Bouldering at Devil's Lake State Park in Wisconsin

Originally added by Will McKay

Some amazing views with hundreds of boulder problems. There is a massive lake to cool down in with a bunch of other climbers from the near by city of Madison, WI.

Devil's Lake State Park in Wisconsin offers some of the craziest views in the midwest as well as an abundance of supreme bouldering sites. To start off this endeavor there is one key item: a parking sticker. You can obtain one of these by heading over to either the north shore or south shore park stations. From there you can choose your area to boulder.

There are some great problems on the north end, behind the bathrooms on the far left side of the parking lot. There are trails departing from both the north and south parking lots that loop around the lake and offer great access to a variety of problems. The rock is all beautiful purple quartz and it fills entire hillsides. One particularly popular place to climb is the east side bluff field. This is home to scenic views as well as fun, challenging problems. This is my personal favorite bouldering area in the park.
