Roche-A-Cri State Park, established in 1948, protects a 300-foot-high rock outcropping and Native American petroglyphs and pictographs. The name "Roche-A-Cri" comes from French words meaning "crevice in the rock." The park has 41 rustic campsites and five miles of hiking trails within a forest of large oaks and pines. Carter Creek in the park offers fishing opportunities.
The main entrance to the park is about 1.5 miles north of Friendship on State Highway 13, on the west side of the highway. The latitude is 44° 0' 3.8" and longitude 89° 48' 45.4". During winter, the main entrance is closed and visitors should park in the lot on the north side of Czech Avenue, west of State Highway 13.
The Friends of Roche-A-Cri State Park work on numerous park projects and events throughout the year, including the annual photography contest, the fall pumpkin walk and summer naturalist programs. Please contact the park office for more information or to join the Friends of Roche-A-Cri.
