A nice overall state park. We were in site 105E. It was a be tricky backing our pop up into the site at night. This was due to the incline, but I was expecting this as stated on the website. The WI Ridge campground is shaded, but fairly open with little privacy. The views from the campground in general are great. Some of the hiking trails are closed due to erosion. Treasure cave was cool. The bathrooms are newer and nice with private separate shower areas. The staff and hosts were very nice and there is a concession stand open until 8 pm on weekends. This campground was almost full even on a cold rainy weekend in Oct. So make reservations early.

We stayed on one of the ridge sites and it was absolutely beautiful, especially the sunset. The only funny thing is that one of the views from the bluff is the WAlmart in Prairie du chien. There are very nice newer bathrooms with nice showers and the radio always plays with weather forecasts. The sites on the ridge are spaced out well, but there is not a lot of privacy, however there are also some sites in the woods away from the bluff which are very private.

We stayed here at the end of September 2006 but I just found this site. I would LOVE to go back again and stay at one of the sites on the bluff. Technically, we were in the WI Ridge section but not on the edge. My husband preferrs the more private, woodsy sites like are found in most WI state parks and if you are the same way, you might prefer Homestead. I think waking up in the morning and seeing that view first thing would be worth the lack of privacy but you should know, the campsites on the Ridge are VERY open. Also you should know that the sites on the edge of the bluff actually have a lower level off the edge of the site so you don't really have to worry about that edge of the cliff, there's a sandy platform just about a foot down on those sites but you still might not be comfortable if you are afraid of heights. This is not the park's fault (although I do wonder if they mentioned it to guests arriving Friday night) but Saturday morning 9/30 was the first day of duck season. We know this because at 9AM sharp on Saturday morning, gunfire exploded all throughout the valley below us. One gunshot would probably echo 7-8 times in that valley and it was gunfire pretty much all morning but it was constant until about 9:30 am. He hunts and I do too occasionally so it didn't bother us at all but I'm sure it bothered a lot of people. You probably couldn't hear as much in Homestead.

Wyalusing State Park offers spectacular views of the Mississippi and Wisconsin River with campsites overlooking Prairie du Chien. Although camping these sites during the weekend are hard to come by, Wyalusing is well worth the time to camp at. Great clean sites and facilities, plenty to do with hiking, biking, and they even have a playground for the younger children. There is a boat landing with rental canoes and a fishing float.

We drove up the country roads along the Mississippi from Nelson Dewey State Park to explore the jewel of the Mississippi, Wyalusing State Park. You'll find Wyalusing just south of Prairie du Chien, 500 feet above where the Wisconsin River meets the Mississippi River. Wyalusing features Indian burial mounds, canoe trail, bird watching. It's a place to go for fishing, boating, bicycling, picnicking, and enjoying nature. There is an interpretive center and four historical markers within the park. There are two campgrounds within the park (along with two group camps), Wisconsin Ridge, which features the campsites on the cliff with the spectacular views, and Homestead. A new shower facility was recently built in Wisconsin Ridge. The state park itself is top-notch, but the campground is slightly crowded (lacks privacy) and not all well shaded. But the beauty makes up for all that! EXCELLENT SITES: 135, 146, 148, 155 VERY GOOD SITES: 132e, 138e, 140e, 145e, 149e, 153e
