Glacier Hills County Park is located on what geologists term an interlobate moraine. Between ten and twenty thousand years ago, the Green Bay and Lake Michigan Glacier Lobes butted against each other. When they receded, approximately 10,000 years ago, they left the interesting and unique landform we call the Kettle Moraine.
Glacier Hills County Park, originally developed as St. Amelians Orphanage Youth Camp, became a Washington County Park in 1976. The park consists of 140 acres of land and includes approximately 1200 feet of frontage on Friess Lake.
The gravel soil, deposited as a result of glacial action, supports a forest of oaks, maples, basswood, ironwood, elm and birch. Over 120 varieties of birds have been observed in the park.
Glacial formations can be seen along the trails that wind around depressions called kettles, across rounded kames, and over a sinewy esker that was once the bed of a subglacial river. The rounded pebbles and gravel soil, typical of the interlobate moraine area, are indicative of the powerful grinding force of the glacier. Ponds, marshes,and a bog can be found at the base of several of the kettle holes. Friess Lake was formed from the melting of a giant ice block left by the receding glacier.
Thank you in advance for considering renting a Glacier Hills Rustic Cabin on Friess Lake! Each cabin consist of a 400 sq. ft. main room, a small storage closet, and a private deck with forest and lake views. Each cabin is furnished with bunk beds, kitchen table, sofa and chairs, and some minor entertainment luxuries (like board games and a small TV so you donít miss out on that big Packer or Badger Football game!). Each cabin also has a private fire ring and grill.
There is electricity in each cabin, however there is no plumbing. No worries though, there is a portable restroom and drinking water just outside the cabin. There are also flush restrooms and showers at the main hall which is just on top the hill in the park.
Friess Lake is 121 acres and 48 feet deep, itís also home to panfish, largemouth bass, northern pike, and walleye. Canoers and kayakers can also explore Little Friess Lake and get away from all the larger boats and enjoy nature. Canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards are available for rent at the self-rent kiosk by the lake.
