Kayaking & Canoeing in Mirror Lake State Park This Summer

Mirror Lake State Park

Imagine gliding across smooth, calm water as it casts reflections of the surrounding trees, sandstone cliffs, and vibrant plant life. Mirror Lake State Park is named after its beautiful body of water, known for its mirror-like surface. Steep sandstone sides jut up to fifty feet in some areas, creating a natural wind barrier, resulting in some of the calmest waters you’ll every see.

This narrow reservoir covers 137-acres within the 2,179-acre state park in Southern Wisconsin. Part of the Wisconsin Dells region, this area is known for its interesting geology, with unique rock formations peppering Mirror Lake State Park and the surrounding wilderness. On a visit here, you’ll want to experience the water first hand, via kayak, canoe, or paddle board.

As a guest at our Wisconsin Bed and Breakfast, you’ll be less than a 15 minute scenic drive from the beauty of Mirror Lake State. There are numerous options for recreation here, from kayaking and canoeing to hiking and mountain biking. Join us for breakfast at the Inn before heading out to an adventure at Mirror Lake State Park. Check our availably and book your room today!  Continue reading
