Here are some really cool regional hiking spots...

Click here for information on Devil's Lake State Park, Baraboo, WI.

My three kids and I periodically go to Devil's Lake State Park near Baraboo, WI. I don't like camping at state parks as there are just too many people there, but once each fall I camp at this park with my girls and a group of friends. It's a very busy park but the hiking is unbelievable! I generally go here just for the day. In the winter, the park receives much less traffic.

Door County, WI is one of my favorite places to visit. Positioned between Lake Michigan and Green Bay, it boast several state parks and numerous county parks with spectacular hiking and views of the water. This is a fire tower in Peninsula State Park which overlooks Green Bay. Door County is swamped with tourists during the summer, so we go in spring. Many of the quaint shops are not yet open but we lose the tourists and gain some solitude. Another neat park, Newport State Park, has incredible hiking along miles of secluded waterfront on Lake Michigan.

For information on The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, click here.

This is the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, near Bayfield, WI. The water is very cold - even in August - so swimming is questionable. You'll find spectacular views of Lake Superior and a great place for beach-combing. There are sea caves not far from where this picture was taken. You can hike a 3-4 mile woodland trail and look down inside of them or you can kayak into the caves from the lake.

This is Amnicon Falls State Park near Superior, WI. I've never camped here - it's just a place we bop through enroute to places north. Really neat waterfalls throughout! Great place for a lunch break.
