One of Wisconsin’s most beautiful nature areas is the ever-popular Devil’s Lake State Park, and just because the temperatures drop and this stunning landscape gets covered in snow doesn’t mean the activity slows! There are so many fun things to do at Devil’s Lake State Park in the wintertime. So bundle up, grab your snowshoes, and head to the park!
From snowy hikes and snowshoeing to cross-country skiing and ice-fishing, there’s no shortage of fun to be hard at Devil’s Lake State Park this winter. While the park is open for all of these activities, it is advised that people use caution and wear the proper, weather-appropriate gear, and get the conditions before heading out. When there is snow, the Steinke Basin Loop trail is periodically packed for more accessible travel—it is open to all non-motorized users, including skiers, hikers, and snowshoers.
The only thing better than exploring out in the snow at Devil’s Lake is retreating back to our Baraboo Bed and Breakfast after your chilly adventure. The historic Ringling House B&B is such a lovely getaway, only about ten minutes from the park entrance. While the park is known as a popular camping destination, why not secure yourself a charming suite with a cozy bed, electric fireplace, and a beautiful breakfast, homecooked with care each morning? Start planning your next perfect winter getaway, and book your room today! Continue reading
