*** COVID-19 Update ***

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, state park restrictions and in order to follow social distancing guidelines, Badger Trails has changed the Devil's Lake Hike in 2020 to a self-guided hike on the day of your choice for the rest of the year. This will limit the number of people using the hiking trails at one time. Registered hikers will be mailed the limited edition 2020 Devil's Lake Hike patch and a trail map to commemorate this time in history. The $7 hike fee includes the limited edition commemorative patch and a tax deductible donation to Badger Trails to help us cover the costs we incurred to plan this event (printing, postage, insurance, advertising and the event patches). Badger Trails will not be offering camping at this year's hike. Please make your camping reservations with the Wisconsin State Park Reservation System. Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy your hike!

Patches will be mailed out in early September 2020. Thank you for your support!

2021 Devil's Lake Hike

The Devil's Lake Anniversary hike is an organized weekend campout held each year in early fall at Devil's Lake State Park near Baraboo, Wisconsin. Badger Trails reserves campsites in the park and in neighboring campgrounds for all groups that register for the event.  Weather and trail conditions permitting, the Saturday hike will include both the West and East bluffs of the park.

This event provides individuals and family groups, scouting groups and youth groups with the opportunity to hike the beautiful trails in Devil's Lake State Park; meet youths from other parts of the upper Midwest--including Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin; and learn how the unique landforms within the park were formed.

Organizations that register with Badger Trails will receive the following:

  • Campsite(s)
  • Commemorative patches
  • Admission to either a record spin (13 years and under) or a chaperoned dance (14 years and older).

All reservations must be made through Badger Trails!
