Beautiful State Park with Ample Amenities

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.

Fabulous camping / Hiking Summer Escape

Camping here is awesome, loved swimming, kayaking, hiking and biking. Friendly staff and hosts.

Great hiking on lake

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.

One of my favorite places in Wisconsin!!

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. 

Great Campground With Everything You Need!

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.

So beautiful!

Awesome park, beautiful lake! Great trails of varying difficulties

Great hiking!

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.

Beautiful woods

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.

Everybody must see

A hidden gem that will challenge you

Wisconsin’s most visited State park. Great trails and views.

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,
