    Sturgeon Trail and Spawning

    Half mile long paved trail along the Wolf River, just west of New London on Highway X. It’s a great place for fishing or leisurely walks. The Mukwa Wildlife Area is on the opposite side of the road. Also, view Sturgeon up to 6 feet long, spawning for only a couple of days in early spring after the water temperatures have reached approximately 53°-59°F.

    Contact the New London Tourism office to request an automated phone call each year: (920) 982-5822.

    Sturgeon Shuffle

    Join us for the Sturgeon Shuffle each Spring! Presented by First State Bank, the Sturgeon Shuffle is a family-friendly 5K walk/run and a 10K competitive road run open to all levels of athletes. Named after the spring “sturgeon run”(spawning season), both events kick off from New London Middle School and are fully chip-timed (start and finish), taking participants on an out-and-back course on County Highway X along New London’s beautiful Wolf River.

    Proceeds raised from the Shuffle will benefit backpack programs in our community and region including:  Project Backpack New LondonProject Backpack Waupaca (serving Waupaca, Manawa, Weyauwega-Fremont, Iola-Scandinavia, and Amherst school districts), and the Compassionate Connections Center Nutrition Mission in Clintonville. These organizations are working hard to stamp out hunger in our schools. 

    Join us in your journey to good health and know that your steps are helping to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities too!
