State Park Nature / Park
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.

  • Being from out of state, it's not cheap to stay here when you have to pay for the site, parking and all else. But... it was worth it for sure. We stayed on the Wisconsin Ridge in one of the walk-up si...  more »
  • Beautiful park and stunning views of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers. Be sure to go to the Passenger Pigeon Monument. Some of the camp sites have spectacular views.
  • What a great park! We saw eagles while kayaking. My only complaint is that the shower facilities on the homestead site are currently closed.
  • Gorgeous property situated on bluffs overlooking the confluence of the Wisconsin River and the Mississippi River. Camp sites share that Vista as well as various overlooks along the bluffs.
  • I come here every year in late april for the Dairy Roubaix! The place is beautiful. Come visit. Camping is awesome and there are very few bugs and its not too hot in the spring!
