The "Poynette...Naturally" motto describes the recreational and lifestyle options available in Poynette. Located in the rolling glacial hills just south of the Baraboo range and the Old Military Highway connecting forts at Green Bay and Prairie du Chein, Poynette residents enjoy a picturesque setting. Lake Wisconsin (3 miles away), Devil's Lake, and numerous small lakes enhance year-round recreational activity. Wisconsin's #2 trout stream, Rowan Creek, bisects two parks in downtown Poynette.

Less than 2 miles away is the MacKenzie Environmental Center with a natural prairie, hiking trails, an animal park and a facility for environmental education. With the recent addition of a Golf Course and Club House, Poynette is a four season recreation area with all seasons providing a wealth of activities.
