Brown County's Leaf Cam Now Available Online

September 15, 2016

It is that time of year again. With the first official day of fall right around the corner, the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau is proud to announce that its ever popular Leaf Cam is officially up and running! After much anticipation, the Leaf Cam has been carefully placed to provide a stunning view for visitors.

Capturing the ever-changing show of the leaves as they don their bright autumn colors, visitors can tune in to the Leaf Cam for a daily look at Brown County’s famous fall foliage. This year, the Leaf Cam is back and better than ever. In fact, it is completely new!

Providing picture perfect images, the new Leaf Cam is designed to capture crisp, clear footage. This year, visitors will be able to experience Brown County’s beautiful foliage in all its glory thanks to the crystal clear shot generated by the new camera system. With its auto-adjusting capabilities and high-tech lens, the new Leaf Cam will provide a better look at the leaves from sun up to sun down. The new Leaf Cam also will refresh every minute, perfect for capturing all the shades of fall and even some wildlife.

Designed by Bloomington, Indiana-based Blockhouse Audio and Video Production, Brown County’s new Leaf Cam is guaranteed to please, providing a real-time glimpse into Brown County’s most beloved season.

With autumn just in reach comes the Brown County Visitors Center’s most asked fall question: “When is the peak time for the leaves to change?”

If only we knew! Pinpointing an exact date or even week that the leaves will reach their full color potential is easier said than done. Weather plays a major role in the changes each year, so as the weather is never the same, the time of year the leaves change always varies. Typically, the second and third weeks of October are peak times. However, a wonderful array of color as early as late September stretching into the beginning of November can still be seen.

Tune in and watch the show for yourself on the new and improved Leaf Cam! Experience Brown County’s famous foliage and see if you can predict the peak of the leaves this fall. The Leaf Cam can be found online at, as well as on the Discover Brown County app.

Also, be sure to check out the Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Blog for an Insider’s Guide to Fall. Designed to help make visitors’ autumn getaways to Brown County as enjoyable as possible, the guide will be filled with fall travel tips, answers to hot visitor questions, and a few off-the-beaten-path activities for guests to try. The Insider’s Guide will be available on on September 22, the first official day of fall.
