Glacier Hills County Park in Hubertus
Located in the Town of Richfield in Washington County. As the name suggests, it sits along the line of glacial features that make up the larger Kettle Moraine, among Wisconsin’s most significant landscapes. The 140-acre park has characteristically rugged terrain that contains kettles, kames, an esker; ponds, marshes, and a bog; as well as a beach on Friess Lake. Forested areas include oaks, maples, basswood, ironwood, elm, birch, and cultivated white pines.
The park was originally developed as St. Amilian’s Orphanage Youth Camp. There are reservable shelters, a chapel, and a lodge with rentable space. Activities include hiking, fishing, basketball, volleyball, swimming, cross-country skiing, sledding, and picnicking.
Identified as an ebird hotspot.
