Summer or winter, fishermen like using the boat launch at Wilson Hill Park- a perfect location that allows access to Upper Hamlin Lake. In the winter months, the park is a popular spot to get on the lake when it is frozen over for ice fishing or snowmobiling. There’s plenty of parking, with enough area for boat trailers. It’s also a good location to stop and take a break. With picnic tables to sit, grills to make a lunch, and a port-a-potty, Wilson Hill Park is a nice family park to visit when in the Upper Hamlin Lake area.
