Welcome browsers to our website. Waters Edge Motel, Marina and Campground is located on the picturesque backwaters of the majestic Mississippi River.  Our motel, cabins, camping, vacation home, stationary houseboat, and marina are unique choices that provide an opportunity for balance in your life. You can find us in Stoddard, Wisconsin, just 7 miles south of La Crosse.

If you have never visited Western Wisconsin, you will be awestruck by the beauty of the timbered Driftless Region's bluffs, respectful of the power of the Mississippi's shipping channel,  and enchanted by the still backwaters hemmed in by the area's rich farmland. We are an ideal getaway for families, people who enjoy fishing, hunting, or anyone looking to relax in the quiet atmosphere of a small town. Watch a spectacular sunset, while listening to an artesian well tumble into the Mighty Mississippi River.

Fishing the Mississippi River for elusive walleyes, monster catfish or tasty panfish is often the priority for our visitors.  There are many other opportunities to enjoy and experience our scenic area and you will not have to look far for something to do.  Many activities are found right at Waters Edge and others nearby. Although dependent on weather and season, the list seems almost endless:

 

Whether your goals are to experience the awakening of a new day on the Mississippi River, enjoy the quaintness of rural Wisconsin, meet friendly residents and travelers, taste local flavors, or try new outdoor activities; we will do our best to help you find what you are looking for in our backyard.  We want to leave you with a smile on your face at the end of your stay and you may be fortunate enough to find a renewed spirit and refreshed mind and heart.
