Great for hiking and camping

Clean with lots of parking,I always have a state park sticker, but worth the price of admission if you don't. Nice beach, and picnic areas when you arrive. Trails are not too difficult, lots of families. Be careful if you hike later, dark comes quickly and moonlight won't penetrate heavy tree cover. Lots of rock steps, could twist an ankle,... More

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. A warning though is that it gets very crowded on Saturdays and during the day on Sundays during the summer. Weekdays and weeknights are heavenly. I've been coming to Devils Lake since I was a child, and currently live two miles from the park... More

We stopped here on the way home from Michigan and stayed in the camping area. The entrance, grounds and drive around the lake were lovely, but the campground facilities were only okay. the table was fairly rotten, so we couldn't use it and the shower facilities near us were barely usable. We would stay again for convenience, but not because... More

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.
