Natural Wonder

Our Take

This state park is a true hidden gem, the kind that is so much more than expected, especially for anyone roadtripping through. It’s remote but incredibly well maintained, and has great amenities like playgrounds and picnic sites and camping all throughout. The lake is appropriately named; Hiking around it, you’ll see how the water perfectly reflects the green hills and forests. It was the kind of place we were still talking about as a highlight at the end of the trip.

“a state park with a frank lloyd wright cottage for rent”

This park is named for its centerpiece, a lake which often is so calm that not a ripple marks its surface. The lake reflects a wooded shoreline with cliffs up to 50 feet high, a swimming beach, and wetlands that are home to a variety of wildlife. Just three miles from Wisconsin Dells, Mirror Lake is also close to Devil's Lake, Rocky Arbor and Buckhorn state parks.The park's 2,200 acres has three picnic areas (one with a shelter and all with grills); wooded campsites; bike, boat, canoe, and kayak rentals; a cabin for people with disabilities; and the Seth Peterson Cottage designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Only slow, no-wake boating is allowed.

Perfect base camp for Wi Dells and Baraboo Rec Areas
Most recent stay was 7/17/16 thru 7/22/16 - I'm "late" in posting my review

The layout of the campground is such that the restroom/shower buildings are easily accessible from your campsite, but not immediately adjacent. One restroom/shower building serves about 15 campsites. They have 2 each 2 shower stalls, sinks, and toilets. Push button/auto shut off showers so- you gotta keep pushing to get more water. We’ve camped here 8 seasons now [family reunion getaway occupying 7 sites] and sad this this year they removed the paper towels [only air dryers] as we used them to clean up our area around the sinks when done. Now they stay messy longer as they’re cleaned only once per day. Each stall is private with locking door and large enough to use to dry off. There is 1 hook on the inside of door but now where else [wish there were more] also there is a long bench just outside of the shower stalls which is handy but no shelves for your stuff.

Reasonably priced park considering it’s near the tourist vacation destination area.. All campsites have gravel pads but the interior roadways are paved. Sites are very roomy with lots of vegetation between sites for privacy and all among many trees for welcomed shade during hot summer months. Some sites are dry camp others are electric only no sewer hookups, but there is a dump and potable water fill station near park entrance. Also water spigots are in every loop and is no problem getting water. Lot’s to do all around and Wi Dells is only minutes away – Google Wisconsin Dells and you’ll see it truly is a vacation destination – boasts to have more waterslide parks than anywhere else in the USA.
