Nice and quiet! :)

You drive up a dirt road and make sure you turn where it says one way because the straight road is for cars coming down. It's a nice little walk and to look at the plaques and... read more

You drive up a dirt road and make sure you turn where it says one way because the straight road is for cars coming down. It's a nice little walk and to look at the plaques and over view of the city. And from other reviewers its all 3 states so that's pretty cool! There's also a path that continues... More

It is beautiful and a lot cleaner / taken care of. It also has some nice trails. It is very kid friendly and great for the whole family.

Chief War Eagle monument and grave. Grove Street and War Eagle Drive, Sioux City, IA. Watch carefully for the inadequate signs. Park along the park road and walk a bit uphill. In the fall of 1851 War Eagle died and was buried on top of the high bluff overlooking the confluence of the Big Sioux and Missouri. A sign indicates... More

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.

Was well worth the walk! So much history and great photos. You get a feel of our past history when you are there. Wonderful views from the top! Terrific photo scenes.

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
