This weekend I meet up with Dave, KZ9V, at Lake Wissota State Park, WI (POTA K-1460) for a joint Parks on the Air activation. Dave’s got something up his sleeve this time, so who knows what’s gonna happen.

Lake Wissota State Park is located in Western Wisconsin near Chippewa Falls. After the area was logged out, the Chippewa river was dammed to create the lake. The marginal glacial sand region was poor farming and in 1961 a 1000 acre state park was created. Full of new growth pines and hardwoods it’s now a year round recreation destination.
