Perrot State Park Current conditions


Cross-country ski trail conditions.

The hiking trails are in good condition. With many of the leaves already on the ground you will get a magnificent view of the bluffs, the river, and the topography of the park. Stop by the office and pick up a trail map.  Some sections of the park will be open for hunting beginning November 15.  Trails that are closed to hunting include: East Brady’s and West Brady’s and the Riverview Trail. Maps indicating closed areas are posted at the office and at trailhead kiosks.    


See the DNR events calendar for a list of events at Perrot and all state parks.


The flush toilet and shower building in the campground are closed for the season. There are vault and portable toilets available in the campground. You can still dump at the dump station but there is no water at that location. You can find water at the maintenance shop building. Campsites 1-23 are open on a first-come, first-served basis. If the office is closed, you can self-register at the campground entrance.


Much of our fall color has already passed, but some of the oak trees along the bay and on Trempealeau Mountain are still showing off their autumn beauty. The prairie grasses are lighting up the prairies with a golden glow so hike up to the top of Brady’s Bluff or stroll through the Nature Center prairie. Many of the migratory songbirds have passed through the area but the local birds are out feeding on the dried berries and seeds. The tundra swans are in the area.  You may see some in Trempealeau Bay or at our neighbor, the Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge.


As of Nov. 15, areas of the park are open to small game and archery deer hunting.  On Saturday, Nov. 17 those areas will also be open to muzzleloader deer hunting.  For information about the hunting seasons and a map of what areas are open or closed to hunting, pick up a map at the park office. 


The river levels are stabilizing after recent high waters. The dock has been removed for the season.
