Here in Northeastern Wisconsin we live amongst an abundance of beauty! With this weekly series “Wisconsin Parks Near Me” we take the opportunity to highlight our community parks we share. We have so many parks we narrowed our focused to a selection along the waterways we paddle (and we still can’t feature them all!). So check out this week’s park details featured below – pack your gear, fill up the picnic basket, don’t forget your hammock or fishing pole.
Address: N7630 State Park Rd, Sherwood, WI 54169
Size: 1,147 acres
Description: High Cliff State Park is a historic gem tucked into the east side of Lake Winnebago. Following the Niagara Escarpment, this park offers water access and fantastic lake vistas. Featuring a marina, multiple options for camping, hiking and biking trails, as well as limestone quarry and kiln ruins and effigy mounds to look at and learn about. View the park from a different angle out on the water in a kayak or sailboat, or take advantage of the beach, picnic shelters and tables!
