FISHING, LILACS &

SPRING FUN

in Alma Wisconsin!

Spring is a beautiful season to visit Buffalo County and Alma, Wisconsin.  Fishing boats are gathered below the dam and the annual migration on the Mississippi Flyway is overhead.  Warmer weather will bring the sweet smell of lilacs.  All of this makes Alma the spring vacation destination of Buffalo County.
