Wisconsin State Park System Straight Lake State Park
Park Development: Development of Straight Lake State Park has started. When complete, there will be 10 walk-to campsites, vault toilets, picnic areas, an accessible fishing platform on Rainbow Lake, a shelter, and a hike-in/cart-in boat launch. The area where construction is occurring is closed to public use to ensure public safety and to ensure that construction stays on schedule. Because of this, access to the park will be limited to to the parking lot on 280th Ave.
- The park is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
- The state park is adjacent to the state wildlife area, providing over 4,000 contiguous acres at Straight Lake.
Straight Lake is about 12 miles northeast of St. Croix Falls. Take State Highway 35 north through Luck or south from Frederic in Polk County. Straight Lake is about 3.5 miles east of Highway 35 via 270th Avenue.
