Hi Guys,

Went to Wingra last night 5:30pm.  Seemed to be a party there.  No parking available.  In the park I've seen people playing kickball, soccer, baseball.  Park is well used.  If you want to fish with your own boat, its all about the parking spot.  Week days 3pm or earlier may be good, weekends, before 7am.  Be patient, its their park too.  Just be ready to turn around and go someplace else.

To the guy that parked and took up 4 stalls yesterday, with the limited parking that there is at Wingra please learn to back your rig into the woods like the rest of us.

Ive been out on wingra twice on lake for a few hours and below dam and have got some musky action but not landed one yet. I did get a pike. This morning a lady who left just before me who was in a whitewater kayak left her paddle at the boat landing which I picked up. I will gladly return the kayak paddle to her  which I have in my vehicle. Here is some fishing video

Thanks musky,  threw me off when talking about 2 launches, thought there was only one and then the mention of a boat rental places launch was trying to figure out which was which or which was best?

Shark,

Like I said earlier... The launch isn't ideal, but it works. Just go early. You'll be able to launch your boat fine.

There is a small turn around down by the launch. As long as you go at a non busy time when there aren't hundreds of people there you should be fine.

Parking you will have to back your trailer over the curb onto the grass. There are no stalls large enough for a truck and trailer.
