If you are looking for a quiet stroll around Devil’s Lake State Park, this will not be your weekend. The annual Badger Trails Devil’s Lake Anniversary hike is held the first weekend of October each year, and this is it (September 30-October 2, 2016). Badger Trails reserves most of the park’s campsites and sites in many nearby campgrounds as well. The Badger Trails event is an organized weekend campout that brings hundreds of young scouts to the Devil’s Lake for a lots of fun activities including; camping, hiking, a youth dance and more. Of course with this many young people in the park at one time, you’re looking at 3 days of high-energy fun and mayhem. To be sure, not everyone’s “cup of tea”. Not to worry, this is a great weekend to check out one of the many, many other fantastic Wisconsin State Parks this weekend. They’d be happy to see you!
