Devil's Lake State Park, Baraboo

Hike, fish, and boat in the idyllic setting of Devil's Lake State Park. The lake was uncovered when a glacier retreated many years ago. Walk up the quartzite bluffs surrounding the water and enjoy the view. Head to the nature center to learn about the history of the park and see displays of rocks and artifacts. You'll camp in the conifer forest of the Baraboo Hills. Campsites feature restrooms, and snacks and basic necessities are available at the Ice Age campground. You can rent a boat by the lake and pick up tackle, poles, and camping gear at the stores on the north and south end of the park. The proceeds from the stores go toward maintaining the park.
