Calumet County Park
Calumet County Park is located northwest of the Village of Stockbridge, Wisconsin, on County Highway EE on the east shore of Lake Winnebago. Camping is available primarily from April 1 through Nov 1. We offer 71 sites, 59 of them being electric and 12 of them basic (no electricity). The electric sites have 20, 30 and some have 50 amp service. The padded sites accommodate RV’s up to 40 feet in length. We have several sites for "tents only" that are tucked into the woods. Many of our sites are along the lakeshore of Lake Winnebago. Winter activities at the park consist of sledding, snow tubing, ice fishing access to Lake Winnnebago and cross-country ski trails. In the late spring we open the bike trails. The park also provides hiking trials that go throughout the park.

|Friendship State Trail
The Friendship State Trail that connects Brillion and Forest Junction along Hwy 10 was opened in late 2003. This trail was developed in partnership with the WI DNR, Calumet County and the Friends of the Friendship Trail.
This 4-mile trail passes through woods, scenic farmland and portions of the City of Brillion. The trail passes by Brillion High School and connects with the Fox River Trail in Forest Junction.
The trail can be used for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. No motorized vehicles are permitted during the hiking, biking, and horseback riding season.
|Fox River State Trail
A 13.5-mile multiple-use state recreation trail runs between Green Bay and Greenleaf. The southern portion of the trail south of Heritage Road is 7.7 miles long and permits horseback riding on bridle paths along side the trail corridor. Access to the trail is at Heritage Rd off of Cty Rd PP near De Pere and north of Forest Junction on Holmes Road. The horse trail and regular limestone trail briefly join to cross a waterway, but the rest of the horse trail runs parallel to the regular trail. The Fox River Trail connects with the Brown County portion of the trail at the Brown/Calumet County line then heads south to Ott Rd. just north of Hilbert. The trail from Center Road to Ott Road is closed for the deer gun hunting season. Please do not use that section of trail at all during that time period. The trail can be used for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. No motorized vehicles are permitted during the hiking, biking, and horseback riding season. In winter this trail is part of the Calumet County Snowmobile Trail. There is no charge for the Calumet County portion of the Fox River Trail.

Snow Tube Hill at Calumet County Park

The daily tube hill admission is $6.00 per person which includes tube. (Approximately 250 tubes are available) A deposit for the tube is also required.
A deposit can be one of the following items: $20, drivers license, or credit card. Deposit will be returned to you upon return of parks tubes.
Only tubes provided by the tube hill are permitted on the tube hill.
The hill is open on weekends from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM during periods of sustainable snow. We may also be open daily during the Christmas holidays if we have sustainable snow. We also provide one hill for use of your own sleds, snowboards and other non inflatable devices (no tow on that hill).
There are refreshments available at Coffee Tree Lodge on days that the tube hill is open.
You can also call the 24 hour Parks Activity Line at 920.849.1494 to obtain the latest recorded information. Conditions change rapidly so a call ahead may be worth your while. We do close when the wind chill reaches -20 degrees.
