We stayed here for 3 nights over 4th of July weekend, so the park was busy. We took advantage of the Lake Wissota shoreline and did some kayaking. We also did a little hiking and even went into town and did the Leinenkugel brewery tour. There were plenty of mosquitos - especially in the early evening, but we expected that anyway. Our site was wooded and well separated from others. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Travel Trailer.
It's a very large, very beautiful state park with a shore line on the Lake Wissota. It's a beautiful state park with plenty of outdoor activities. As with most state parks, mosquitoes are plentiful, so come prepared. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:
Chippewa Falls has plenty of the necessities beyond camping, e.g. shopping, restaurants, etc.
I always enjoy a quick stay here. Paved roads are nice. Bathroom and shower facilities are older state park style, but fairly clean. You can hike, boat, fish, and swim. The swimming beach is a bit of a hike so we drive to it. Older loops are more wooded. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Twenty per night was for 50 amp electric only. WI requires non-residents to purchase an annual vehicle admission sticker for $35 (which we will use at other WI state parks) and gives a courtesy pass for towed vehicles. This park is located on the lovely manmade Lake Wissota. The beach was ok. Spacing between sites was roomy and most sites were level. Most sites have ample shade, but some are in full sun. Water is available throughout the park and the dump station is located at the entrance/exit area, which is about 1.5 miles from the campground. Many recreational opportunities are available in the park, as well as in the local area. We received two bars of 4G on our AT&T cell phone, so we successfully used it as a Wi-Fi hotspot for Internet access. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Motorhome.
This was our first visit to Lake Wissota State Park. We've camped in many of Wisconsin's state parks and this one is very similar to the others we've seen. Restrooms and showers were vintage, but the locale was superb. Almost every site is private and surrounded by greenery. There is a walking trail to the beach and a large beach area and beach house. A number of sites have been upgraded to 50A service. Also, the park is close to Chippewa Falls for groceries and dining. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Motorhome.

I don't recall the fee hence the $1. I did have to buy a park pass. Very nice sites in a truly beautiful state park. Would be a ten if only they had full hookups. Beautiful trails through a variety of diverse habitats. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The first issue is the camping rate. An out of state tag cost $10/day + camping fee. ($14, $19 with electric) They have a pass you can buy for $35 to get in to the parks all year long. You can do the math. Resident of Wi. rates are lower. They do not honor Federal cards and senior discounts are only for Wi. residents. The showers we mostly clean but needed a good scrubbing same with bathroom but you don't have to pay extra and they were nice and warm. The roads are tight, we had a 36'MH with toad. Back in sites. They have 50 amp service but there are many sites without electric or just 30 amp. They have a dump station but no water at sites or sewer. Some sites are tight others are roomy. We had one that was a bit tight to get into but had a lot of room when we were in it. It was a large site with lots of vegetation between the other sites. This is a nice park and would get an 8 if the bathrooms were cleaner. Verizon MiFi works well no other service, no cable TV. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Motorhome.

We arrived here and there were only two other campers in the park. We got site 76 which was a back-in with 50 amp electricity and satellite TV but it was marginal. We had some lake view from here. It was one of the quietest parks we have ever stayed in. Our Verizon Internet worked well. Access to mtn. biking trails and boat launch was very good. The city of Chippewa Falls is only about 15 minutes away. Campsites here have many trees and nice privacy. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Motorhome.
This is a nice, clean state park. Although you are camping close to Lake Wissota, you cannot easily get to it from your campsite. They have most of it blocked off because of erosion. There's a boat launch and dock. There are places to fish in the park, but be prepared to hike or bike to get to them. The lake is beautiful, clean, and caters to great boating and hiking. There is also a small beach for swimming, information and nature centers, and a playground with a large picnic area. We camped at Lake Wissota State Park in a Travel Trailer.
