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,
Weekends are pack with campers. The beaches have hard pebbles and rocks.
If you want privacy, some spots are better than others. There are a lot of wide open sites with no trees or vegetation, so it’s like staying on someone’s yard with a bunch of strangers. That said, this is a beautiful park. Lots of cool trails and the lake is perfect for canoeing and kayaking. Showers were very nice and the warm water lasted a long time. Nice playground right next to the shower so the kids could play while we showered.
