Straight Lake Park
Straight Lake is a 2,780-acre Wisconsin State Park that was established in 2002. It is a true gem, perfectly underdeveloped, with very few roads but many beautiful hiking trails.A premier section of the Ice Age Trail, which is one of 11 National Scenic Hiking Trails, meanders through the park with Lake views and glacial features that provide great vistas. There are 4 other hiking trails including one that goes around Rainbow Lake. There are 2 undeveloped lakes, Rainbow and Straight Lake. Straight Lake Park has 10 walk-in campsites not far from the Lake. There are 3 carry-in boat launches. The glacier made a tunnel channel giving the park the name Straight Lake. If you are into studying glaciers this park is for you! Pets are welcome as long as they are leashed. There is a picnic shelter close to the main parking lot. Straight Lake Park is open year-round. You can hike, kayak, canoe and fish during the summer. In the winter there is snowshoeing, hiking and ice fishing.
To get to the main parking lot from the North take 270 Avenue east from Highway 35. From the South take GG/120 north from Highway 48. The closest town is Luck, Wisconsin.
A Wisconsin Park sticker is required for Straight Lake Park. You can buy them online or at any Wisconsin State Park.
