Mirror Lake State Park is a 2,179-acre (882 ha) Wisconsin state park in the Wisconsin Dells region. The process of establishing the park began in 1962 and the park officially opened on August 19, 1966. It contains Mirror Lake, a narrow reservoir with steep sandstone sides up to 50 feet (15 m) tall. The lake has a surface area of 137 acres (55 ha) and an average depth of 10 to 14 feet (3.0 to 4.3 m). Recessed out of the wind, the water of Mirror Lake is usually calm and often as glassy-smooth as a mirror, hence the name. Situated in a major tourist area, the state park has an extensive campground and other visitor amenities. Also located within the park is the Seth Peterson Cottage, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building available for public rental.Planning Baraboo trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
Mirror Lake State Park reviews
We hiked to Pulpit Rock, Echo Rock, the Fern Dell Trail & the Ishnala Trail. They were all interesting & enjoyable but we Liked Echo Rock/Ishnala Trail the most. You can watch our videos from Mirror..... more »
was on my way home from a nice road trip and stopped by to take in the amazing view and atmosphere! walked around a bit and stretched out. more »
Very nice park! The water in mirror lake is cold!! Perfect for a hot day. Campground is huge! Looks like there is plenty of great views. Kayaks seem to be very popular. Clean plenty of area to spend time hiking to!! All around a great place
The lake is gorgeous and all the trails we took were stunning! Being able to rent a kayak and get right out in the water from the park was a huge bonus (as opposed to going there from nearby, like some parks) and we loved being able to see the park and the cliffs from the water! We saw an eagle fly over head, a giant turtle, quite a few ducks, and so many dragonflies!
