Waupaca County is a friendly and comfortable place to live, conduct business and enjoy nature in the woods and waterways of Wisconsin. We are proud of our schools and growing health care facilities. The King Veteran's home, a foundry and medical center provide employment opportunities for our residents.

We extend our invitation to you: Come for a visit, stay for a lifetime. Waupaca is approximately 4 hours from Chicago or Minneapolis and 2 hours from Madison or Milwaukee by car. Outagamie County Airport (Appleton's Fox Valley area) is just 30 minutes away or travel to and from Green Bay's airport which is approximately 45 minutes away. Waupaca is on the Hwy 10 corridor between Stevens Point and Appleton and is home to commuters in both directions.




The quality of life beckons people to call Waupaca home. It is also a great area for recreation with the natural beauty, northwoods appeal, and central location. It is the perfect spot for those looking to stay away from the more high-traffic destinations such as Wisconsin Dells and Door County. It's easy to find your way around whether biking the rustic roads or boating to an outdoor dining experience.

Unmatched scenic beauty, vast opportunity for hunting and fishing, recreation and relaxation, the famous Waupaca Chain O’ Lakes area is just part of the 240 lakes in the rolling woodlands of Waupaca County. In addition are 79 rivers and 35 trout streams—-an angler’s paradise. The woodlands are a mecca for hunters, especially deer. Drive our winding State Rustic Roads, Amish country, quaint villages, or our farmlands to understand why we call this home. We invite you to enjoy our scenic area and friendly residents!
