Fall in Wisconsin: The Perfect Way to Rest & Recharge


Many visitors consider the fall season to be among the best times to visit Southern Wisconsin’s Elkhart Lake. Spending fall in Wisconsin combines all the enjoyment of the season with many extra perks! For starters, Elkhart Lake quiets down significantly during the fall months. So, if you are craving a long, tranquil retreat, you might find that autumn is the perfect time of the year to visit us!  From autumn events to beautiful fall foliage to lakeside fun, our guide will take your Elkhart Lake vacation to the next level. 

Three Sensational Ways to Enjoy Fall in Wisconsin 

September Weekends on Elkhart Lake 

There’s no better way to welcome fall in Wisconsin than with a trip to Elkhart Lake! Southern Wisconsin is the perfect place to spend the long weekend enjoying beautiful views, refreshing wooded trails, and unforgettable moments. Although the summer is over and the weather is cooler, there is still much to enjoy at The Osthoff Resort! From live music at the Osthoff Lake Deck to the Farmers & Artisans Market, your holiday weekend will be nothing but relaxing.  

Admire the Best Fall Colors in Wisconsin  

If your ideal version of leaf-peeping comes with a bit of driving, take a road trip down the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive. Gain access to wildlife, scenic vistas, streams, and more with a 115-mile drive through the northern and southern units of Kettle Moraine State Forest. As the leaves turn to brilliant oranges and reds, fall is the perfect time to tour this beautiful stretch of Southeastern Wisconsin.  

Local-tip: Climb Parnell Tower to see the changing leaves from the highest point of elevation in the Kettle Moraine Forest.

Attend a Festive Fall Event 

One of the most magical parts of autumn is attending all the harvest-themed events! We’re a little biased, but we think Southern Wisconsin has some of the country’s best fall events. Here are just a few of our favorite happenings to experience this time of year: 

Fall in Love with The Osthoff Resort
