This is a nice stop for anybody looking for some history. It's easy to get to, although there isn't alot of parking, but I'm not sure how crowded it can actually get, we were... read more

My daughter and I finally made it up there last year, we have lived here for almost 20 years and I never took the time. I am so glad I did. Like I said, not only it is educational, it is informative too about the town we lived in. I loved it!

War Eagle Monument and War Eagle park is a nice place for a short visit. The bluff gives a great view of the intersection of Iowa - South Dakota - Nebraska and there are some nice paths to walk along the bluff.

This is a nice stop for anybody looking for some history. It's easy to get to, although there isn't alot of parking, but I'm not sure how crowded it can actually get, we were fortunate to be the only visitors at that time. The monument is cool to look at and you learn a thing or two. After you are... More

It is a monument for a friend of white man. He is believed to be a very peaceful person and made friends with others to avoid bloodshed. He is buried here and the monument was erected in his memory. Unfortunately the place is not well maintained and not publicized enough. It is easy to reach. Only a gravel road as... More

The view from the Monument makes you visualize what the area must have looked like before any settlers arrived, as it overlooks the Big Sioux and Missouri rivers, as well as Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska. I think there could have been more about Chief War Eagle on the actual monument. It does mention how he was friendly towards the... More

Worth the visit if you value Indian/Native American culture. A dirt road entrance but graded and decent.

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

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.
