This park is named for its centerpiece, a lake which often is so calm that not a ripple marks its surface. The lake reflects a wooded shoreline with cliffs up to 50 feet high, a swimming beach, and wetlands that are home to a variety of wildlife. Just three miles from Wisconsin Dells, Mirror Lake is also close to Devil's Lake, Rocky Arbor and Buckhorn state parks.

Echo Rock Trail
My family and I had a great time on this trail. Our most fun was actually had off the trail exploring the rocks formations and ledges along the lake. We could clearly hear the interstate which was a bummer. Well maintained, clearly marked trails. However there are too many people in this park. I will only come back during the week to avoid the crowds.

Northwest trail-
Really nice hike, well maintained trails and clearly marked. Saw quite a few turtles in the lake along the trail. Also saw a beautiful woodpecker land right next to the trail. A lot of people. Too many in my opinion. I will never come back here on a weekend.

[ Northwest > Newport > Lakeview ] Trails:
Bring some bug spray, the trails are mostly wooded areas and if you're walking the mosquitoes can be overwhelming. Beautiful views of the lake from The east side of Northwest Trail! Northwest is between easy and moderate because of the few inclines. Newport and Lakeview trails are very easy. There is a nice little beach and playground between Newport and Lakeview. Boat rentals at the end of Lakeview! Super well maintained! You can bring your dog on a leash but beware there are no trash receptacles except at the park entrance... so be prepared to carry it with you till the end!

This was a very enjoyable hike.

Great hiking!!


I love the state park not busy like devils lake, trails are pretty neat

Warm January day with the sun shining through the pines. Not enough snow for the trails to be used by cross country skiers but open for hiking.
Lovely hike.

Family friendly trails near WI Dells. Great place to get out of the water parks for a few hours. The trail system is well marked and maintained as well. I would not call this difficult, there was only one moderate incline on the path we took. There are several trails that intersect that are marked with maps.

Great little part that is often overlooked for the nearby Devil's Lake State Park. Worth a look.
