I have gotten to a place in my life that I am trying to become healthier. A friend, myself and our 4 children hiked there today and the views were amazing over the Mississippi River. Definatly a GREAT workout also. We will be back soon
March 2 Stunning Beauty by Eagle Watcher
We came for the Birding and were not disappointed. Looking out over the bluffs of the Mississippi River is a sight that I will never forget. Shear beauty.
July 9 Best Park In Wisconsin by Marcy
We traveled here on July 4th and were blown away by how beautiful it was! The staff and volunteers were great. I learned vanilla will keep away gnats. So few people in the park with us which was a shame because it is a wonderful park with great views and amazing Indian Mounds. Everything was so well kept and the campsites had some spectacular views.
