Lovely. Many trails, you can hike all day from beach to scenic overlook. Some driving may be required between major locations. It’s one of my favorite places I’ve been so far!! Life is beautiful when you’re outside.
Made the 90 minute drive from home during a rare kid free weekend. This park pretty much has it all: tons of hiking from challenging for very fit people, to gentle walks, lots of playgrounds for kids, beaches for swimming (with showers), clean restrooms, plentiful parking, observation towers, history, and geography. It was an awesome way to spend an afternoon. We started with the Lime Kiln trail. Approximately a 2 mile hike that is flat and easy if you stay on the lower portion near the water, and turns into something very challenging but spectacular if you take the upper at the base of the Niagara Escarpment. I love running the ice age trail, and this was challenging but well worth it. The face of the escarpment was majestic and something to behold. From here we walked up the trail to the observation tower. It was a paved path, maybe a third of a mile long but up a moderate slope. The climb was worth it, the observation tower was maybe 50' tall, on top of the escarpment which affords tremendous views of the neighboring landscape and Lake Winnebago. Lastly we took a drive up to the Indian Mound trails for a gentle walk. It was a bit underwhelming, but offered new landscape and beautiful views. We probably only saw about a fifth of what the park has to offer. There were many more hiking trails and amenities we didn't get a chance to experience. We'll eventually be back next time we have a full day to kill.
This is a stunning state park in Wisconsin! The trails we took was the lime kiln trail which was super easy but so very beautiful. If we had more time we would have gone down more trails. Will be back for sure
This is a huge park that has many beautiful trails with limestone cliffs, waterfalls, and ruins. The beach is clean, lots of private areas to picnic and on overlook that you can climb to see the surrounding area. It has a nice docking area for boats and is surrounded by a beautiful golf course. So much to did them as an individual or a family. There's area for children to play on the playground and a bird 🐦 habitat area with nesting boxes. Campgrounds available! Have fun!
Dog friendly state park! Love to bring my pups here, they even have a designated section of the beach for dogs to play in the water. Has a good boat launch as well that's included with the day pass or annual state park pass! This is one of my favorite places to come!
