Perrot State Park Current conditions

Conditions as of Friday, Feb. 24, 2017:


Cross-country ski trails: We received about 4 inches of heavy wet snow which is already melting and settling.  All of the trails are snow covered but there is not enough snow to groom the trails. 

Reminder: Hiking, snowshoeing and pets are not allowed on groomed cross-country ski trails.

Snowshoe/Hiking trails: The trails are all snow covered but you may find puddles or snow on top of ice so watch your step.  Trails open for hiking and snowshoeing include the Riverview trail, Black Walnut, West Brady’s, East Brady’s, and Perrot Ridge.  Maps are available at the park office. Maps are available online [PDF] and at the park office.

If you are interested in renting snowshoes, please call ahead to make arrangements at 608-534-6409.


See the DNR events calendar for a list of events at Perrot and all state parks.


The campground is now closed to vehicle traffic. Reservations for 2017 can be made by calling 1-888-947-2757 or online.


The dock has been removed for the season. Water levels along the Mississippi River and in Trempealeau Bay have returned to normal.

Please remember that ice conditions can change from place to place and from day to day. Park staff do not monitor ice conditions, thickness or safety. You must use your own judgment in deciding about venturing onto any ice. Tips on staying safe on ice.


Owls have been heard at twilight near the nature center.  The pileated woodpeckers are often seen in the area around the East Brady’s and Perrot Post trailheads.  Trumpeter swans have been seen in the Trempealeau River just below the Nature Center and the eagles are flying over the open water of the Mississippi River and Trempealeau River
