    I keep hearing about that area in Wisconsin ( or is it Michigan ?) and I don’t know what it is, or why it’s called that. I would like to know why it’s called the Driftless region.

    Can anyone tell me?



    I’ve usually heard the term in reference to Wisconsin and it was because the area lacked “drift” which is an archaic word for the material left behind by glaciers – boulders, gravel, etc.

    As a spring creek nut, it’s on my bucket list.

    Thanks Grs. I thought it was filled with streams that didn’t have much of a flow, almost still water. Low flow, hence driftless.

    I couldn’t find anything that nailed it as simply as you just described it.

    Thank you.
