Wisconsin Dells: seeking advice

We want to make a trip up the Wisconsin Dells. It looks like a wonderful place to spend a week.

We prefer canoeing, woods, hiking, lakes; to the amusement park venues.

Does anyone have a recommendation or the reverse regarding where to stay, etc?

We are planning 2nd or 3rd week in Sept after most children have returned to school.

Any comments welcome.

Thanks,

Roll and the DW

Then Wisconsin Dells might not be the place you want to go, although there certainly are opportunities in the Dells area to do those activities. Devils Lake State Park would satisfy all your interests. Rocky Arbor and Mirror Lake State Park are closer to the Dells. Roche-A-Cri State Park is fantastic and would have many canoeing opportunities in the area. Also consider Buckhorn State Park.

Devils Lake, not more than 20 - 30 minutes from the Dells, will have great hiking. The lake is beautiful, but small. Mirror Lake will be better for canoeing, but it is also on the small side. You'll be able to find a number of places to launch your canoe on the river and there are any number of places to stay on the river.

There are a couple of county parks on the Castle Rock flowage, just north of the Dells. Buckhorn state park is also on the flowage but getting into a state park campground (including Mirror Lake) can be a challenge, right through mid October.

Holiday Shores is right on the river, north of the Dells, and is a very popular family campground. We stayed at River Bay one time years ago and it is on the water.

Do a map search on Bing or Google for "campgrounds near Wisconsin Dells" and you'll find a number to choose from.

Ho-chunck casion has a wonderful RV park that is reasonably priced, near the Dells, located on Hwy 12 between Dells and Baraboo. Showers have heated floors and are the very clean and large. Level campsites and 27/7 security. We have stayed there and never entered the casino but the rv facilities are very nice. No shade as I recall, however, late September won't be a problem with high temperatures.

The Ho-Chunk casino RV "park" is very new, and pretty much a parking lot. Unless you plan to spend your days in the casino, you can do better.
