    Favorite spot. Great hike in the summer. Wear shoes with great grips as coming down the bluff can be slippery. Don't recommend bluff hike while raining or when wet. 500ft quartzite cliffs. Great beach

    Hikers, it's easy to overlook the great trails to the east of the main park area. Be sure to find and hike in the Steinke Basin, & Uplands Trail areas. Read more

    Don't plan on staying overnight. The rooms are straight out of the 80s and haven't been cleaned since then. Don't bother with lessons as most of the staff is unprofessional or sleeping on the job.

    Great for a day trip out a week long camping trip. If you want to camp, make your reservations well in advance. This great park books up fast.

    Must visit in the fall and hike the bluffs. Great views and trails. Lots of out of town visitors so bring your patience.

    Excellent for winter camping. Hike around the lake. Hike all the connecting ice-age trails. Parfrey's Glenn http://www.devilslakewisconsin.com/information-center/other-natural-areas/parfreys-glen/

    Awesome place in the state, especially for swimming. I recommend swimming off of the rocks though. Much funner. But be safe!

    Use fun views to motivate you up East Bluff and enjoy a mostly steady decline down East Bluff Woods Trail.

    Ask around for rock 8!!! Also a perfect sunset spot... It's a formed "rock sofa" on the crest of the south west bluff.

    Stay away from south shore if your wanting to swim. Lots of seaweed appearing and swimmers itch spreading like wildfire. :(

    Head to Jumping Rock on the West Bluff trail along the lake. It's through the second set of trees on the path. It's really fun.

    If this one isn't on your list of muse-see's, it should be. Bring/rent a kayak, and if you have kids, they will love the beach area!

    Great lake to swim in, but the beach is more rock than sand. Watershoes recommended.
