The Friends of Rib Mountain State Park is a non-profit organization dedicated to the betterment of the park.  Located in Wausau, Wisconsin, we invite you to experience all that Rib Mountain has to offer – take a stroll up Park Road, hike the many trails the park has to offer, climb the observation tower for a fantastic view of the surrounding area, come listen to our summer concerts, or attend one of our many naturalist programs about wildlife or area history. And please contact the Friends of Rib Mountain State Park if you have program or event suggestions, or would like to join the Friends group.


Established as a state park in 1934. Rib Mountain is the third highest point in Wisconsin at 1,942 feet above sea level and, at 741 feet above the surrounding terrain, and is the tallest hill in Wisconsin.


The Top of the Rib concession stand is managed by the Friends of Rib Mountain. Stop by to view all the items for sale. All proceeds benefit park programs and operations.


With our park facilities available to the public, we can help make your next wedding or event, one you will never forget.

In every walk with nature
one receives far more than he seeks
