Dells of Eau Claire County Park Campground
These dells deserve their designation as a state natural area. All Wisconsinites should see the Dells of Eau Claire. After all, the state deemed them significant enough to be preserved as a state natural area. The park’s name might confuse folks trying to locate it. This is not “the Dells” that are so well-known in Wisconsin; those Dells are located on the Wisconsin River and are surrounded by tourist traps. No, the Dells of Eau Claire are located on the Eau Claire River, just east of Wausau in Marathon County, which operates the campground, trails, and swim beach. The name “Eau Claire” can also add to the confusion— there is an Eau Claire County, the city of Eau Claire, and three Eau Claire rivers in Wisconsin. Regardless of the confusion, visiting this park is well worth your time. Visitors will see amazing rock formations surrounded by cascading water and unusual plants. This recreational development has enhanced the work of Mother Nature, making these dells easier for tent campers to enjoy. I don’t want to mislead you—the natural landscape is the star of the show here. It was two million years in the making.
