This monument is sort of randomly placed on the side of the road. No real parking lot to speak of, not a lot of information beyond what's on the monument itself. It's a cool piece of Sioux City history but it almost feels like an afterthought.

I've been here dozens of times since I grew up close to here. And if you like history, and scenic views, this is for you too. All outdoors (no restrooms) and only a little history talked about on the plaques, but you will enjoy the stop. You can see three states and the Missouri river from up on the hill.

Usually quiet and calm, overlooks the Missouri River, Sioux City and parts of South Sioux. Little trails to walk on and you can walk up to Chief War Eagle's monument for a bit of history as well.

This is a nice tribute to the area's history. The view from the monument is beautiful, overlooking the tristate area and rivers. It's a short drive from West 4th St.

My trip happened in 1932 when our family drove from California to visit War Eagle's grave. He was my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather. The site on the bluff was open and covered with grass. There was a simple white grave stone with a rendition of the Peace and Freedom Medal given to him by President Van Buren when he... More

This is a monument to a Yankton Chief. The Yanktons were of the Sioux nation but were not warlike. War Eagle, even tough his name indicates otherwise, was a peace maker and a big help to the white man. If you are a history buff, don't pass this one up. Geographically, it is very interesting to see The Big Sioux... More

What a view! Was on top when a storm rolled in from the distance in Nebraska and it was pretty cool to see it develop. You can see Nebraska, South Dakota and of course Iowa from the point. The statue is a nice monument to a Chief. Nice attraction.

You can see three states from here. The view is great. The history surrounding War Eagle is a very important part of the area. The road leading to the monument is not the best and not well marked. Neither is the parking. If this was improved I would have rated it a 5.

This is a good stop high above the bluffs for a good view of the Tri-state region and the river. There is not much to see other than the large statue commemorating the chief.
