There isn't a lot to see, but is worth a short stop. Make sure to sign the guest book at the entrance.

The only member of the Lewis and Clark expedition to die and the first soldier to die west of the Mississippi. The view of the river is a bonus for your visit. Walk the pathway and read about the history. For a few minutes or an hour it is a peaceful place to visit on your way to the historic... More

Beautiful panoramic views overlooking the river valley where Lewis and Clark once traveled. Monument honoring the only person on the exhibition to die. The grounds are simple but well groomed. A visit could be as short as 5 min. I would recommend longer.

This monument won't knock your socks off but go while the sun is setting. It offers a great elevated view of the river and how it twists and turns and the patch work design of the fields.

You can easily see the 100' white stone obelisk which sits atop Floyd's Bluff from I-29, but if you have time take exit 243 and follow the signs north to the top of the hill. The monument is free, open year round and has interpretive signs telling of the death of Floyd, his funeral and burial, and the visit on... More

This is a cool monument, nothing terribly fancy about it, there's really nothing much else to see besides the monument itself and a few other plaques, but the area is pretty, it's clean and well maintained. Cool views of the city from up there and the plaques give a little more history of the Lewis and Clark expedition. There is... More

The only soldier to die on the Lewis and Clark Expedition is commemorated with this monument. It rises above the Missouri River and overlooks the city reminding everyone who visits of the impressive task undertaken by this group.

I've stopped by here several times over the years. If you are driving by and need to stretch your legs you can't get a better view. There is information on the history in the area. Take a minute to stop and take it all in. There is no charge.

Striking monument to the explorers and to Sgt Charles Floyd who died on the trip. Worth a stop for the marker and the spectacular view West across the river.
