Hartman Creek State Park

Before being established as a state park in 1966, Hartman Creek was a fish hatchery, where dams were built to create four spring-fed lakes; Allen, Hartman, Grebe and Middle. The park is located on part of the terminal moraine of the Wisconsin glacier and potholes, gullies and springs feed the lakes.

The lakes have largemouth bass, perch, bluegill and other panfish. Fishing piers, accessible to persons with disabilities, are along the east shore of Allen Lake and at Whispering Pines on Marl Lake.

Anglers of any age may check out basic fishing equipment free of charge at the park office. This equipment was donated by the Tackle Loaner Program. Call the park office to find out what equipment is available.
