“Cross country skiing paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I spent a Saturday cross country skiing and it was fabulous. The trails were well groomed and made for everyone. There are trails of all difficulties and lengths. The park personnel were extremely helpful. This is the place to go in the Dells area. Don't miss it.

“A natural escape in the Dells”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed snowshoeing at Mirror Lake Park this weekend. We tried the Wild Rice Trail hoping to see bald eagles,but did not spot any. We really enjoyed the loop near echo rock very scenic right along the river. There were lots of xcountry ski trails that were groomed.
In summer there is opportunities for hiking; canoe,kayak and pontoon boat rentals. The park also boasts the unique Seth Peterson cottage, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It canbe rented out . It is open to be toured the second Sunday of each month.

“Great hiking and beach area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We go hear every summer for picnics, hiking, and swimming. They have several picnic areas that are first come first serve with lots of picnic tables.

The hiking trails are nice and varied. While hiking we have encountered many deer that were only a few feet from us as well as many birds.

The beach area is nice and well maintained. The water to the area is river feed so don't come expecting crystal clear water. Although the water is not terrible just go with the right expectations. If you are into canoeing there is also some nice areas and inlets that are fun to canoe into.

Overall a pretty nice park, with friendly staff, and an enjoyable family experience.
