Throughout summer months, the park hosts a number of free public events such as beach bonfires, the annual urban island beach party, bird and plant hikes, children’s fishing clinics, family nights, art in the park and educational discussions. Check the calendar frequently for upcoming programs!

Spring Equinox Hike–Cancelled

21st March 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


In light of COVID-19, our teams are closely following guidelines from the Department of Health Services (DHS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization (WHO). 

We continue to receive the most up-to-date information, including new guidance from DHS which recommends cancelling or postponing non-essential gatherings of people to help protect Wisconsinites from the spread of COVID-19, particularly those who are most vulnerable to infection and severe disease. 

 As such, the DNR will cancel the following event: Spring Equinox Hike at Lakeshore State Park

 We look forward to resuming events later in the season!  

The Spring Equinox represents new life & new beginnings and encourages new ideas. As the time of equal day & night, it also represents balance & contrast.  Join us for a walk through LSP to observe the signs of winter trying to hold on & look for signs of Spring trying to break through. Embrace this joyful change of seasons and allow the energy of Spring to reawaken your senses.

Meet at North Entrance.
