Dewey Marsh, a 6,000-acre complex of meadows and marshland is located 10 miles north of Stevens Point. It contains a large expanse of relatively undisturbed northern sedge meadow including smaller islands of tamarack and black spruce swamp, paper birch and white pine woods, and ericaceous bog. The marsh is dominated by blue-joint grass, steeple bush and wire-leaved sedges, with cat-tails and bur-reed. It forms the headwaters of Hay Meadow Creek. Scattered throughout the area are islands of aspen, birch, and white pine. Dewey Shooting Range is just one of 24 areas managed by the Portage County Parks Department. This 319 acre area not only has a public shooting range but also is a public hunting area. The Shooting Range is adjacent to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources 6,000 acre Dewey Marsh.
