Hartman creek is a nice state park. I don't think it ranks in the top ten sate parks in Wisconsin. It's a nice place to spend an afternoon or maybe camp for a weekend. It doesn't , in my opinion, have lots to offer. The hiking trails are short and rather ordinary. The swimming beach is ordinary. I really don't... More

We camped in a pop-up camper during a very cold week in October. We loved the sounds of geese and sandhill cranes, but there was very little SUN in the campground, something we missed during our chilly weekend! There is also no heat in the bathrooms, which makes the nice showers hard to enjoy when the indoor temps are below... More

Our first trip to Hartman Creek State Park in Waupaca was a treat. We lucked out and had beautiful weather with sunny skies and temps near 80 which for the end of September was great and a pleasant coincidence. We wanted to try something different for a late summer weekend camp and pretty much picked Hartman on the strength of... More

We loved the wooded sites and the great singletrack! Bathrooms were ok but showers recently redone so they were nice. Didn't have any contact with the rangers. Lots of great trails and paths for the kids. Very quiet overall. There were a lot of fees though. We paid to camp but still then had to pay for day passes to... More

We brought our "fat" bikes and kayaks and camped in a tent. I had been there before with a group of people and had a good time. I knew there was much more to explore so I came back. We rode the fun single track mountain bike trail; and kayaked on the numerous lakes in the area. On Sat. I... More

A very nice state park with excellent hiking and biking trails in a variety of skill levels. Campground is a bit tight to navigate with a bigger camper as the road is quite narrow and winding. Difficult to get backed into some of the sites as well. But once we were settled in, it was fine. A couple of the... More

This is a lovely park with nice campsites and trails. My husband and I love to bring our bikes to get around the park. It has a waterfront where you can swim, rent canoes, etc. but which we have not used. We have camped here for a few nights each August for the past 4 years and will be there... More

While we prefer more secluded and rugged camping venues elsewhere in the state, we decided to make the 20 mile trip to Hartman--for our new teardrop camper's maiden voyage. There's only a few sites there that interest us-- we got one of those, and since it was in the middle of the week, chances were we weren't going to run... More

The beach is really nice and especially good for kids. There is no rocks and the sand and water is clean. Its about 5 feet deep at the swimming rope which is probably 100 feet out from the shore and the beach area is big. There is a playground at the beach. The park has many trails and the park... More

Arrived at beach for a family picnic and to swim. Was unable to enjoy the beach though because it was covered in goose droppings. My daughter contacted the park ranger. The ranger said they were too short staffed and busy to clean up the beach. Disgusting! Won't go there again until this problem is taken care of.
