Plan Your Visit
Nestled in the center of Wisconsin, at the crossroads of Highway 10 and Interstate 39, the Stevens Point Area offers ample outdoor recreation, an impressive arts and culture scene, local craft breweries, great restaurants and more.
Covering more than 800 square miles in central Wisconsin, Portage County offers a blend of urban and rural dotted with small communities. When Stevens Point was first founded in 1858, the logging industry and trading posts defined the location. With help from the Wisconsin River, the railroad, and rich soil, the area continued to prosper. Today the region is home to 27 municipalities with a population of more than 70,000.
