The Community - Portage
Centrally located, Portage residents enjoy the best of both worlds--peaceful, small-town living with easy access to several major cities. Four-season recreational opportunities surround this peaceful city. During the summer residents enjoy fishing, golfing, boating on the Wisconsin River, and swimming at Silver Lake Beach. Also, for those outdoor enthusiasts, the Ice Age Trail and the Wisconsin River Levee Walking Trail both offer beautiful scenery. Once the leaves start turning red and gold, thoughts turn to curling, hockey, skiing, tubing, and snowmobiling. Skiers in Portage are lucky to have Cascade Mountain just four miles from town. A short 35 mile drive to Madison.
