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.

Mirror Lake has 151 family campsites in three separate campgrounds, plus seven group sites. The park also has an accessible cabin for people with disabilities and a rental cottage that was designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Bluewater Bay Campground, the nearest to the park visitor center and amphitheater, has 63 sites in four loops. It has a shelter, showers, and both flush and pit toilets. A hiking trail connects the campground with the beach area.

Sandstone Campground has 68 sites, including four walk-in sites and one site that’s accessible for people with disabilities. There are showers and both flush and pit toilets. It’s near the boat landing, fishing pier, and beach. Twenty-one of the sites have electrical hookups.
