Yellowstone Lake State Park Current conditions


The trails have not been groomed. There is about 6 inches of fresh snow on the trails. Trails are in good shape for snowshoeing. If we receive more snow, we will start grooming the cross-country ski trails the week of Feb. 12.

The snowmobile trail within the park is open when Lafayette County Snowmobile trails are open. See the Travel Wisconsin website [exit DNR], check with the Fayette Sno-goers [exit DNR] or call (608) 776-3871 for trail conditions.

The campground is closed for the season and will open about April 15. When the campground opens, all sites will be non-reservable through May 14.
