Interstate Park Current conditions

Trails

There is a small amount of snow in the park but most of it will melt in the coming days. Please use caution on the trails this time of year as wet conditions and leaves can result in slippery spots, especially on rock surfaces. The Skyline Trail provides some great views this time of year if you are looking to try a new trail.

Events

Interstate State Park events and nature programs are listed on the DNR Get Outdoors! Calendar.

Nature

The rut is in full gear at the park with several different bucks chasing the many does in the park.  Camp Interstate, south campground, and the river bottoms picnic area are all good places to see deer if you are looking at taking some pictures. Geese, migrating ducks, and a beaver can be seen on the lake and on the St. Croix River.

Camping

Don't move firewood!

Don't move firewood!Due to the potential of carrying harmful tree pests and diseases, Wisconsin has restrictions for moving firewood.

All campsites are still open, but water has been shut off in the campgrounds. Water can found at the Ice Age Center, at the old office or at the hand pump in the group camp. The dump station is still available for dumping only. The gates to the north and south campground will be closed when a plowable snowfall occurs.

All campers need to register at the office before setting up on a campsite.

If the office is not open when you arrive to camp, please self-register at the park office kiosk for a campsite.

Ice Age Center

Visitors needing to purchase park stickers or register for camping can do so at the Ice Age Center. The Ice Age Center is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Hours vary during the week. Please use the self-registration box located at the kiosk in front of the Ice Age Center to purchase stickers or a campsite when the Ice Age Center is closed.

The Ice Age Center has exhibits about the Ice Age and a 24-minute movie about the Ice Age Trail, which can be viewed upon request. Accessible restrooms and a gift shop, firewood and ice are also available at the Ice Age Center.

River and lake

The St. Croix River and the Lake O’ the Dalles are both ice free. Anglers have been reporting some success for crappies on the lake.

For information on St. Croix River conditions, please see the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway website [exit DNR].
