Thinking about a visit to the Baraboo area?

There is so much to do in this area (even if you don’t head to the Dells)! If you love to get outside and leave the car in the parking lot, Devil Lake State Parkis abundant with trails and vistas where you can rock climb, hike, camp and picnic. Devil’s Gate is a very popular rock climbing destination! If you’re interested in geology and glaciers, the Ice Age Trail offers hiking loops and interpretive locations throughout the area, too. The Reedsburg Area Historical Society has a restored village that’s open May to October and the International Crane Foundation is located just north of Baraboo. More species of cranes nest in this area than anywhere else in the world. Don’t forget the ferry ride at Merrimac — it’s a fun 15 minute way to cross the Wisconsin River—complete with ice cream stands on both sides! Please remember to contact Trail members prior to your visit as some hours may vary.
