About the Park
Waubedonia Park is the only County Park that offers camping. The park is just a short drive from the Milwaukee metro area, making it ideal for a quick weekend getaway. There are ten rustic campsites which are open from the first Saturday in May through the third Saturday in October, weather permitting. Spring is a beautiful time to see the variety of wild flowers
as well as the migrating birds that use the river as a travel corridor. At Waubedonia, you can fish for smallmouth bass and northern pike right from the front of your tent. Additionally, your boats, canoes and kayaks are welcome at the public launch at no cost. The park also has a rentable open air pavilion with enough picnic tables to seat 100 people. Electricity, banquet tables, and a large outdoor grill are included with your reservation. There is also a small section of the park north of County Road H for picnicking and fishing.
Thank you for your interest in making a reservation for utilizing the facilities at our park. Most facilities at the park (tennis courts, soccer field, boat launch, picnic / playground areas) are normally available to the public and do not require a group reservation.
However, special event and / or group reservations for these facilities are sometimes needed. If you have any questions about reserving park facilities, booking special events, or current rental rates, please call the Planning and Parks Department office at 262-284-8257.
