Finally! As of today, you can borrow snowshoes for free from the Devil’s Lake State Park nature center to use in the park. Saturday, Feb 3rd we saw about 4 inches of snow accumulate in the Baraboo area and measured 5″ of the fresh snow at the park. This sudden snowfall bodes well for the park’s Candlelight Hike/Snowshoe next Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018. In fact, it’s possible we may get even more snow before the week is out!
As I mentioned above, If you want to go try snowshoeing in the park, you can borrow snowshoes absolutely free from the Nature Center located on the North Shore of the park. A limited number of children’s sizes are available as well. You can borrow snowshoes whenever the Nature Center is open and as long as snow conditions hold out.
Keep in mind that although the nature center has a lot of snowshoes, they can still run out on busy weekends.
