The Friends of Lapham Peak will host the park's annual Candlelight Ski/Hike January 26, 2019 at the Homestead Hollow Picnic Area. Ski, snowshoe or hike by candlelight on a 1-mile (1.5 km) trail! Afterwards, join us by the campfire where a large grill will be available for use, and hot beverages and treats will be available for a small donation in the Trecker Lodge.
Parking inside of the property is limited to approximately 450 vehicles. Carpooling is encouraged. Parking for cars and pickup trucks only - no trailer, bus or RV parking. There is no roadside parking. A 2019 Wisconsin State Park annual vehicle admission sticker or a $5 Special Event daily vehicle admission fee is required per car.

In addition to the vehicle admission, a free ticket voucher is required for each vehicle that wishes to attend the event. Vouchers are available beginning Jan. 1, 2018. Please call the park office at 262-646-3025 to ensure vouchers are still available. Limit one per person at time of pickup. Park staff encourages people wishing to participate in the candlelight hike to pick up a voucher at the Lapham Peak office prior to 6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019.
Ticket vouchers will specify the admission time and presented at the gate for access. Entrants should arrive during the time frame specified. Ticket voucher time frames:
