About Fox Bluff Conservation Area

The Fox Bluff complex includes woodlands, wetlands, fens, wet prairies and 3,530 linear feet of shoreline along the Fox River. The topography is steep with varying slopes and ravines. The northern portion is currently open to the public for hiking and access to the Fox River. In 1910, Jens Jensen, the well regarded landscape architect, was hired to produce a plan for the grounds of Camp Algonquin.

The southern section is the former 116-acre Camp Algonquin.
