Dellwood WI is located in Strongs Prairie Township north of County Road J but the Dellwood subdivision & developments area located south of Cty J in Quincy Township on Castle Rock Lake.  Home to Northern Bay Golf Resort & Marina…

ABOUT: “Dellwood Subdivision” is right by Castle Rock Lake with some waterfront and deeded access lots located in Quincy Township of Adams County in Wisconsin.   This LARGE Adams County Real Estate Development has lot sizes mostly under ½ acres. Dellwood is just North Adams County Park and South of Northern Bay Golf Course. Because Dellwood is an older subdivision there wasn’t much for protective covenants allowing everything from camping, single wide mobile homes, cabin, A-Frames, residential homes and half a million dollar lakefront log homes. Many of the lots are too small for today’s standards to build on, so you normally need 2 to 3 lots to build.  Strongs Prairie Township also features 50 miles of horseback riding trails and thousands of acres of public land owned by Wisconsin River Power Company who built Castle Rock Flowage back in the 1940’s.
