2014 WGA Geo Picnic Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend 
Upcoming Events

Kettle Moraine State Forest - Lapham Peak Unit The park is located 3/4 mile south of I-94 on County Hwy C (Delafield exit). The main attraction of the park is the 45 foot observation tower atop the highest point in Waukesha County.  The park’s glaciated topography provides excellent hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing on the lighted trails.

*****Lapham Peak does require a state park admission sticker or daily pass to enter the park.*****

There are currently many caches in the park, keep your eyes open for new caches placed for the picnic.  The fall colors will make this a beautiful place to get out and cache.  And don't forget to make a visit to the park's tower to see the fall colors from above the trees.

Location: Regner Park in West Bend  

Time: 7:30 am to 10:00 am* (you must purchase your plate by 10:00, we will continue serving a little after that) (*time subject to change – you will be notified in advance if this occurs)

The breakfast includes: - Pancakes… lots of them - Breakfast sausage (* a reasonable limit will be placed on sausage consumption to control costs) - Beverage of your choice, including coffee, orange juice, milk, and cocoa - mixed fruit salad

The 4 Pack of Fun from the DNR Comment Printer Friendly Send to a Friend

This is the perfect weekend to head out for one (or more) of the new WGA State Park caches.

From the Wisconsin DNR:

June 7-8 is the perfect weekend to try a new outdoors activity or return to one you haven't tried in a long time. Challenge yourself and try them all!


 MADISON - Save the dates for Free Fun Weekend, June 7-8, when Wisconsin residents and visitors alike can fish for free, hike or bike state trails for free, ride public ATV trails for free, and, new this year, enjoy free admission to state parks and forests on both days as well.

 New this year, all state park vehicle admission sticker fees on all DNR-owned properties are waived for both Saturday, June 7, and Sunday, June 8. Previously, the state park system's longstanding free open house was only the first Sunday in June; this year, vehicle admission fees have been waived for both the first Saturday and Sunday in June.

 "We're excited to add a second free day of admission to our state parks to make this truly a "free fun weekend," says Department of Natural Resources Secretary Cathy Stepp. "DNR is your gateway to the outdoors, and we want to open the door wide to everybody to enjoy our beautiful state and diverse recreation."
