Calumet County Park
This lovely 200-acre county park is located due south of High Cliff State Park on the eastern shore of Lake Winnebago. It offers 71 campsites, a marina and boat launch, a concession building, five miles of hiking/mountain biking trails, and historic Indian effigy mounds. It boasts the best warbler viewing in the county including Connecticut, Prairie and Black-throated Blues. Look for small shorebirds feeding along the beaches in spring and fall as well as many species of ducks just off shore. American White Pelicans nest on this lake and are interesting to see as they fly in graceful formations overhead.
Directions: From Sherwood, drive south five miles on Hwy 55 to Cty EE west 1.5 miles to the park entrance.
