Wisconsin Dells Home Owners Go Hiking, Camping, and Trapping at the Park
Rocky Arbor State Park spans 244 acres and is a welcome escape from busy days at your Wisconsin Dells real estate. There are many wooded campsites, hiking trails, great picnic spots, and playground areas. Hunting and trapping are allowed only in open areas of the park during the timeframe established by Wisconsin state parks. Just be sure to look at the park hunting map to make sure that you stay 100 yards outside of the open areas of the park, including trails. Visit the park during the winter months for winter hiking and snowshoeing.
There are some amazing rock formations within Rocky Arbor State Park. The gorge consists of sandstone that is about 500 million years old. This sandstone was formed by rivers draining into shallow seas, which have since receded. A long time after this process happened, the Wisconsin River created the gorge, which formed what we see today. The river no longer flows here, but has changed course and now there is only a small stream that flows through the park. All who call Wisconsin Dells home are invited to read more about the flora and fauna of Rocky Arbor State Park, view camping information, and plan a visit.
