“Our adjacent, great state park.”
Reviewed 25 November 2011

I'd better note that we live near the park, so we often drive through just to enjoy the scenery or to walk the trails. There are miles of great trails, often overlooking Lake Winnebago. There are some pretty high cliffs so you need to watch kids. Our neighbors keep their boats in the marina in the summer and it is a well maintained little marina, with a boat lift even that they added a number of years ago. Pretty complete state park with camping, trails, small museum, good beach and snack bar in summer, etc.

“NIce State Park, interesting historical sights”
Reviewed 28 July 2009

We visited High Cliff State Park in one day. We did the Lime Kiln Ruins trail which was very interesting. Even the kids (7, 4, 3) thought it was neat. We then went to the observation tower and walked to the Red Bird statue. There were some neat overlooks along the trails. We didn't do any of the trails that just walk through the woods as we can do that at home. The Indian Mound Trail was also neat and had information posts along the way.

If you go make sure to stop at the general store as there is a lot of neat history inside. Also when you go through the enterance make sure you ask for a map. It makes it easier to find the right road to take you to the trails you want.

The kids swam at the beach there. The beach is quite small. It was nice though since it is so shallow. You can walk 30 feet out and still only be at waist level. It is wavy and has cloudy water but that is just a part of the lake. There is actually an information post on a trail that explains it.

A nice state park with some neat history!
