The Gorgeous Natural Oasis In Wisconsin That You Can Only Visit On Foot
Way up in the northwest corner of the state, about 90 minutes from Eau Claire and Minneapolis, is Wisconsin’s newest state park. Straight Lake State Park is about 12 miles north of St. Croix Falls and is adjacent to a state natural area, meaning there are nearly 4,000 acres of pristine land just waiting to be explored.
But the best part about Straight Lake State Park is how well the state has worked to keep it pristine. It is open to foot traffic only. Boats are allowed on the many lakes and ponds, but only the boats that you can carry in yourself.
