Wyalusing State Park is a 2628acre Wisconsin state park at the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers in the town of Wyalusing, just south of Prairie du Chien. Wyalusing means "home of the warrior" in the Lenape language spoken by Munsee-Delaware Indians who settled in the area in the 19th century after being displaced from farther east. 500ft bluffs dotted with prehistoric Indian mounds look out over the river valleys. Two park resources have been recognized nationally: the Wyalusing Hardwood Forest is a National Natural Landmark and the Wyalusing State Park Mounds Archaeological District is on the National Register of Historic Places.GeologyThe park is in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin, a portion of territory that remained ice free during the last ice age, while land to the east and west was crushed by glaciers. The high bluffs along the Mississippi River and the large deep canyon of the Wisconsin River are evidence of glacial meltwaters reshaping this region.

  • The park is has a great atmosphere and perfect view of how the history should blend in with the nature. I stayed at a group site with my BSA Venture Crew 158 and the site was perfect. It wasn't on top of others but wasn't more than a few meters from the nearest one. The views were spectacular and the amenities were amazingly kept and clean. It did appear that the family camping was a little compact but given the amount of land to use, I would waive that. All in all, great park!
  • We are seasoned campers & have never been to a campground with such beautiful views!! Well worth the 4hr drive!
  • One of Wisconsin's best state parks. Amazing vistas, challenging hikes (and easier hikes) and even canoeing.
  • Quiet few volleyball and basketball courts. Beautiful bluff view and a lot of hiking trails. Park kept in a good shape.
  • Great State Park. It has a lot very interesting hiking trails, some of them with great vistas. It also has a canoe trail, camping grounds, and picnic areas. All very clean and well maintained.
