High Cliff State Park is the only state-owned recreational area on Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin's largest inland lake. The park gets its name from the limestone cliff of the Niagara Escarpment, which parallels the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago. The magnificent 12-foot statue of Winnebago Indian Chief Red Bird, standing high on a huge granite rock, overlooks the lake and is a popular destination in the park.  Climb the nearby 40-foot observation tower for beautiful Lake Winnebago views.

The marina has over 100 slips available for rent. For transient slip rentals, call the marina at (920) 989-1349 (Memorial Day through Labor Day) or (920) 460-6679 (off-season) . For seasonal slip rentals, contact the Harbor Commission. Slip rentals include the use of the marina shower building.

The park's marina offers concessions from Memorial Day through Labor Day and some weekends in the spring and fall as staffing allows. Park visitors may purchase food and beverages, as well as ice and general camping/boating supplies.

Rods, reels and basic tackle are available at the park office through the tackle loaner program. There is no cost to borrow the equipment. You will need to provide your own bait.

A Vehicle Admission Sticker is required to enter the park. Prices are as follows: a daily sticker for a WI resident is $8.00 ($3.00 ages 65+), annual resident stickers are $28.00 ($13.00 ages 65+). Non-WI resident daily stickers are $11.00 and non-WI resident annual stickers are $38.00.
