Prarie du Sac dam sign

Prairie du Sac Interpretive Sign, Veterans Memorial Park, Prairie du Sac
The sign celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Prairie du Sac dam and the dam’s significance to the region. The flow of water through the Prairie du Sac Dam stops the river from freezing near the spillway. It stays open throughout the winter. Bald Eagles flock to the dam to fish and to roost in the bluffs above the river, to the delight of us all.

Paddling Safety on the Lower Fox River Brochure
The Fox River is a wonderful, urban experience that requires respect of its many hazards. There are 17 locks, 12 dams, and many water intakes to be cautious of as the river drops 167 feet in only 39 miles! Water levels change from season to season and with little notice due to rain events. Dam operations can dramatically affect paddle conditions and need to be respected.
