  • I've been to the Baraboo/Dells area plenty of times but this is my first time visiting this park. Very nice park. Beautiful trails, all marked accordingly. ( Easy, moderate, hard) Didn't get to see mu...  read more »
  • This park is close to the WI Dells and is a nice place to get outside in nature a bit. The hikes are pretty easy. Some go near the lake. Nice picnic areas, beach, playground near the beach. The lake i...  read more »
  • Beautiful lake and very relaxing. Enjoy the trails and sit by the lake for a break. One of the best places for cross country skiing in the winter. Such beauty on the outskirts of the Dells. 
  • This wonderful campground would get five stars but when it's quiet you can just hear the highway traffic in the far distance. Personally it's not a deal breaker for me. The little beach is great for kids, the water looks like an algae filled pond, but it's cool and refreshing. It's filled with trails connecting all the sites with the lake area. You can rent canoes, kayaks, pontoons, and paddle boards. There is a nice little pier for fishing and some really nice hiking trails that are not too long for the kiddies. The sites are spaced out nicely so you don't have to listen to your neighbors. I would definitely go again.
  • This camping area has a lot to offer; great trails, showers, playgrounds and a nice beach/picnic area. My only complaint was the traffic noise particularly at night. We stayed at site 50, it could have been the spot but it looked far enough away on the map from the highway. Personally, the consistent noise from traffic is enough to keep me from wanting to return. Sure, earplugs can solve the problem but, if you also enjoy the natural sounds of the forest night as part of your camping experience- I'd look for a more secluded alternative.
  • I love this state park. This is a very pretty park because it has so much to do. It has cliffs,sandstone walls and even a beach. We ran into this park when we went to Wisconsin Dells which is a huge water park. Mirror lake covers 2000 acres of scenery including wildlife,picnic areas,boat landing and whatever else you enjoy outdoors. During the season you can enjoy renting boats,Skiing,Skating,rent bicycles, canoes and kayaks in season. You are welcomed to bring your pets as long as they are on a leash. The park is open everyday from 6am-11pm. If you need to visit the office you can go between 8am-4pm daily. They have extended hours during summer for the camp ground which they have full amenities.
  • The park is very pretty with good trails. But, if you are from out-of-state looking for a nice stop-over for one night - this is expensive! Out of state camping fee is $35, then you need to pay another $12 for a day pass for the park. At this cost, you can just as well go to a KOA. Some of the camping sites are odd - one drive with two sites. This means that you are literally on top of your neighbor. It didn't help that our neighbor seemed to really resent our moving next door!
  • Car Windows smashed, car ransacked and purse stolen while hiking at this park for just 45 min. Park ranger took a statement but did nothing, said this happens often in this area and they have had quite a few of these situations. Theif watches from a hidden area, you leave and bam, your burglarized, and violated. Now, if you know this is a problem at your park why wouldn't you put up signs stating this??? Also, security cameras are cheap and effortless to install. And to top things off only one ranger covering security for this whole park. I will never visit this park again!
