High Cliff State Park

High Cliff State Park In Sherwood, WI

This Park of 1,145 acres rests on limestone cliffs overlooking Lake Winnebago. It is the only state-owned recreational area on Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin's largest lake.

History and geology buffs will want to visit the park to learn about effigy mound builders, lime kiln, quarry operations, camping and the scenic overlook. Activities include camping, hiking, horse riding, skiing, picnic spot, golfing at High Cliff Golf Course, a boat launch, and a beach.

A typical amount of precipitation falls here at High Cliff State Park; most of the rain falls throughout August, and February is the month with the least moisture.

High Cliff State Park overlooks Lake Winnebago on its northeast shoreline. High above the water, a massive memorial statue of Red Bird, chief of the Winnebagos, stands guard over the lake. The mountain bike path that runs the length of the cliffs takes its name from this historic figure.

If the intent of the ride is to get out and do some climbing, ride back down to the main lot and come back up on the road, a killer climb that takes you from the lakeshore to the top of the bluff over the course of a mile.

Reservations are recommended for electric sites April through October and all weekend camping May through October.
