Devils lake has a plethora of activities swimming trails scenery etc. It is easy to spend the day here or even camp overnight. Plan ahead. The crowds here can get thick and the parking can look like the mall on black friday. If you can make a week day visit you may have a better time. A realistic idea if... More

We live near this park and visit frequently. It has many hiking trails, nice beaches, plenty of picnic areas,and playgrounds. It also has a lot of options for camping. The park is very busy most weekends in the summer so visit during the week if possible.

Whether you enjoy hiking, picnicking, swimming or cross country skiing, Devils Lake is a wonderful place.

We go a few times every year! Great hiking trails, a fun picnic area and nice place to just hang out. We buy the annual pass and it is totally worth it.

The couple that we knew reserved a building on the beach and did the outdoor wedding thing. Perfect! It was catered and we had a ball. There was a little photobombing, however all was good and I look forward to coming back and doing some hiking and swimming.

Snow decorating the bluffs. People ice skating on the lake. Cold nip to the air. Always able to hike at the Lake.
