The Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is a 678-acre (274 ha) unit of the Wisconsin state park system. The unit is located just east of Hartford, Wisconsin on State Highway 60, on the east shore of the 446-acre (180 ha) Pike Lake. It was dedicated by Wisconsin governor Patrick J. Lucey in June 1971.

The park provides a campground, a beach, an observation tower, hiking and biking trails and a naturalist program. A section of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail runs through the park as it follows the Kettle Moraine.
