Wisconsin currently has 66 state park units, covering more than 60,570 acres, 43 State Trails open to the public, covering more than 1,700 miles, and more than 6,000 campsites in the Wisconsin State Park System.

That’s a lot to choose from!

All of us have a favorite. Whether it’s a state park along the bluffs of the Mississippi River or along the shores of Lake Superior, or the Southern Kettle Morraine, or near the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. Wisconsin has so many choices.

And, that is what the Wisconsin Friend’s Challenge for 2022 is all about - offering choices. We encourage families and individuals to expand their horizons. Find something new and wonderful. Experience Wisconsin’s great outdoors.

Start new traditions and memories.

The Wisconsin Friends Challenge for 2022 has over forty challenges. Challenges encompassing flora and fauna, camping, horseback riding, biking, photography, and a few more. This year, there are even challenges just for children.

Wisconsin Friend’s Explore Challenge for 2022 has created an app, enabling our challenge seekers to search out nearby challenges easily. The app has special photography enhancements making it easy to create instant memories and share with others on social media if you wish.
