We visited for our third time in April, 2017 for off-road buggies. This is a must do and the price is very reasonable. The Brown County terrain is great for this activity, and it's simply beautiful land. The guides are very knowledgeable of the area, and there are some very cool historic settlements, cemetery, etc. We had group of four... More

Slow speed and mostly even terrain provided a neat experience riding an all terrain vehicle through a wooded forest with nice hilltop views, centuries old building remnants.

Imagine zip lining over the spring woodland landscape! This well-designed course takes you over a lake and trails under the canopy of trees. Jenn and Janelle know their sport and we felt completely safe in their hands, even on the Leap of Faith. Step out of your comfort zone, and off the platform for a fun adventure in the woods.

I stayed there for a couple nights with my girlfriend. The campsite we had was great, we opted for one with electric so we could make coffee. The camp dogs Barney and shadow really made the experience for us. The zip lines looked like a lot Of fun!

My husband and I did the zip on tour and had a blast. Our guides, Billy and Shelly, were obviously well trained and skilled as zipliners and they made us feel comfortable and safe. They explained everything thoroughly and encouraged us to relax and have fun! We will definitely go back to Explore Brown County.

We did the Dune Buggy tour first thing in the morning. We did not have high expectations since the last one we were on in Mexico was slow and commercial. BUT THIS ONE WAS AWESOME! Gary was our guide and we went fast and got MUDDY! We did zip lining too which was awesome for my 6 and 8 year... More

Janelle and Billy, our guides, were very nice and patient. One person in our group was not enjoying the experience much but they helped motivate all to do something fun at each zip. Would recommend for all who want an adventure and bonding experience.
