1- Copper Falls State Park
Copper Falls State Park provides a one-of-a-kind escape into one of Wisconsin’s most spectacular settings. Because of its vistas, it is ranked as Wisconsin’s best state park.
This 3,000-plus-acre state park in northern Wisconsin is home to ancient lava flows and gaping canyons. Copper Falls, Brownstone Falls, and Red Granite Falls are three huge waterfalls that drop through lava gorges constructed millions of years ago.
The gorgeous park actually has it all: waterfalls, a lake, and hiking and bike routes. Swimming and fishing are two of the many water-related activities available.
2- Devil’s Lake State Park
Devil’s Lake State Park is one of Wisconsin’s most gorgeous sites all year, with year-round activities. Devil’s Lake State Park’s 30 miles of hiking paths will transport tourists back in time.
Kayakers, beachgoers, and campers flock here in the summer to enjoy the two big, sandy beaches with picnic spaces and hundreds of campsites.
The nature center is a great place to learn about the history of the area. Enjoy the hiking and bike routes with panoramic views at any time of year.
3- Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
The shoreline, known as the “Jewels of Lake Superior,” consists of 21 islands of unspoiled mainland coast. The lakefront provides year-round recreation: you may fish, boat, or dive most of the year, and you can also hike or tour a lighthouse at any time.
Visitors can also stay at one of the many campgrounds located inside the park’s limits, but spaces are limited. While the summer is probably the most popular time to come, the winter offers a distinct experience that should not be missed.
4- Wyalusing State Park
Wyalusing was one of Wisconsin’s earliest state parks. The park, which overlooks the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers, has something for everyone to enjoy. If you’re fortunate, you could see bald eagles, beavers and hawks.
Wyalusing offers a diverse range of recreational activities. Hiking and canoeing pathways allow visitors to explore the park.
The Native American burial mounds are the most notable feature of this Wisconsin state park. These ancient mounds have been carefully maintained and await your exploration.
5-High Cliff State Park
High Cliff State Park is the only state-owned recreation area on Wisconsin’s largest lake, Lake Winnebago. High Cliff State Park, named for the towering limestone Niagara Escarpment, provides no shortage of breathtaking vistas.
Whatever you come to appreciate, don’t miss the 12-foot statue of Winnebago Indian Chief Red Bird overlooking the lake. The park is open all year. You can go exploring, bicycling, hiking, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, swimming, and camping all year.
