Attractions

The Bottoms

524th St and Dunnville Rd, Menomonie

Half the fun the Bottoms offers is in finding it. When you do make your way through the winding dirt trails wide enough for a single car, and slither through the beat-down path, you find yourself in a virtual oasis. It’s got an extensive beach full of rocks and chilly water to cool you down in the heat.

The cave is accessed by a series of steps and ramps that allow you to descend 70 feet underground where your journey follows well-lit, graveled trails. The cave temperature hovers near 50 degrees, so a sweatshirt is recommended. See contact info for admission costs.
