The Rock River is a tributary of the Mississippi River that flows through Wisconsin and Illinois. The river is approximately 299 miles long, originating in Horicon Marsh, Wisconsin, and flowing south into Illinois, where it eventually empties into the Mississippi River near Rock Island. The river has played a significant role in the history of the region, serving as a transportation route for Native American tribes and European settlers. The river is also a popular destination for recreational activities, including fishing, boating, and canoeing. Several reservoirs and dams along the river, including the Lake Koshkonong Dam and the Rockford Dam, provide hydroelectric power and flood control. The river is also used for agricultural purposes, with many farms located along its banks.
