Blanchardville’s location means you get to experience all four seasons, from 100 degree summer days to -40 degree winter nights. In between those extremes are cool and crisp autumns and warm and sunny springs. Everyone in the town knows everyone else, but it is true. Everyone is extremely friendly and respectful, and they will always help you with anything you may need.

Blanchardville is in the lower half of the driftless area, which is an area in the midwest where glaciers never went over the land. That means rolling hills, winding rivers, and clear lakes are almost everywhere. For someone who loves both kayaking and hiking, Blanchardville is pretty much heaven. The town is located at the intersection of the Pecatonica River and Gordon Creek, both of which are great for kayaking and fishing, and Yellowstone Lake state park is a short ten-minute drive out of town.

With a population of just over eight hundred, Blanchardville, Wisconsin, is the classic midwestern small town: in the middle of nowhere, small, and lots of beautiful scenery. Blanchardville is the only town of its size in the area to have a municipal pool, which helps attract people from the surrounding areas to visit the town. Blanchardville has unique quirks like the park that floods twice a year, or the multiple un-marked dead-end roads that confuse visitors, or the multiple abandoned gas stations where no one seems to know what caused them to be abandoned.
