Glacier Hills County Park
An excellent example of a glacier moraine with rugged terrain, wooded trails and picturesque views of Holy Hill. Glacier Hills County Park, originally developed as St. Amelians Orphanage Youth Camp, became a Washington County Park in 1976. The park consists of 140 acres of land and includes approximately 1200 feet of frontage on Friess Lake. The park is excellent for bird watching and features rustic cabins, picnic areas, hiking trails, snowmobile trail access, fishing, sledding hill, play fields, basketball court, play equipment, sand volleyball & a swimming area.
A large wedding hall and chapel are also onsite for those looking to get married in this gorgeous park in the heart of the Kettle Moraine.
Overnight guest have the option of renting the former ranger house through VRBO (www.vrbo.com) which has a full kitchen, living room, 1.5 baths, and 4 bedrooms. Or stay in one of the newly renovated lakefront rustic cabins as of this year, which were originally built back in the 1920’s. These rustic cabins give a whole new name to the ‘glamping game’ for a weekend getaway with friends and family!
