Norskedalen (Norwegian Valley) is a picturesque location just south east of La Crosse in Coon Valley. It includes "over 400 acres of wooded coulee, goat prairie, springs, creek and fields, crossed by miles of nature trails".  Also onsite is the Bekkum Homestead, which features the original log buildings built by Norwegian immigrants to the region.

There is a fee and they have designated open hours so check their visitor's page for the latest rates and schedule.

Two of the historic buildings at Norskedalen. One is small and grey and the other is taller with red siding on top.
