This 1,417-acre quiet and friendly natural gem is located near the beautiful spring-fed Chain O' Lakes. Year-round camping. Hellestad House Log Cabin, Whispering Pines day use area on crystal clear Marl Lake on the upper "Chain." Tucked away in the Chain O' Lakes/Waupaca area is a pleasant introduction to off-road riding on glacial terrain. At Hartman Creek State Park you can ride on the leavings of the Green Bay Lobe of the last great continental ice sheet. As that glacier melted, it revived several times; pushing forward again and again, it left a series of debris-strewn ridges called recessional moraines. These moraines make for gentler riding than you'll find on other glaciated terrain. Still, they share the rolling character that make riding this type of landscape so much fun. The mix of pine, oak and maple forest add to the experience. The prospect of a post-ride swim in Hartman Lake doesn't hurt either. 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.
