Interstate Park Current conditions

Conditions as of Monday, April 10, 2017:

Trails

Spring is definitely here in the park with warm sunny days over the past week. Most of the trails should be dry, but there will still be a few areas that may be wet or muddy.

The Pothole, Summit, Echo Canyon and River Bluff trails are all great for taking in the scenic beauty of the St. Croix River Valley.

Events

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

  • Nature Story Time: Every Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Ice Age Center.

Nature

The Ice Age Center bird feeders have been taken down for the year due to continual raiding by black bears. Eagles, geese and ducks have all been seen in the river and lake. The great blue herons are back and staking claim to nesting spots. Bluebirds have been seen checking out bird houses as well.

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 campgrounds are open on a first-come, first-served basis. Campers should register for campsites at the Ice Age Center during the week or the front office on weekends. Campers are required to self-register if the office is not open.

Water has been shut off in the campgrounds but is still available at the Ice Age Center, the group camp hand pump, and at the old office building.

The dump station is closed for the season.

Facilities

The small park office as you enter the park will be open on weekends for stickers and camping registration. Please register for camping and pay for park stickers at the Ice Age Center during the week. If the Ice Age Center or front office is not open, please self-register.

Ice Age Center hours vary, please call in advance to ensure that the center will be open before you arrive. 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

Both the Lake O’ the Dallas and the St. Croix River are free of ice. Anglers have been out fishing with mixed success.
