Welcome to Sparta, Wisconsin
Sparta is the county seat of Monroe County, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of western Wisconsin. Once known for the healing powers of the local artesian springs, Sparta is now most recognized as the junction of the Elroy-Sparta and La Crosse River bike trails. Sparta's claim as the "Bicycling Capital of America" is based upon the first rail bed in Wisconsin to be converted to bike trails between Sparta and Elroy. Sparta is also recognized for our proximity to Fort McCoy, the largest Military base in Wisconsin. Hunting and fishing opportunities abound in the area as does award winning golf at River Run Sparta Golf Course. Sparta is home to many unique shops in our historic downtown district and world recognized manufacturers in our growing business parks.The quality of life in Sparta is second to none. Come for business, come for pleasure, stay for a lifetime.
