Good view of South Sioux City and the Missouri River. Nice shaded picnic tables. Has a rest room. It's not on I-29 but to get there from I-29 exit 143 Singing Hills Blvd, it's about 1 mile north on old Highway 75.

This is a rather large obelisk that faces a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, downtown Sioux City and the I-29. It's high enough for you to get a pretty nice view of the surroundings. The obelisk is a big stone tower. It's not much to look at, unless you're really into obelisks. The history behind the commemoration is more interesting... More

Great that this monument of 22 year old Sergeant Floyd was put into place. He was the only member of the Lewis & Clark expedition -- 8,000 miles -- 4 years journey to pass away.

It was rainy and cloudy on the day of our visit, but I'd read the story about Sergeant Floyd so I really wanted to stop in. We certainly couldn't see much due to the clouds and the rain, but In good weather, I think the view would be really nice. Since there's no cost, it's certainly worth a stop. There's... More

Located along Hwy 75 near the First Brides Grave, this monument is a great spot to take in the view. You can see downtown Sioux City and the wonderful I-29 construction project that is going on. The monument is the burial site for Sgt Floyd who was the only person to die during the Lewis & Clark Expedition in 1804.... More

This monument stands high on a hill overlooking the Missouri River, providing a nice view of the surrounding area. It's a very cool replica of the one in Washington, DC. There is some history from the L&C Expedition too. Definitely stop by if you have time, it won't be but a quick visit!

It was nice to sit up on the hill and look out at the river and the green lush grass. It is nice to read some history too.

Very neat, historical attraction. The view of the river and Nebraska was beautiful. I wish the information signs were updated. They were very weathered.

The view is great from the hill top but it lacks for information and artifacts of the expedition of Lewis and Clark, we found the park in Onawa, Iowa more interesting, avoid on cold windy days.
