Major Achievements

In 2014, the Wisconsin Department of Tourism named High Cliff State Park as one of the Seven Natural Wonders in Wisconsin. Our board is energized and excited to keep up our efforts to support High Cliff State Park to make the park is a place where people can experience the beauty and wonders of nature, relax and refresh their spirits, and/or enjoy the many outdoor recreational activities.

Since 1997, the Friends of High Cliff have been busy both physically working on as well as raising funds to complete many small and large projects to enhance High Cliff State Park. We were honored in 2006 and in 2012 to be named "Friends Group of the Year" by the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks. Enjoy the many pictures of accomplishment of our organization.
