Perrot State Park

These are our reservation seasons. The rest of the time is a walk-in season.

We no longer offer winter camping, however, if you would like to hike into the campground we will allow it during our winter seasons:

All sites are reservable. One wheeled camper and a maximum of two vehicles are allowed per site. Camper and vehicles are restricted to the graveled spur. Tents must be kept inside the mowed or signed site limits. Extra vehicle parking is available at the entrance to the campground. All campers must arrive and be set up by 11pm. No overnight boat mooring.

Pets must be leashed (under 8') and attended at all times.

Vehicle admission stickers are required.Click here for cost of the sticker.

The new visitor center is located on the east end of the park, so it is recommended that park visitors enter the park using the east entrance through the Village of Trempealeau.
