Nelson, WI.
 
Nelson is located at the junction of Highways 25 and 35 and connects Wisconsin to Minnesota by the interstate bridge over the Mississippi River.

Nelson offers fine restaurants, gift shops, a cheese factory and liquor stores. Castleberg Park has a shelter perfect for picnic lunches.

Next to the village is an area that is three miles wide and 10 miles long - of virgin forest and water, practically untouched by civilization. This area, known as the Tiffany Bottoms, is a sportsman's paradise. This huge section of backwater adjoining the Mississippi has thousands of acres of woods where deer abound. Walking trails and canoeing are available.
The Nelson Bottoms has every kind of fish, bird and animal and provides some of the nation's best duck shooting each fall.
As for fishing, the walleye in this area are fabulous. The northern run up to "muskie size," the biggest large-mouth bass lie among the lily pads and this has long been known as the "home of the small-mouth bass."
