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.

My wife and I took a day last week and visited our favorite state park. Was wonderful hiking the bluff trails and hearing the ice on the lake groaning and cracking. There were several ice fisherman on the lake and with the sun out was a great day. Now there is snow on the ground, we plan to cross country... More

We love coming to Devils Lake where the water is crystal clear and the air is fresh. The entire experience was gratifying.

With some of the more spectacular rock formations in the midwest and a scenic lake all a short drive from Madison, it is little wonder this is a popular park. Unfortunately, the heavy traffic has taken its toll on the place. Some of the "trails" are actually paved with asphalt, and the campgrounds/recreational facilities have undermined the natural feel of... More

This state park is like none other! The hiking and the lake are amazing. There is all sorts of hiking for each type of person, all the way to the person who wants to climb the rocks with climbing gear. This is a very family friendly park, and if you want to know about the ecology in that area, the... More

We drive here from Milwaukee a couple of times a year for the hike around the lake. There are several trails with different levels of dificulty. How much scrambling up rocks, natural steps, etc do you want this time. One visit gave eye level views of eagles from the bluff. The last hike was two times around th lake, each... More
