Visited Devil's Lake State Park on a very nice day in early May. I decided to start hiking at the trailhead closest to the park headquarters after the railroad tracks on the right, which is called the East Bluff Trail. In the beginning it was fairly easy, but eventually you have lots of carved out rock steps, many of different... More

Walked along the railroad tracks and back . We went up the balancing rock trail and found great views of the lake and area. Larger lake, but trails not as well kept. Balancing rock trail appears to have been built by CCC.

I went to have a walk at the Devil's State Park with some friends. As soon as We got there, my soul changed totally. I felt inspired by the natural environment and the big stones. You can clearly feel and sense the trees, the brunches and the soil warm by the big sun. Beside, it is easy, and sometime challenging... More

This state park is breathtaking. The lake is surrounded by rocky cliffs. We did the east bluff trail which offered several great views of the lake. It was a bit buggy (but thats nature) so make sure you wear your bug spray!

What an awesome adventure into the geological significance of the Mid-Western glaciers that carved into the Baraboo Hills millions of years ago. Devil's lake is great for a one-two day family vacation. Don't have children? Bring your fur babies instead. Devils lake allows dogs to hike most of the trails. However, the steep bluffs during a hot day can be... More

My son and I had a wonderful, but strenuous, 5 mile run through the park. A great loop is taking both the west and east bluff trails, ending with a dip in the lake for a great cool down.

Devil's Lake State Park has something for everyone. Great scenery, hiking, boating, swimming, among some of the options. I remember when I was a kid I learned how to windsurf on the lake. Hiking to the top of the bluffs provide great views, and checking out the rock formations are also some of the favorite features.

This was my first trip ever to this state Park. I can see why many say it is their favorite in the state. Very beautiful views. Trails are a good workout as well. I will definitely be back.
