Sugar River (Wisconsin)

Sugar River (Wisconsin)

The Sugar River is a tributary of the Pecatonica River, approximately 100 mi (160 km) long, in the U.S. states of Wisconsin and Illinois.

It rises in the hills of southwest Wisconsin, in southwest Dane County, approximately 15 mi (25 km) southwest of Madison. It meanders southeast, past Paoli and Belleville where it is dammed to form Lake Belleview. From there it meanders east of Monticello where it is joined by the Little Sugar River and flows south through Albany, and Brodhead. It crosses into northern Illinois flowing past an extensive area of the Winnebago County Forest Preserve system. These preserves are Sugar River Alder, Colored Sands, and Sugar River. The river joins the Pecatonica River in northern Winnebago County, approximately 5 mi (8 km) south of the state line and approximately 15 mi (25 km) NNE of Rockford.
