Wisconsin's #1 natural vacation destination

If you appreciate the outdoors, plan to spend a day away from the crazed Dells at beautiful Devil’s Lake State Park.

About 25 minutes south of the heart of the Dells, 10,000-acre Devil’s Lake State Park is the most popular state park in Wisconsin, with more than 2 million visitors annually. The park is famed for its 1.6 billion-year-old quartzite cliffs, which rise more than 500 feet skyward alongside the lake.

Some 22 miles of hiking trails wind up and down the bluffs and through the park, including 10 miles of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. There’s also a campground, two spacious swimming beaches, mountain bike trails and cross-country skiing trails.

No worries if you don’t own watercraft; the park offers canoe and boat rentals,

What Makes Devil’s Lake Unique

Interestingly, Devil’s Lake supports scuba diving, which is quite popular here. In addition, rock climbers say the park offers some of the best climbing in the Midwest. There are 1,800 identified routes here, and guiding companies will help newbies.

Heed This Advice

Stay on the marked trails! The park contains a lot of enormous, interestingly-shaped boulders that lure people off the trails. Almost every year, someone steps off the trail and slips and falls. Sometimes, the result is a serious injury. Or death. No view is worth it.
