Barron County Parks and Campgrounds

Barron Blue Hills

If you love the outdoors, these beautiful and varied hills are a great source for recreation. They appear blue on hazy days and are a legacy left us by the great glaciers of long ago. At one time they were actually a mountain range reaching a height of 20,000 feet.
