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.
