Nekoosa Wisconsin

Nekoosa, WI 54457 is located in the Port Edwards Township of Wood County on State Highway 73 between Wisconsin Rapids and Lake Petenwell.  Nekoosa has lots of frontage on the Wisconsin River not too far from Wood County’s ATV Area.   It’s a city with about 2,600+ people and has a post office, shopping, bars & grills, church, restaurants, shops, riverside park, and a fire station, but more of the larger shopping and health care is found in Rapids. Petenwell Flowage is just south, which is Wisconsin’s 2nd largest inland body of water and attracts fishermen for its fine fishing.  The area has thousands of acres open to the public for hunting, hiking, bird watching, outdoor photography, foraging for berry & mushrooms.

 

Nekoosa comes from “Nakrusa” which derives from the Ho-Chunk dialect meaning “Running Water” due to the sound of the Wisconsin River.  The town is now known for its Timber Industry with the paper mill located here.  Recently Nekoosa has also become well known for its GIANT Pumpkin Festival which has an annual attendance of ??? with some of the pumpkin weigh-ins over 1600lbs.    The festival is held along the Wisconsin River on the Riverside Park; a scenic park of the City.    Just a little bit to the north along the river is Port Edwards and Wisconsin Rapids.
