Camping at State Parks ~ Mirror Lake State Park ~ Wisconsin

Have you checked out State Parks for Camping? 

If not ~ you should give it a try. I have found that State Parks  not only have excellent camp sites but that the facilities are VERY clean.  I like to hike and they usually have great hiking trails in the park.


Mirror State Park located just south of Wisconsin Dells is a great park for many activities.
There is a good selection of rustic sites - electric sites and even pull through for the Big Boys.   With my Jeep I like to stay in the electric site section close to the facilities.

The bathrooms are very clean - showers are a nice size and clean. The entire park is well kept - the park rangers do a great job keeping the park looking the best. 

Mirror Lake has a Camp Host for each campground in the park.  We purchased our wood from the Camp Host. The wood was dry and was easy to burn.

The park concession stand near the boat launch sells ice and firewood and also rents boats, bicycles, canoes and kayaks in season - contact the park office for pricing. Great kayaking and boating.  

There are many waterways that make for a very pleasant boating trip. During Winter months there are Cross Country Ski Trails.

#1 - Make sure you keep your cooler with food inside your vehicle. We did not the 1st night! A very smart Raccoon ate everything in out cooler! Cooler in the vehicles from now on.

#2 - Some sites can not be reserved - they are  first come/first get basis.  Make sure to check out your site with the ranger. We called before our visit.

#3 - The sites with electricity are HUGE!!! The picnic table is not even in the pic - it is on the far left top corner in a separate area just for the table.

#4 - Wood cost $5.00 a bundle 

#5 - Walmart about 4 miles away ~ perfect for the odds and ends which can be forgotten when packing

#6 - October Camping can be chilly! October 12th & 13th - temps got down to 29 degrees at night - a bit chilly!

#7 - Each site has a very nice fire pit with a nice grid cooking surface.
