At Wyalusing State Park, you can camp 500 feet above the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers. One of Wisconsin’s oldest parks, Wyalusing features Indian burial mounds, canoe trail, bird watching. It’s a place to go for fishing, boating, bicycling, picnicking, and enjoying nature. There are an interpretive center and four historical markers within the park.

Wyalusing’s 2,628 acres include hardwood forests, pine plantations, bluffs, springs, waterfalls, wetlands, and backwaters. The park is home to deer, beavers, fox, and many other animals. More than 90 bird species live here during the summer and 100 more can be observed during spring and fall migration. They include wild turkeys, bald eagles, turkey vultures, hawks, owls, waterfowl, woodpeckers, and a colorful variety of songbirds.

Two campgrounds have 109 regular campsites, 34 of them with electricity. There also are a modern lodge/dormitory complex with a capacity of 108 people and a group tent campground that accommodates 130 people.

There are showers and flush bathrooms in the Wisconsin Ridge Campground and showers and pit toilets in the Homestead Campground. A dumping station for camper holding tanks is near the entrance to the Homestead campground. Firewood may be purchased at the park concession stand.
