preston Township Wisconsin

Cottonville Rock is located in Preston Township of Adams County, Central Wisconsin just northwest of the intersection of State Highway 21 and State Hwy 13.  This rock formation is not open to the public as the land is privately owned; DO NOT TRESPASS!  The cool thing about Cottonville Rock is that it can be seen from Roche-A-Cri State Park if you climb the 300+ steps to the top of Roche-A-Cri Mound. You can see about a dozen formations from the platform plus there are plaques to help you identify each one including: Minnie Rock, Ship Rock, Cottonville Rock, Rabbit Rock, Dorro Couche Mound, Necedah Mound, Petenwell Mounds aka Petenwell Rock, Quincy Bluff, Rattlesnake Mound, One Mile Bluff and Friendship Mound.

Preston Township WI

Preston Township is located in Adams County, Central Wisconsin just north of Adams/Friendship.  Preston has the only State Park in the County; Roche-A-Cri State Park. The park features Roche-A-Cri Mound which has 303 steps all the way to the top with a lookout platform facing the north with views also to both east and west where you can see the hills of Coloma and all the way to the Wisconsin River Valley. Carter Creek flows through the state park and eventually feeds into Castle Rock Lake, WI. You can see dozens of Turkey Vultures circling the mound on any given day. Directly to the South is Friendship Mound which over looks both Friendship Lake and Friendship Park.

Preston is also home to Big Roche-A-Cri Lake which is about 200 acres of ski able water formed by Big Roche-A-Cri Creek trout stream.  There's also Carter Creek, Deed Horse Creek, Fordham Creek and Bingham Creek which forms Bingham Pond. Besides Roche-A-Cri State Park there's also Remnant Fordham Creek and Remnant Little Roche-A-Cri Creek which is also open to the public for Trout Fishing and Hunting.
