The Magic of Autumn Bonfires

There’s something about an autumn bonfire. Maybe it’s the contrast of a fire’s warmth to the cool crisp fall air, or perhaps the smell of wood smoke pairs well with turning leaves and freshly harvested fields.

For the month of October you’re invited to experience your own autumn bonfire at Pietrek Park, for free! This is a perfect weekend activity for friends, family, or groups to come together to roast marshmallows or hot dogs, tell scary stories, and enjoy the outdoors of Trempealeau County.

All we ask is that you clean-up after yourself, put out your fire when you’re finished, and leave the park by 10:30 p.m. to be respectful of those camping on the grounds.

The best spots for autumn bonfires at the park are in the metal fire rings in the group campsites across the road from the Lower Shelter building and down in the lower campground area by the river. Free campfire wood is available from the stack just north of the main shower/bathroom facility.

Create fun autumn memories with your friends and families around a bonfire at Pietrek Park!
