Who We Are

Our Role

Our group is comprised of people who have fallen in love with Hartman Creek State Park.

We are park neighbors, first-time visitors, and yearly campers. We come from Wisconsin, the Midwest, and across the nation. We treasure the quiet, safe, and friendly atmosphere so prevalent at Hartman Creek. We embrace the many lakes in and around the park, the kettles and ridges left behind by the Wisconsin glacier, former Indian trails, and campsites, and the patchwork of pine, orchard, meadow, and mixed forest which blankets the land today.

And we want to see Hartman Creek retain the beauty and qualities that draw people back time and again. People return to the park not only to enjoy the 100 campsites and five group sites, but also the spirit of the land.

The Friends first came together in 1982 and regrouped in 1994. We have signed a contract with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources which designates us as the park's official support group, strengthening the web of the Friends' group network statewide in the Wisconsin State Park System.
