Parks and Recreation
The Village of Shiocton has many sights to see & outdoor things to do. The Village of Shiocton has 3 parks within its limits with a multitude of different activities. We are proud of the amount of park area we have considering the size of the Village. We also have Bamboo Bend right on the river.
We also have a new addition, a 2 handicap fishing piers behind the Village Hall parking lot. The village helped with cutting down trees and clearing brush along with rip rapping while Shadows on the Wolf had the piers built. They have gotten quite a bit of use already. There is also a new handicap pier east of Bamboo Bend near the Welcome to Shiocton sign.
Lake Park is the largest park within the Village of Shiocton and also the most versitile. It is located off of Park Avenue on the east side of the village.
We have a pavilion that can be rented for activities and events for $100.00 a side with $25.00 returned if everything is cleaned up. There are two sides to the pavilion so there is an excellent chance of getting the date you want. Picnic tables are in each side with each side also having their own small kitchen area with plenty of plug ins. Bathrooms are shared by both sides.
There are two ball fields that the Men’s Softball League built. This allows the Men’s Softball League and Shiocton Summer Sports to conduct summer sporting activities and tournaments.
There is an excellent playground area that is easily accessible to the pavilion. Along with a swim at your own risk swimming pond for those hot hot hot days.

Thank You to The Shadows on the Wolf for making this possible!!
Bamboo Bend has a unique feature all its own. During the middle end of April if you hit it just right you just may get to see a Sturgeon. People from all around the state come to see the Sturgeon roll on the rocks. We have even had people as far away as Russia visit. Bamboo Bend is located at the intersection of State Road 54 and Old 54 Road.
If you would like to be on our Sturgeon viewing email list call the Shiocton Village Hall at (920)986-3415 or email the Village Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org. At Sturgeon viewing time each year we will email you to let you know when the best time to view them is.
