Lake Wissota State Park Current conditions


Park trails are generally dry and in very good condition.


The camping season is in full swing! We often have availability during the week but we are regularly fill up on weekends so it is a good idea to make a reservation if you plan on staying a Friday or Saturday evening.


The park is dry and many flowers in our prairie are ahead of normal and going to seed already. There are still a few species that are in bloom. The dry conditions have also shortened the blackberry season this year.

Species of birds we have been seeing or hearing include scarlet tanagers, indigo buntings, towhees, ravens, rose-breasted grosbeaks, robins, red polls, a variety of wrens, phoebes, turkey vultures, flickers, pileated woodpeckers, great blue herons, barred owls, osprey, bald eagles and belted kingfishers. The Canada geese have finished molting and the young are flying.

Anglers have had mixed results for many species, but fishing for catfish has been consistently productive.


Please use the self-registration station to register for vehicle admission stickers when staff members are not present.
