Kettle Moraine State Forest – Northern Unit

Snap a selfie with our best views, such as a sunset at Mauthe Lake or a bird’s-eye view from Parnell Tower. Explore and enjoy 30,000 acres of rolling hills, lakes, forests, and grasslands that were given to us 15,000 years ago during the Ice Age, when our area lay under the grip of colossal ice sheets. Summer provides picturesque horseback riding, camping, bicycling, hiking, and fishing. Fall in love with the colors as you meander our winding roads and trails during the autumn season. Winter provides excellent opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. Then watch as the forest comes alive during the spring season.
