This was a great park to hike. We did 13 miles in one day. Balance rock and Devils door was great. Even the hike around the lake was great.

We enjoyed climbing through the rocks and taking in a great Wisconsin view. Some of the trails are more difficult which makes it great for teens.

Pure beauty! We visited during Spring Break and weren't disappointed. I can't imagine the view when it's nice out. It does cost $16 to get in.

If you don't have a national park lifetime pass, which sad to say, only recently went up in price, then you would have to purchase a daily pass. The daily pass does give you in and out privileges for the 24 hour period, if... More

There is an entrance fee for the park, but there is no additional fee for bringing your own kayak.
