The park is not open to vehicles, no park employees are on staff but you can park at an entrance & hike. It offers wooded trails with beautiful scenic lookouts. It's quiet, you'll most likely see a deer or squirrel before you see another person.

Beautiful state park with lots of trees and hills. It is breath taking when then leaves are changing color!

Nice winding roads and trails through out the park, being free helped out too, on the highest overlook turnout was beautiful views of South Dakota and the park, we counted at least 20 eagles and hawks soaring above on the thermals, which was a surprise since it was so cold and windy, but with the abundance of rabbits and squirrels...

This is a great park with camping, hiking, and nice picnic areas. Only complaint is that it can get a little crowded at times during summer and at times can feel like you are right on top of other people. Its a great place to be so that is understandable.

The park itself is a mixture of woodland, prairie and lots of hills. There is camping available and several nice picnic areas for large or small groups. The nature center off Hiway 12 is... More

Great for a short visit of family camping, sightseeing, and hiking. This is a beautiful, peaceful park that feels remoTe but is close to everything. We spent 3 nights in one of the two cabins they have. Ours was "pet friendly" and smelled like an animal had sprayed when we first arrived, but we were able to air it out... More

for a picnic or a hike or bird watching. Great for the whole family. Hike to the top of some bluffs for a real nice view of the area.

This is an older state park on the Iowa/SD border. There are some great views of the Loess Hills here as well as some the the old CCC buildings.

Peaceful, pretty, lots of trails to walk on and explore. There are picnic areas, and a few out of the way spots worth finding. It would be nice to be able to reserve a pavilion here and have an event. Close enough to town for something you need but far enough away to get immersed in nature.
