  • We've been going to Nolte State Park for almost 30 years now and still enjoy it. It has a nice hiking trail around the lake and the lake itself it pretty cool. Nice picnic areas.  more »

  • This park is a hidden gem! We went in mid June and there was hardly anyone there! Plenty of open space and picnic tables and the water is wonderful to swim in! The trail around the lake is about a mile and a half, flat and perfect for a hiker of any experience level. I’m not sure if it gets busier throughout the summer but this is a great spot if you want to swim and not be bombarded by people. Definitely going to visit this beautiful lark again!
  • Great place to go, love the lake for fishing and I'm really hot days to take a dip and if you go there early you can take your lab who's obsessed with swimming and take a swim! You can walk around the lake fully around the lake watch Paragon falcons fish better than you mostly. But it's really busy on a really hot day so I like to go on the down time. Did I mention that I live a mile away down the road so it's probably one of my favorite lakes you should come see!
