Devil’s Lake State Park has three campgrounds with a total of 423 sites that each accommodate a family (One to six individuals). There are only 10 first-come-first-serve campsites. They are located in the Quartzite campground. There are also nine group campsites that can accommodate a total of 240 campers for Devils lake Wisconsin camping. Group campsites are on the south side. Each campground has different qualities that have made each of them popular with annual campers. There are no campgrounds near or on the shoreline of Devil’s Lake itself.
Founded in 1911, Devil's Lake is the third oldest state park in Wisconsin, the largest and the most visited. LocationDevil's Lake offers magnificent views from 500-foot quartzite bluffs overlooking a 360-acre lake. Enjoy lakeshore picnic areas, sandy swimming beaches, 29 miles of hiking trails or ease into the backcountry solitude. Devil's Lake is a beautiful year-round park with an intriguing natural history along the 1,000-mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail.
We love Devil's Lake! It has incredible views and is absolutely breathtaking in the fall. It is also wonderful in the summer to go swimming and hike around.
We've never camped overnight here, but have taken many trips to hike around. With it only being 45 minutes from Madison, it's a great day get away!
Only drawbacks to Devils Lake are the crowds. It's popular (and for good reason!) so I would suggest hiking earlier in the day to avoid the larger crowds of people. I would also avoid going there when the mayflies have hatched because it can be unbearable.
Camping here is awesome, loved swimming, kayaking, hiking and biking. Friendly staff and hosts.
Open pad sites for tent camping under tree canopy, great hiking over looking swimming and boating lake. Requires WI St Park pass to get in plus camping fees. Has both vault and flush toilets w showers. Close to town for other activities, near Wi Dells Water park 21 ,miles not a bad drive.
Part of the ice age trail system maintained hiking trails are great.
I come here at least once a yr when I get the time. I have spent 3 birthdays at Devils Lake and can't wait for many more.
Devil's Lake is a must see. It is beautiful! The water and beach are lovely, the hiking and sights are gorgeous. The campsites are not the most private, but we've never had issues with bad neighbors or anything of the sort, and we have been going here for the past 30 years.
Awesome park, beautiful lake! Great trails of varying difficulties
Some of Wisconsin’s best hiking! Everything from challenging climbs and beautiful vista views, to casual strolls. The sites are a little crammed in there and reservations can go out pretty far in summer but that’s typically of the crown jewel state parks. Great amenities anyway.
Small trails on the ice age site. The spot was really popular on a Monday so it’s not always a place for peace and quiet but still some solid woodland scenery. Every site has a table and a fire pit with assorted restrooms so you have all you need for simple camping.
A hidden gem that will challenge you
The park has just started same day reservations, to allow the “rare” cancellation sites to be filled the sites are reserved months in advance.The area has numerous privately owned campgrounds if you can’t get a site in the park. It is well worth a visit,
