The Friends of Wyalusing welcome you to Wyalusing State Park is a private non-profit charitable organization. Our goal is to support and enhance your experience here at wonderful Wyalusing. As you explore the park, you will see nature trails, kiosks, guided hikes and nature programs that were made possible by the efforts of our organization.

These are tough times for state budgets and so our parks rely more and more on volunteer organizations like ours to provide funding for things that might otherwise not be possible. We work with the park staff to seek out grants and outside sources of funding to stretch our impact and make your park experience, and that of future generations, even better. Last year we were voted the “most successful local friends group” by the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks but we don’t plan on resting. We have big plans for the future and with your help, we can do even more.

Many of us think that “someday” we will step up and make a difference for the things we care about. There is no better “someday” than today. The Friends of Wyalusing State Park need your help. You don’t need a lot of time or money, you don’t need to live close to the park, you just need to care enough to get involved. There are a number of ways to help.
First, consider becoming a friend. Click on this link to print a Friends Membership form.

Second, consider the Friends of Wyalusing State Park in your charitable giving. We have set up an endowment fund that will provide support and programming into the future and donations are tax-deductible as allowed. Memorials and estate donations are a great way to make an impact that lives on. Click here for more information. 

Wyalusing State Park is indeed a rare gem. You can help provide the polish that makes that gem shine.

Learn to Ice Fish

First, it will be an “open house” here at Wyalusing which means no vehicle sticker will be needed for the day. People will be able to come enjoy winter activates(eagle watching, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, etc) that day.
The learn to ice fish will start at 10:00 am at the shop. This will be a time for kids and adults to learn how to ice fish and after lunch (which will be provided) the group will then go to the boat landing and learn to ice fish with a mentor. If someone is interested we have a limited number of spaces people are encouraged to call the park to sign up ahead of time. Usually, we will fish for a couple of hours wrapping up around between 2 pm and 3 pm depending on the weather that day.
