Devil's Lake State Park Current conditions


The State Highway 12 construction around Baraboo is complete. A couple of local roads to the park have been renamed as well. So be prepared for changes.

Trail closures

A section of the Johnson Moraine Loop trail between the park amphitheater and the Steinke Basin/Uplands Trail loops is closed. Hikers may get to the Steinke Basin area by using part of the Ice Age Trail north of County Road DL. Mountain bikes are now allowed only on the Uplands Trail Loop.


Reservations are highly recommended for any summertime camping trips and for spring and fall weekends. Call 1-888-WI-PARKS or go online to make reservations, up to 11 months ahead of time.


Anglers 16 and older must have a valid fishing license, and also a trout stamp if fishing for trout.

Nature programs

Check the Get Outdoors! Online Calendar, or peruse a bulletin board or the park newspaper when you arrive.


Concession stands are open, offering various boat rentals, ice, food, snacks, coffee and espresso drinks, some camping supplies and hot food. All boat rentals come with life jackets and either paddles or oars.
