Beautiful drive up to this park and the views are astounding (fall is amazing). Whether you're doing a day trip down highway 35 in Wisconsin, or highway 61 in Minnesota, it's well worth a drive up to this park.

It's a great place to just sit and read a book, or just sit and watch all the people driving by. Very relaxing.

A must see if you're in the Alma area. Spectacular views of the Mississippi, town of Alma and the lock and dam. Great spots for taking pictures. Just be careful, no railing to keep you from falling.

The drive to the top of this look out is steep and a bit scary for those that don't like heights. However, the view at the top is superb! There are some swings, I believe a grill or two also. Worth a trip!

Amazing view to watch the sunset. Don't miss it! The drive up the hill is fun and looking down on the small town of Alma and seeing the Mississippi and all it's backwaters is very neat,

LOVE the view and stunning beauty of this location! Peaceful and lovely. I have been there a few times both in the summer and fall. I am a photographer and would so love to shoot a wedding there!

This is another family favorite. The view of Alma and the mighty Mississippi River are breathtaking and especially beautiful when the sun is setting. My family and many friends are so fond of this amazing place. The swings were a big hit with my close friends from Medford, since we are all retirees and remembered how much fun swinging was...
