Our in-laws used to travel 55 miles to bring their kids to this park on the shore of Lake Winnebago. We often picnic by the lake which is known for walleyes and sturgeon. In summer, paddle boats, a rideable train and carousel are popular as is the climbable lighthouse.

Beautiful during Christmas time with all the lights, and a great place for homecoming, prom, or Winterfest photos.

Lakeside Park is on of the best looking parks in Wisconsin. Located at the bottom of Lake Winnebago it's a fun park to visit. In the summer time there is a small little area that offers a train ride, Merry go Round and a mid 1900's vintage cart ride for little kids. Next door is a petting zoo. Across from... More

I grew up in Fond du Lac and am very familiar with Lakeside Park and visit it every time I return. At Christmas it is spectacular with lights and LED light show synced to music on your car radio. The lighthouse is open in the summer (on Lake Winnebago) and the view is worth the climb to the top. There... More

This is a nice park year around on the shore of Lake Winebago. There is a kiddyland and paddle boats for rent. The shelters are great to group picnics. But at this time of year be sure to drive through to see the Christmas lights and displays. It's always good but this year they have really outdone themselves.
