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.
Devils Lake’s campground is a well situated campground within the park. I have only been able to camp there once after trying close to 10 times. This park tends to fill up months in advance and Reserve America requires a two night minimum during the high season. If you are able to lock in a site it will be well worth the effort however book well in advance if you plan on staying there.
The campground is close to great hiking and lake activities. The restroom and showers were clean.
The views are great and has a nice beach. Clean park
