What is the Buckhorn Barrens Wisconsin? At the end of the Ice Age, Wisconsin’s Glacial Lake began drastically draining which in turn flooded the Lower Wisconsin River Valley. This area now is considered the Central Sands of Wisconsin. After time, due to the massive flooding, large amounts of sand began to create terraces along river banks. These sandy areas are called Sand Barrens and are home to many rare creatures that you won’t find anywhere else. Sand Barrens have specific types of plants that are able to grow in such poor soil environments as the barrens have. These barrens have savanna-like conditions that provide both habitats and scenic beauty.
Buckhorn State Park is located in Germantown Township of Juneau County, Central Wisconsin on both Castle Rock Lake and the Yellow River. The park consists of about 6,000 acres of outdoor haven offering a little bit for everyone including the local Wisconsin Wildlife.

Buckhorn State Park Wisconsin Sandblow Vista is one of the parts attractions and part of the Central Sands Trail located by the Wildlife Observation Blind. This whole area along the Wisconsin River in both Adams and Juneau Counties was once underwater; part of Wisconsin’s Glacial Lake. Now it’s considered part of the Central Sands also known as Wisconsin’s Desert because of the sandy soil which gets hotter than the surrounding soils. The Sandblow Vista is basically a boardwalk up to an observational deck with two informational plaques talking about the area history and how the sand blows.
