Dive into Summer

Two beautiful Badger State beaches

Looking to cool off this summer? Try these two Wisconsin beaches for an old-fashioned swimmin’ hole experience.

Sunset Lake

Swimmers in Stevens PointSunset Lake Park near Stevens Point is the perfect place for a swim this summer. Located on 18 acres near the charming community of Amherst, the park is a haven for swimmers and sunbathers seeking the smooth sand and clean, cool waters of 63-acre Sunset Lake. If you’re looking to dive into the water this summer, this might be one of the best beaches in Wisconsin.

Crystal Lake

Crystal Lake in Boulder JunctionLocated in the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest near Boulder Junction, the Crystal Lake is a blue gem amid the dark green forests. The clear water, long sandy beach and towering pines form a sort of Northwoods paradise. The perfect way to experience Crystal Lake is by riding your bike along the Crystal Lake Trail from Boulder Junction and then diving into the lake to cool off. It doesn’t get any better than that.
