Mill Bluff State Park sits an equal distance from two of the largest cities in Wisconsin, Eau Claire and Madison. Accessible via Interstate Route 94, Mill Bluff State Park is a convenient stop for anyone renting an RV in Wisconsin and looking to explore the great outdoors.
Mill Bluff State Park is most well known for the ten tall bluffs that dominate the landscape. These bluffs were originally sea stacks that were formed over 12,000 years ago when Wisconsin was covered in a huge sheet of ice. As part of the Ice Age National Scientific Reserve, Mill Bluff State Park has been created to protect these unique bluffs and educate the public on their geological significance.
Consider an RV rental in Juneau County for plenty of opportunities to explore these magnificent rock formations all year round!
Mill Bluff State Park is open from May to September for visitors to take advantage of the many walking trails and gorgeous swimming hole. During the winter it is unofficially open for experienced cross-country skiers and snowshoers.
Mill Bluff State Park is extremely popular among hikers looking for their next challenge. The park boasts several different trails that wind through the surrounding pine and oak forests and in and around the superb bluffs. By far the most popular hike is the path that leads to the Mill Bluff Summit. This short, but surprisingly strenuous hike, leads walkers up 223 stairs to an observation deck. Here hikers are rewarded with breathtaking views over the park’s most well-known bluffs such as Camel’s Bluff, Bee Bluff, and the Devil’s Monument. For a more leisurely hike, try the half a mile long, nature hike that winds around the base of the bluffs and provides a great introduction to the local fauna and flora in the park.
After working up a sweat, head over to the park’s sandy beach, which provides an idyllic environment to take a refreshing dip in the cool waters. The small 2.5-acre lake was formed as a result of underwater springs, so expect nothing but crystal clear waters! Although there are some amenities here such as changing rooms, there are no lifeguards on duty at the beach, so swimming is done at your own risk!
When you rent a camper near Mill Bluff State Park during winter, it is more than likely that you will have the whole park to yourself. What better reason to get stuck into some adventurous winter activities! Once enough snow has fallen, the park’s hiking trails transform into excellent cross-country skiing and snowshoeing routes. The park is unmanned during these months, so these activities are recommended for experienced users only.
RV camping at Mill Bluff State Park is possible from Memorial Day through to September in the small campground.

When you camp with an RV rental near Mill Bluff State Park, you will be within driving distance of several charming towns, each with their own unique attractions.
One of the closest towns to Mill Bluff State Park is Camp Douglas, home to the Wisconsin National Guard Museum. A must-see for any history buff with an RV rental in the area, the museum tells of the evolution of the Wisconsin National Guards and the important role they have played in world history. With a multitude of exhibitions on show including profiles of men and women who have served, outdoor displays of aircraft and an interesting collection of weaponry, there is enough to occupy the family during a rainy afternoon. Opt for a tour by one of the knowledgeable staff, many of whom are ex-military, for a truly fascinating experience.
For an educational experience in the great outdoors, head to Necedah to visit their National Wildlife Refuge. This huge refuge was first established in 1939 and is consistently praised for its efforts to provide a natural mecca for migratory birds, various reptiles and over fifty species of butterfly. Take a leisurely stroll along the dirt trails to see how many different species you can spot before climbing up to the observation deck for views over the scenic landscapes. The visitor’s center is particularly fascinating, with several interactive displays and plenty of friendly staff on hand to answer any questions.
A little further afield, just outside of Wisconsin Dells is the Riverside and Great Northern Railway, a living museum that celebrates the developments of steam locomotives over the years. Once you have perused the various exhibits in the museum and learning center, don’t forget to take a ride on one of the live steam trains. Winding through three miles of picturesque canyons and dense pine forests and along the Wisconsin River, this is stunning ride as well as a historical one.
