Magnolia Bluff County Park is located approximately 18 miles from central Janesville. The park is just south of Evansville, and located 1/2 miles south of the intersection of State Hwy 59 and Croak Road, on Croak Road.

A portion of this park is designated as a Wisconsin State Natural Area (SNA). SNAs protect outstanding examples of Wisconsin's native landscape, significant geological formations and archaeological sites. This designation was made cooperatively with Rock County and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The land management is also a cooperative venture. To learn more, please read the State Natural Area brochure.

This 120 acre park features beautiful rock outcroppings and vistas. Because this park has steep areas and rock outcroppings, caution must be used by all park visitors. Picnic tables, grills, drinking water, and restroom facilities are provided. In an effort to keep the areas as pleasing as possible, dumpsters are provided.

Two trails are featured: one a bridle and nature trail; the other a cross-country ski and hiking trail. The bridle trail was made possible through the efforts of the Tri-County Riders Club and is also open for walking. The cross-country ski and hiking trail was constructed by the YACC (Young Adult Conservation Corps) in 1981 with funding for materials and supplies provided by Rock County. Skiing trails are not groomed. The trails of Magnolia Bluff Park are open every day from dawn to dusk. Skiing at night is not permitted for safety reasons.
