PIKE LAKE STATE PARK
The Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is located in the middle of the Kettle Moraine, a strip of glacial landforms which extends through southeastern Wisconsin to Lake Winnebago. This provides for a beautiful glacial remnant landscape of kames, kettles, and eskers.
The Forest is named after the 446-acre, spring-fed kettle: Pike Lake. Powder Hill, a large glacial kame, also provides the opportunity for a great hike and view. Visitors can enjoy camping, swimming, hiking, fishing, picnicking, and much more within the Forest.
Camping is available at Pike Lake from late April through the third weekend in October. There are 32 campsites, 24 wooded and 8 open. The following facilities are available within the campground:
Dumping station (A $3.00 fee is required for non-registered campers at the Pike Lake Unit.)
Woodshed with firewood for sale
A picnic table, fire pit, and tent pad are provided at each campsite.
There are no electrical hookups except for site #21, the accessible site. All sites except #22 and #32 are reservable, however, if a campsite is not reserved it can be registered on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Reservations can be made up to 11 months in advance by using the ReserveAmerica web site (exit DNR) or calling (888) 947-2757.
Pike Lake was named for its excellent walleye pike fishing, but there are also several other types of game fish found in the lake. Anglers can either fish from boats or from shore, outside the marked swimming area (tall white buoys).
