Blue Mound State Park

4350 Mounds Park Road

Perched atop the highest point in southern Wisconsin, Blue Mound State Park offers spectacular views and unique Locationgeological features. A swimming pool is available in during summer. Over 20 miles of scenic hiking, off-road biking, and cross-country ski trails, as well as a family campground, access to the Military Ridge State Trail with bike-in campsites, and a rustic cabin for people with disabilities make Blue Mound a popular destination year-round.

I've hiked about 4 trails here. The trailed by the Friendship Shelter are grass paths through the woods. They are fine. But my preferred trails are Indian Marker Trail and Flint Rock Nature trail. Indian Marker Trail is a bit overgrown with rocks in the path, but I think it's beautiful. There are some cool things to see along the woodland floor. This path is narrow and you'll definitely have to watch your footing. This is about a half a mile trail. Flint Rock Nature Trail is more maintained and about 1.3 miles. It's a good little hike. Not nearly as beautiful as the Indian Marker trail though. I will be back to explore more trails for sure. Highly recommended.

Love the nearby town. Beautiful park with great well marked trails and swimming. Access to larger road bike path and bike camping sites. No water at the sites, and only a few with electricity. Showers are warm and bathrooms are clean, but a bit worn. Sites are off level and tight with mud and sand making it more difficult to get in. If you have a smaller rig and bigger truck, you will be fine.

Great camping! Magnificent views from the towers! Clean bathrooms/showers. Minimal bugs. Nice pool. We will be back for sure!

Very clean and well-maintained. Enjoyed walking up the towers to check out the aerial view of the surrounding areas. The walk down, however, sucked. But that's just because you're done with the excitement and view.

I lived in the state of Oregon for years, and yes, the Wisconsin State Park campgrounds pale in comparison. But Blue Mounds is my favorite State Park in Southern Wisconsin. While the sites are small, some of the non-reservable ones can accommodate two 4-person tents if you get creative. The privacy (now with the green foliage filling in) is very fine. The trails - especially the Holy Schist trail - is an excellent hike. The little town of Blue Mounds is minutes away (the gas station/market for needed supplies; Hooterville Inn for a fish fry). Climbing the observation towers late at night is great. The picnic area at the top of the park is huge and gorgeous. I'll be back!
