Governor Thompson Park is a 2,800-acre Wisconsin state park approximately 15 miles northwest of Crivitz. The park contains 6.5 miles of shoreline on the Caldron Falls Flowage, part of the Peshtigo River, and 5,300 feet of shoreline on two small kettle lakes. Adjacent lands are part of the Peshtigo River State Forest. The park was created in 2000, the centennial year of the Wisconsin state park system, and named after then Governor Tommy Thompson. The main parcel creating the park is the former 1,987-acre Paust Woods Lake Resort and about 200 acres of wild-looking lake front bought from Wisconsin Public Service Corporation on Caldron Falls Flowage.
