Everywhere visitors go in West Wisconsin they are reminded of what it was like to live in the 19th century. Rich Lake was a thriving logging camp in the 1850s, and visitors can see what life was like for the lumberjacks of old at Pioneer Village, in Barron County. Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Little House on the Prairie books, was born in Pepin County and her legacy lives on at the Little House Wayside and the Pepin Historical Museum. The region is sparsely populated but offers a wide variety of outdoor activities. Interstate State Park, in St. Croix Falls, was Wisconsinís first state park and it is only one of many parks littered with trails for hiking, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. The Mississippi River, which divides Wisconsin from Minnesota in the south, is one of thousands of rivers and lakes in the area. Washburn county alone has over 900 lakes making hunting, fishing, camping and canoing a popular pastime.
