We stayed at Devils Lake in early October 2020, and camped within the Upper Ice Age campground. We stayed at site 479 with friends, and had plenty of space for three tents. It seemed that all the sites were booked, however, our site still felt private enough and distant from nearby campers.
The scenic trails did not disappoint, as we spent most of our Saturday hiking along the north shore which led us to the beautiful “Devils Doorway”. With Devils Lake being such a popular destination, it was no surprise that the trails were very busy and crowded at certain points.
Overall, we absolutely loved our weekend at Devils Lake and cannot wait to be back again. There’s a reason this is considered one of Wisconsins most popular camping spots!
Wow, Copper Falls has quickly jumped to my number one state park experience in Wisconsin. I’ve lived in Wisconsin my whole life and did not expect such beauty in this northern part of the state.
We decided to camp at a walk in site (#49) and this site will absolutely be our preferred site for future bookings at Copper Falls. The walk in sites are obviously more secluded but the size and views at our site were amazing! Additionally, #49 is the first of the walk-in sites and is closest to the small parking lot and bathrooms at the bottom of the hill. The staff also provided carts for you to haul wood or belongings up to your site.
The hiking trails were breathtaking! The views of the waterfalls were amazing and again, unexpected for Wisconsin. The trails themselves were well maintained with fencing/handrails lining the cliffs and rock paths. Super easy hike but there are lots of stairs!
Needless to say, we will be back!
We made a last minute camping decision and booked the very last available site at Roche-a-cri and were very happy with our experience!
We camped on site 40 which was very flat so it was easy to find a position for the tent. The sites are small but practical and offered a nice bench in addition to the picnic table.
The hiking trails were very well maintained (we did the Acorn trail) and it was a beautiful hike. Sadly, the petroglyphs and stairway to the top look-out were closed due to COVID so we weren’t able to take in the beautiful view from the top that others have shared in their pictures.
The park ranger that went around to each site to check everyone in was very friendly and added to an overall nice experience!
This campground is beautiful! The hiking trails and the lake were very nice. Showers and bathrooms were extremely clean and well maintained. Our campsite, #92, was a little bit of like/dislike experience.
What we didn’t like was how slanted the site was. We struggled to find a flat-ish part to put our tent and ended up having to sleep on a slant. We also moved the picnic table like 20 times just to try and find a spot that it would sit flat.
What we loved about our site was how private it felt. We had to walk downhill into the lower part of our site which was nice because it was far from the road. Our site was also next to an opening in the woods which was filled with deer throughout the day. At night it was beautiful to walk into to look up at the stars.
Nice campground with nice hiking trails. Our campsite was huge, bathrooms were decent, and it was really quiet. The only thing that was a little annoying was how often the park rangers drove by.
I’m originally from the High Cliff area and spent a lot of time at the park growing up. It wasn’t until last year that I had actually camped there and it was a nice experience. We took our pup and she absolutely loved the hiking trails and opportunities to jump into the lake. We also enjoyed hiking up the lookout tower and watching the sun set over Lake Winnebago.
