Devil's Lake is absolutely beautiful. The beach is so long, it isn't crowded, even on hot days. The water is clear and peaceful...perfect for swimming, kayaking and paddle-boarding. The hiking is awesome with spectacular views. We loved our visit to this park.

We hiked the east side of the lake and then hiked all the way around the lake. It was about a 5 mile hike. It is very beautiful and very scenic. I highly recommend the entire hike. At times it is a little bit difficult but if you are marginally in shape you'll be OK

I have been visiting this park for 40+ years and I never get tired of this beautiful scenery and hiking on rocks. I was in my early teens on my first visit. I am now in my 50's. I have visited with my kids when they were young and my last visit included my husband who is in his 60's.... More

This place is absolutely amazing. The lake has place for you to tan and go in the water. You can have a picnic and enjoy the outdoors. There were a lot of people when I went, from families with little kids to seniors.

Beautiful State Park surrounding a large lake with miles of hiking trails around it. We were unable to find a campsite with out last minute planning, so we ended up staying in a nearby hotel and coming for the day to hike. We felt we got very lucky that we just happened to park at and start hiking from the... More

This is a gem in the state park system in Wisconsin, which is known for its excellent state parks. It is close enough to Milwaukee and Madison to be an easy ride, yet feels out there in the wilderness. Weekdays are obviously less crowded. Close to Baraboo for supplies and just s short ride to Wisdonsin Dells if you want... More

I hike the east bluff trail two or three times a year and it is truly my favorite. Great views, and only about 3 miles roundtrip. Tons of photo opps. Also, if you want to add a mile to the trip, you can reach some pretty cool rock formations like Balanced Rock. East Bluff is the way to go!

Really nice park on Devil's Lake. Beautiful views, nice trails. Good beach access for swimming. Great doggie beach where you can swim with your dogs! Nice campgrounds and pavilions for picnickers. We'll be back!
