Located in the northeastern corner of Wisconsin, Oconto lies on the spectacular shores of the Bay of Green Bay. With a population of just over 4,500, Oconto is just a quick 30 minute drive north of the bustling City of Green Bay. Oconto is considered by many to be the start of the true Wisconsin Northwoods, but still has access to the amenities of larger cities. Situated between dense forests, beautiful wetlands and stunning shorelines, and with more than 33 sites on the National Register of Historic Places, you’ll see right away why Oconto is “History on the Bay.”
If water is what you are after, look no further. Whatever water adventure you’re searching for, we have a spot for you and your boat! No matter what type of watercraft you may have, come on out and enjoy the waters of the Oconto River and Bay of Green Bay. With three launching facilities located throughout the city, you’ll be sure to find the right one for you and your family.
For canoes, kayaks and flat bottom boats, you’ll want to launch at Holtwood Park. If you want a two-for-one deal, head to City Docks, where you can experience a short trip down the Oconto River. Go to Breakwater Park, where you’ll find six boat ramps, 51 slips and quick access to the Bay. From here, sail or jet away to Door County, Michigan, or the City of Green Bay. Bring your fishing pole and you will soon find out why we are the unofficial Walleye Capital of the World!
