Recreational Resources

Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin's largest inland lake, which is located about eight (8) miles west of the City of Chilton, and the Niagara Escarpment, an important geologic feature that parallels the lake's eastern shoreline, are significant natural resources found in the Chilton area.  The escarpment, known locally as "The Ledge," provides panoramic views across the lake from many locations.

The south branch of the Manitowoc River, which flows northeasterly through the city is the most important natural resource in Chilton.  A dam on the stream behind the central business district creates the 9 acre Lake Chilton, which is seven feet deep.  Small boat ramps at Hobart Park and Leahy Lions Lakeshore Park provide access to the water.  Night lighting highlights the unique design of the dam and creates a memorable focal point for visitors passing through the city.
