High Cliff State Park is situated high on limestone cliffs near Menasha, Wisconsin. The
1,145-acre park overlooks Lake Winnebago, the largest inland lake in the state and one of
the largest in the country. The lake is named for Chief Winnebago, and a 12-foot statue of
him stands on a limestone bluff overlooking the lake. The park also has many prehistoric
effigy mounds, a historic lime kiln and an abandoned limestone quarry. There is a
year-round trail system for hiking, biking and cross-country skiing in the winter.
Campgrounds, a marina and a swimming beach are open in the summer.The park’s visitor
center provides information on the area’s geology and history.
