Governor Thompson State Park is a 2,800-acre (1,133 ha) Wisconsin state park in development approximately 15 miles (24 km) northwest of Crivitz. The park contains 6.5 miles (10.5 km) of shoreline on the Caldron Falls Reservoir, part of the Peshtigo River, and 5,300 feet (1,600 m) 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 (8.04 km2) Paust Woods Lake Resort and about 200 acres (0.81 km2) of wild-looking lakefront bought from Wisconsin Public Service Corporation on Caldron Falls Flowage.
