Welcome to Sauk Prairie!
The community of Sauk Prairie is actually made up of the villages of Sauk City, and Prairie du Sac. These two villages border each other with Oak Street, which is the road to the south of the River Arts Center. While Sauk Prairie is essentially one community, you'll find two post offices, two libraries, two fire departments, and street names will change across Oak Street. We are served by a single police department, and the Sauk Prairie School District, which also serves the village of Merrimac, and many townships in the area.
