Waupun County Park will remain closed through the 2018 camping season due to extensive storm damage. With continued rainfall, the ground has remained saturated and we are not able to get equipment in to clear fallen/partially fallen trees. At this time, it is simply not safe to accept campers and park users.
Customers with current reservations at Waupun County Park will be contacted by the Fond du Lac County Parks Dept. and will be offered a refund. Thank you for your understanding.
All other Fond du Lac County Parks remain open. Please call 920-929-3135 with any questions.
Waupun County Park is the second largest county park at 103 acres. It is located at 825 County Park Road (also known as County Highway MMM), on the northwest edge of the City of Waupun.
The park contains a wooded 42 unit public campground, with electrical hookups, restrooms, and showers. Other facilities include playground equipment, two open-air picnic shelters, one enclosed shelter, and a disc golf course.
The northeastern 40 acres of the park is State Natural Area #51, Waupun Park Maple Forest, with hiking and skiing trails. It is an excellent example of a southern mesic hardwood forest, with red and white oak, maple, and white ash.
Waupun County Park is watched over by part-time campground hosts. The campground hosts take reservations for campsites and park shelters. Reservations can also be made online at www.fdlcountyparks.com.
Past improvements at Waupun County Park include an expanded and re-paved parking lot, lighting in part of the park, a new pit toilet, a new pedestrian/snowmobile bridge over the South Branch of the Rock River, and a new picnic shelter. Half of the campground was rebuilt on higher ground to eliminate periodic flooding of the campground.
Another recent improvement in Waupun Park is the construction of a new campground bathroom building with showers, sinks and toilets. The new bathroom building is fully accessible. Most recently, new playground equipment was installed in Waupun Park during the summer of 2016.
