Roche-A-Cri State Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Roche-A-Cri is quite a landmark on the Wisconsin landscape, as is the state park that surrounds and protects it. Roche-A-Cri itself is a rock prominence uplifting from the central Wisconsin landscape. Its 300-foot elevation allows a view of 10 counties and up to 60 miles away! First discovered by aboriginals who left petroglyphs to prove their ﬁnd, the ﬂat-topped cliﬀ-sided perch was dubbed the crying rock by Frenchmen. Later, American soldiers and explorers let their presence be known with their own rock inscriptions. Today, visitors can camp in an attractive, wooded campground at the base of Roche-A-Cri, get a view from the top, and make their own memory that needs no inscription.
The park’s proximity to the Wisconsin Dells, 30 miles south, makes for a sane base camp and respite to explore the tourist madness that is the Dells. Before you hit the Dells or climb the 303 wooden steps to the top of Roche-A-Cri, ﬁnd a site at the campground. Your biggest problem will be choosing from the many ideal tent sites."
