Lake Wissota State Park Current conditions


Park trails are in good condition. The cherry species and wild plumbs are in bloom. The ferns are in the process of unfurling. Miterwort, spring beauty, common and wood strawberry, dog violet, marsh marigolds, trillium, wild columbine, bellworts, and the false rue anemones are in bloom.


Recent rain has water levels rising. Area open water game fish and pan fish action has been moderate with some people doing well and others not catching anything.


Species of birds we have been seeing or hearing include: rose-breasted grosbeaks, loons, robins, red polls, a variety of wrens, phoebes, Canada geese, northern juncos, pileated woodpeckers, and belted kingfishers. The great blue herons, green herons, barred owls, ravens, osprey and bald eagles are on their nests.


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


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