Columbia Park is probably best known for its boating facilities with access to Lake Winnebago. A 4-slip marina is available for annual rentals, along with overnight docking for another 40-50 boats on 900 feet of harbor wall. Six boat launches and parking for 100 cars and trailers are available. A 70-foot observation tower and navigation beacon marks the harbor entrance.
Hwy 45 Wayside
Hwy 45 Wayside has a 4-lane boat launch and breakwater that was built in 2005 and provides a harbor of refuge on the west shore of Lake Winnebago. This facility is posted as a shallow launch site and is not intended for large boats.
Wolf Lake is a small county park facility which provides a one lane boat launch on the south side of the lake with a swimming beach facility located on the east side. The Wolf Lake boat launch is the only public access to the 76 acre lake.
Each of these boat launch facilities require a permit for launching. Boaters may obtain a seasonal pass which is usable at all three county facilities. Those wishing to launch without a season permit can pay a daily launch fee onsite. Fees for docking on the harbor wall at Columbia Park should be paid to the Campground Host on site.
