Stevens Point is centrally located in the state, on the Wisconsin River, at the intersection of Interstate 39 and State Highway 10 in Portage County. We are approximately 110 miles north of Madison, 250 miles northwest of Chicago, and 215 miles east of Minneapolis.
Stevens Point is home to a University of Wisconsin campus, a Mid-State Technical College campus, and Ministry Saint Michael's Hospital. The Stevens Point Area Public School District includes ten elementary schools, two junior high schools, and one high school. Stevens Point also has a number of parochial and private schools.
Perhaps the most famous one of all is the Wisconsin Scenic Ice Age Trail, a continuous 1,000 mile footpath through diverse landscapes that provide outdoor recreation experiences, preserves geological features, serves as an educational resource, provides habitat for the movement of wildlife, provides health and vigor for users, and links history and cultures within Wisconsin.
