Explore and enjoy almost 30,000 acres of rolling hills, lakes, forests and grasslands that were given to us a mere 15,000 years ago, during the Ice Age, when our area lay under the grip of colossal ice sheets. It is said that nowhere is the glacier's mark upon the land more impressive than in Wisconsin, namely the Northern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest.

Park highlights include the Henry S. Reuss Ice Age Interpretive Center and Parnell Tower. The Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive and the Ice Age National Trail also run through the forest.

The forest provides relaxation and recreation throughout all four of our glorious seasons. Summer provides picturesque camping, biking, hiking, fishing or swimming at one of our three beaches. Fall in love with our colors as your meander through our winding roads during the autumn season. Winter provides excellent opportunities for skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. Then watch as the forest comes alive during the spring season.

Pets are welcome in Wisconsin State Parks but must be on a leash and under control at all times. Certain areas may be off-limits to pets. Visit our website for more details.
