Esofea/Rentz Memorial Park is situated in a beautiful valley setting along the banks of the North Fork Bad Axe River. The park is conveniently and centrally located between the communities of Westby, Viroqua, Coon Valley and Chaseburg just off County Highway B in the Town of Jefferson.
The picnic pavilion is very popular for birthday parties, graduation parties, family reunions and even an occasional wedding. There is a “kitchen” complete with an oven/range, refrigerator/freezer and a long table that is great for potluck type servings. The pavilion is equipped with picnic tables, benches and lights. There is a fire ring nearby for evening gatherings.
The spring pond is stocked each spring by Wisconsin DNR with rainbow trout, making for some really fun fishing for children of all ages during the summer months. The hiking trails are very nice, and are very scenic. One trail is through the forest in the south part of the park, and the other section of trails goes east from the information kiosk located near campsite #8.
