All of the campsites have a firepit, some with cooking grates and all sites have a picnic table. The "shower shack" is shared by all guests and has 2 separate 3/4 baths with all modern plumbing. There is also a basic outdoor kitchen with a few portable grills as well as a sink with modern plumbing.

The best camping near Lake Herman State Park guide

Overview

About

Lest you feel like an intrepid explorer stumbling upon uncharted territory, remember this: Lake Herman has been a popular camping area for hundreds of years. That doesn’t make it any less awesome, though! It’s an oldie, and a goodie, so come on out. The state park is situated on a peninsula, so you’ll snag some fantastic views of the lake. Seeing all of that beauty will inevitably make you want to get on the water, so get ready for some boating and fishing fun. On dry land, have a wander and check out the different varieties of wildlife that like to hang out in the native oak woods and tall prairie grasses. In the winter, the park morphs into a fantastic cross country skiing area.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Lake Herman State Park is during the warmer months, from late spring to early fall, when the park's full splendor is on display. Winter can be harsh, with limited access and activities due to snow and ice.

Know before you go

  • Check weather conditions before your visit to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, to plan your activities accordingly.
  • Remember to pack essentials like water, sunscreen, and insect repellent for a comfortable outing.
  • Stay informed about any trail closures or special advisories by contacting the park's customer service.
  • Accessibility options are available; inquire ahead for specific needs.
