Devil’s Lake Climbing & Camping Adventure
3 Days, 2 Nights
Devil’s Lake State Park, WI
Join us for an introduction to the exciting world of rock climbing at Devil’s Lake State Park. Surround yourself with colorful bluffs and trees while we teach the basics of climbing to beginners and challenging climbs to those of you ready to take it higher. Our experienced guides will show you the ropes - literally - and help you reach your goals.
We will be setting up camp Friday evening. All day Saturday and most of Sunday will be spent learning and refining your rock climbing skills. We generally hike and rock climb throughout Devil’s Lake State Park. Saturday morning we will be doing some instruction on the basic skills required to rock climb safely. Throughout the rest of the weekend you will have the opportunity to hike, rock climb, learn advanced rock skills, swim and enjoy the wilderness experience that Devil’s Lake provides.
In order to provide the finest and most complete wilderness experience, we strongly encourage and expect participation in all camp chores, including cooking, washing dishes, setting up and breaking down camp. We will provide all meals (except in transit), tents, all camping and cooking equipment, and all rock climbing-related equipment. Showers and swimming are available at Devil's Lake. You may be sharing a tent with fellow participants each night.
