  • A part of one of the largest wildlife areas in Wisconsin, the Mead Conifer Bogs is a wet forest reserve and wetland protection site that is dominated by black spruce and tamarack trees. By walking through the sphagnum moss, leather-leaf and cotton-grass covered ground you can see if you can spot a Sandhill crane among the abundance of wildlife in the area. Other seasonal activities include hunting and a 6.5 mile biking trail. From the junction of Highway HH West and S in Milladore, go north on S 6.2 miles to the Wildlife Management Area Headquarters. Get a map and directions to the sites. Three parking areas provide access. To access the western portion: From the headquarters, go south on S 0.8 mile to a parking area on the west side of the road.
