High Cliff State Park is a state park located in Sherwood famous for its fantastic scenery.

Nice state park with interesting limestone rock features and great views of the lake that we visit often because we are nearby.

Some of the trails near the lake and halfway up to the cliff can be really muddy in Spring or anytime there has been a lot of rain.

Cobblestone Inn & Suites - Brillion and Roost Bed & Breakfast are the best hotel to stay in.
