Babcock County Park

Babcock County Park is located on the east side of Lake Waubesa at the outflow of the Yahara River near the Village of McFarland on U.S. Highway 51. The 37-acre park offers a boat launch, fish cleaning facility, and accessible fishing pier. It also has a 25-unit campground with electricity supplied to all sites, a fully accessible bathroom and shower, and a sanitary dump station.

The park is named after Stephen Babcock, Wisconsin dairy scientist, known internationally for discovering the method for determining the percentage of butterfat found in milk.
