Our County Parks

Murwin Park 

Another of the many beautiful parks Rock County offers it’s residents is Murwin Park. This park is named for the Murwin family, who donated land for the purpose of creating a park. Rock County acquired the rest of the land and you can find this lovely park off County H at 6407 W. Caledonia Rd, just outside of Fulton. This park covers 40+ acres along the Yahara River and extends across both sides of the road, with ample parking on both sides.

It’s a well-kept park that provides a good access for entry and exit to the river for canoes and kayaks. Fishing is also allowed and from what I’ve been able to verify bluegill, crappie and bullhead can be caught.

The park provides garbage bins in the parking lot, water, a few picnic table and grills, as well as bathrooms. For large gatherings in the park I would suggest bringing extra camp tables just in case you might need them. There is plenty of open space for games like frisbee or volley ball. And at the far end of the park there is a  walking trail along the river. I am not sure how far it goes, but it looks like a nice trail for bird watching.

 

Murwin Park is a wonderful spot and worth the trip to get there.  I’m sure you will have a relaxing time. For more information about reserving the park or any other questions call the Count Parks Sept. at 608-757-5451.
