“Awesome Fall Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

While i usually do not enjoy seeing folks when i hike and explore, it was wonderful to see families and folks of all ages, traversing the paths and enjoying the beautiful fall foliage in Wisconsin! There are a multitude of paths to walk and hike on, with a variety of views and different levels of difficulty. The path we enjoyed was about two miles up and culminated (for us) at Devil's Bluff. The path is worn and the tree debris can make some of the boulder paths very slippery, but a good pair of walking shoes and a good attitude, make the journey fun!
There are some cool spots to belay as well!
if hiking is not for you, there are canoes that may be rented and swimming beaches.

“Great Hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Devil's Lake State Park has some nice hiking trails. They have easy, moderate and difficult trails so there is something for everyone! The hike up to balance rock is very cool because yoru hike is literally up the face of the rock wall.

“Don't let our friends to the south keep you out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

It’s obvious to everyone that Devil’s Lake State Park in a gem. For years we’ve avoided camping there because the weekend congestion. Last summer we decide to go there anyway. We found it to be very enjoyable. And it really is one of, if not the best gem that Wisconsin has to offer.
