Lapham Peak Interactive was developed with the intention of providing information to people who visit Lapham Peak in an exciting new way. For those who wonder and want to know more about what they see as they make their way through this beautiful property, the QR codes installed around the park provide some additional information through text, photos and videos of plant and animal life that can be found here. So many of us are walking around with devices that can open our minds to the world around us. Simply point the camera on your mobile device at one of the QR codes and be taken to webpages that will explain, educate and enlighten. With an emphasis on education and identification, we welcome comments and suggestions for improvement or clarification.
The Lapham Peak Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, or "Lapham Peak State Park" is located in Delafield, Wisconsin in the heart of the Lake Country, Wisconsin area. It is located one mile south of I-94 (exit 285), 25 miles west of Milwaukee and 45 miles east of Madison, Wisconsin.
The park, named after Increase Lapham, has a focal point of a 45 foot observation tower atop the highest point in Waukesha County. The park's glaciated topography provides excellent hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing on lighted trails. An abundance of wildlife and wildflowers, and a butterfly garden are present in the park.
