Get out and explore nature! Hike, bike, swim or camp just for starters. Look for one of the many geocaches in the park, bring your horse in for a trail ride, rent a kayak – there are endless ways to enjoy Hartman Creek.
Plants, Animals and Natural Features
With over 1400 acres along the edge of the glaciers in the last ice age, there’s a lot to see when you explore the park. Wildflowers in spring, migrating animals, summer birds and animals, the remains of the glacial edge that cut through the park 12,000 years – there is lots to find in the park.
Explore the history before Hartman Creek was a park. Go back in time to the 1840s with the Hellestad House – an original restored settler’s cabin. See the remains of the fishery that was once at Allen Lake, and go through the peaceful Whispering Pines which was once a huge tourist attraction on the Chain O’ Lakes.
The Waupaca and Chain O Lakes area has so much to see and do any season! Restaurants, activities and stores close by in Waupaca, King and all around the lakes.
