New Lisbon is located on the beautiful Lemonweir River in central Wisconsin. According to Indian Folklore, the area now known as New Lisbon was used as a winter location for hunting and trapping. During its heyday, New Lisbon was a bustling center for railroad activity, providing service for industries as well as passenger service.

New Lisbon is a great friendly quiet place to launch your fun filled vacation. Plenty to do and explore with fishing, boating, hiking, cross-country skiing, ATVing and snowmobiling.
