Columbia Park is a 19-acre county park located on Lake Winnebago at N10340 Calumet Harbor Rd., Malone--about ten miles northeast of Fond du Lac. The park contains a modern 40-unit campground with electrical hookups and restrooms, boat and RV sanitary dump stations, a playground, a basketball court, one enclosed and one open-air picnic shelter, and picnic facilities.
Columbia Park is probably best known for its boating facilities. 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.
Columbia Park is watched over by part-time campground hosts. The campground hosts take reservations for campsites, shelters, boat slips, and docking space.
Past improvements at Columbia Park include a drainage system, boat launches, renovation of the harbor wall, two expanded and repaved parking lots, a pit toilet, a renovated bathroom with showers, connection to sanitary sewer, the construction of a shelter, landscaping and extensive boat facility improvements. These include an overflow boater's parking lot, 400 feet of additional transient and overnight dock space, dredging of the main harbor channel and a sanitary dump station for boaters and another for RVs. A fish cleaning station was constructed during the summer of 2016.
Due to the spread of the emerald ash borer, Fond du Lac County will no longer allow any firewood to be brought into either Columbia Park or Waupun County Park campgrounds. Firewood bundles will be available for purchase through the camp hosts at a cost of $5.00 per bundle. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
