Enjoy Cool, Crisp Water At What Was Once A Private Swimming Resort In Wisconsin

Nature is slowly reclaiming an old resort that once entertained wealthy guests in southern Wisconsin. Paradise Springs Nature Area was once home to an opulent resort and horse track, but today it’s in ruins; a place where visitors can take in a refreshing scene and hike past natural springs while seeing what’s left of a developer’s dreams. Here’s what’s waiting for you at Paradise Springs.

A Wisconsin State Parks sticker is required to park at Paradise Springs. Printed brochures with more information about the area are available on site for a small fee. If you enjoy hiking into the past, here’s a trail that will take you to the original Badger State Ruins.
