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 baseball field.
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.
Past improvements at Waupun County Park include the expansion 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. In 2005, 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.
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.
