Fall colors scenes are shown Oct. 4, 2022, at Swamp Pond on South Post at Fort McCoy, Wis.
Fall colors typically reach their peak in mid-October each year on post.
Located on the installation's South Post, the Swamp Pond Fishing and Recreation Area has plenty of space available for anglers and picnickers alike.
Swamp Pond is a 4-acre waterway that is stocked annually with more than 1,100 rainbow trout and also has brook trout, bluegill, largemouth bass, and black crappie.
The lake’s maximum depth is 14 feet, and the area around the lake is mostly accessible from shore.
The area also includes a pavilion with a picnic table and a large handicapped-accessible dock for fishing.
Fort McCoy was established in 1909 and its motto is to be the “Total Force Training Center.”
Located in the heart of the upper Midwest, Fort McCoy is the only U.S. Army installation in Wisconsin.
The installation has provided support and facilities for the field and classroom training of more than 100,000 military personnel from all services nearly every year since 1984.
