We have been living in Wisconsin for 11 months and today we have been to 16 Wisconsin state park, Pretty sure when we get to 50  we will be ready to move out of state. This is the life of an adventure, we took advantage of spring, summer and fall now we are approaching winter, we have few new adventures that we are planning to try to make it through.

Tower hill is not just a state park but a Historical marker.The park is open year-round from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. During the off season (Columbus Day weekend through mid-May), the main gate is closed, but may park at the entrance and walk in to the park

Look at this charming Rustic  Gazebo at the top of the hill.

It took us literally 0.8 to reach this side of the tower from the camping side, we decided to take 1.5 mi loop and the plan was to hike to the tower and see the tunnel, not sure why this trail was rated difficult, I have brought a carrier for my daughter but she end up running so end  up hiking 2.5mil.

all the way to the tower and down to the tunnel. I highly recommend this trail to the families but like I said I will rate it easy even thou its uphill, its toddler friendly and dogs must be on the leash.

It’s not easy to get lost at  this park, its well marked there are signs every corner and a map, pay attention to little things.

There was actual bats hibernating inside the tunnel.

”Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”
—John Muir
