Dells of the Eau Claire County Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"All Wisconsinites should see the Dells of the Eau Claire. After all, the state deemed them signiﬁcant enough to be preserved as a state natural area. The park’s name might confuse folks trying to locate it. These are not the Dells that are so well known in Wisconsin; those Dells are located on the Wisconsin River and are surrounded by tourist traps. No, the Dells of the Eau Claire are located on the Eau Claire River, just east of Wausau in Marathon County, which operates the campground, trails, and swim beach. The name Eau Claire can also add to the confusion—Wisconsin has an Eau Claire County, the city of Eau Claire, and three Eau Claire Rivers.
Regardless of the confusion, visiting this park is well worth your time. Visitors will see amazing rock formations surrounded by cascading water and unusual plants. This recreational development has enhanced the work of Mother Nature, making these dells easier for tent campers to enjoy."
