It may come as a surprise, but Wisconsin is a wonderful destination for enjoying fall colors. It has many amazing spots to watch the leaves turn golden, and Devil's Lake is one of them. Located in the picturesque Devil's Lake State Park in Wisconsin, the lake has all conditions for an unforgettable fall getaway.

The Devil's Lake area is glowing with color each fall. With lush and rusty trees, the place will give you a fairytale vibe. In the park, you can rejoice in dense forests, covered with the seasonal "golden fog," go hiking, throw a picnic, or just take a slow walk along the lake shore. The lake is a magnificent place to enjoy autumn with your family, and the reflections of red and orange trees in the water create a perfect spot for taking Pinterest-like photos.

When to go

The first golden leaves appear in early September, but the real foliage season doesn't begin until the month's third week. The peak time of autumn colors in Devil's Lake State Park falls from late September through early October. During this time, you can see a diversity of amber hues on and around the lake. But remember that the park is extremely busy this time of year (due to many tourists coming to the area), so you may want to book your accommodation in advance–check out the map below for the best housing options.
