SAUK CITY, WI (WTAQ) - There was a lot of interest last fall, when the state DNR allowed motorists to spend a day touring the former Badger Army Ammunition Plant near Sauk City.

Another round of free tours will be offered on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tour maps are available on the DNR’s Web site, accessible at Wisconsin.Gov.

About 1,100 vehicles took the tour last October, to see what’s expected to be a massive state recreation area. The DNR owns about 3,800 acres of the Badger Ammo site, which has been designated as the Sauk-Prairie Recreation Area.

The ammunition plant was closed in 1975, soon after the Vietnam War ended.
