Very nice views and an amazing way to get some exercise very quiet and surrounded by nature it a picnic area, a lake, and lots of hiking trails. If you really want to disconnect from the regular day thinks this is the perfect place to escape .

It's a nice half-day or full-day outing near Sioux City. There are lookout and picnic facilities dotted throughout the park with incredible scenery. Everything is very tranquil. There are hills, trees, and an abundance of plants and wildlife. It wasn't crowded at all when I was there; I guess it may be considered a hidden gem. It's a nice place... More

A large park. Good for a hike or a casual drive. Shelters for picnicking and places to camp. Add the fabulous view from the Loess Hills and WOW you've had a great day in nature for the cost of your fuel to get there.

This is my most favorite place to go on photo hikes alone and with the family. There are a variety of different trails at all different difficulty levels. It has a wide variety of wildlife. (There is a huge deer herd that resides there.) There is also a wide variety of wildflowers. It has fantastic views of the Big Sioux... More

Hills, dense woods, wildlife, great views of three states and lots of trails. The Dorothy Pecaut nature center is nearby (the trails connect). You can make a day of hiking both places.

A great experience in the Loess Hills of Sioux City. There are many hiking trails, camping, scenic hill side views, and lodges for special events. Great to, walk, drive, bike and relax. There is even a small lake. If it's the right time of year you will see many Hawks, and maybe even a Bald Eagle! Located just down the... More

Carved during the last ice age, this park has hidden gems throughout like boulder left by glaciers, a quiet vantage point where three states touch.

I had planned to hike here but it was raining, but i drove through anyway and it was beautiful. I wish i could have hiked. I might come back to town just to hike here. There are several lookouts with beautiful views of the woods and the city. It seemed a little tricky to get there (and my gps got... More

I often drive through Stone Park on my way from my friend's house back to mine. It's always quiet and peaceful with different sights to see depending on the season. My favorite season is fall to catch the many colors of the changing leaves and grasses. Go up on one of the ridges and look out over the surrounding areas...so... More

We drove through Stone State Park after an early morning rain. I think we were the only car in the park. We enjoyed the scenic outlook but made the mistake of leaving our car doors open and a bunch of mosquitos flew in the car. LOL, our error. It seems like a nice place for a short hike or picnic,...
