Ambroson Recreation Area

Formerly a rest area, this multi-use complex now contains a mixture of uplands and wetlands, providing excellent wildlife habitat. Located along the Winnebago River, and containing 21 acres of ponds, this area is especially popular for fishing. Fish include northern pike, largemouth bass, catfish, and bluegills. The area also serves as an access point for the Winnebago River Water Trail.


Located 3 miles north of Forest City on Highway 69


There is a shelter house with a charcoal grill on the West side of the river- perfect for a family outing!
