Devils Lake Baraboo Wisconsin Dells Missing Treasure!

When ever I talk about Devils Lake most people automatically assume I am talking about the infamous fishing hole in South Dakota! But no, I’m speaking of Devils Lake in Baraboo Wisconsin. Devils Lake State Park is only 20 minutes away from the popular Midwestern getaway Wisconsin Dells.

Wisconsin Dells is a popular tourist destination for much of the upper Midwest. It’s an oasis of literally hundreds of indoor and outdoor water parks, old world charm town and boat tours down the dells. It’s the perfect any time of year getaway for family, friends and gold old booze ups!  Next time your there, take some time to wander over to Baraboo Wisconsin! They have so much to offer including my favorite Devils Lake! It really is a Missing treasure that most visitors to the area don’t know about.

Ice Age Treasure!

Devils Lake is part of the Ice Age National Scientific Reserve because of it’s formation. It’s unique in that it’s a closed lake drainage lake, meaning no water flows out. Devils Lake got it’s name because it’s formed of a deep chasm, meaning a deep fissure in the earths crust with no visible inlet or outlet.

This lake is so pristine and absolutely a beautiful sight to see! It is surrounded by rolling hills of lush green trees and grasses on one side and rocky terrain on the other. It’s the perfect place to get in touch with nature and go for a hike on the trails that surround the lake. It’s also the perfect place for a family picnic and to hang out on the beach.

The park is open all year round for spring and summer fun basking in the sun. Perfect place for an Autumn day out to take in all the lovely colors before they fall from the trees! I challenge you to put this on your bucket list of things to do next time you visit Wisconsin Dells.

    I went here when I was really little but haven’t been back since! I will have to visit again to refresh my memory. 🙂 I love that they don’t allow motorized boats on the lake. I personally enjoy kayaking so that would be my choice!

    You know, we always hear about the big US National Parks but I realise there are hundreds including gems like Devils Lake Baraboo Wisconsin Dells that I’ve never even heard of. I find geology quite fascinating, so this looks like one I should add to my wish list.

      I hope you can make it someday. the Northern Midwest is full of geographical treasures from the Ice age days and so many unique parks. I really miss living there since I moved to UK.. I always look forward to trips back and so grateful I have been able to see so much of the US.

  7. Looks like a lovely place to go hiking and to sit by the lake. I love the stone seat you found down by the lake.

    I’m headed to Wisconsin for my first time in April. Can’t wait to see it. Perhaps I should schedule some time to see this attraction, too. Looks nice.

    When you think of Wisconsin and lake you think of the great lakes. I just checked google maps to see where Devils lake is. It sounds like a very unique lake, the fact that no water flows out. I wish I’d stopped by when I drove past on I-90!

    This lake looks gorgeous! Wisconsin Dells has been on my list for so long but we haven’t been able to make it there yet! Now I know to set aside a few extra days for hanging out lakeside.

    That’s really interesting that Devils Lake is part of the Ice Age National Scientific Reserve. I love the geology of places. And it looks beautiful. I can picture floating around in there. It’s so great when there are quieter places near busy ones (like the Dells) to balance things out.

    That’s so interesting that there’s no visible streams of water going in or out of the lake! Normally, I would worry about seaweed and algae dwelling in the water, but that water looks absolutely pristine! Are some of the outdoor waterparks in the lake itself or just nearby? I feel like a giant slide into the lake would be so much fun! Thanks for sharing this unique Midwest treasure!

    You’ve convinced me to finally go to Devil’s Lake next summer! I’m from Wisconsin, not terribly far from the Dells, but have never visited that particular lake. So helpful to know that there are kayaks for rent right in the park. Dreaming of a perfect summer day on the water!
