Mauston finds you surrounded by natural wonder, wildlife and has a rich variety of outdoor activities. The city of Mauston is located next door to Wisconsin’s second and fourth largest lakes, Petenwell and Castle Rock Lakes. Other natural features that surround our area include the Dells, multiple rivers, Indian effigy mounds and the Necedah Wildlife Refuge. Mauston also has a rich rural history with access to diverse agricultural experiences from cranberry bogs to dairy farms to apple orchards.

The city’s beginning was based on the lumber industry of early Wisconsin. Mauston’s unique name originally was Maughs Town, named after its founder Milton M. Maugh. Incorporated in 1887 with a population of 1,857, the city today has a population of approximately 4,500 maintaining its rural character. However, the city does benefit from its central location, for instance, it is the Juneau County seat. Mauston is often referred to as the halfway point between Chicago and the Twin Cities.
