I can see Russia from here

Just kidding, but the view is spectacular. It's a long way up with a nice breeze on a hot summer day.

Structurally unsafe. Do the hike instead, down to the beach, and to the look out terrace which is lovely.

Even people with a fear of heights (like my lovely wife) will appreciate the unequalled view from the top of Eagle Tower. The tower is so massive that it doesn't shake very much, as I've felt in other similar ranger towers. But if you want a commanding view of Peninsula State Park, you've got to check this out.

This tower is a great place to get some fresh air and have an expansive view of the surrounding park and water. However, due to structural concerns, the tower is currently closed.

It was still photogenic from the ground, but closed to tourists during the week of Memorial Day. I'm a bit surprised that they didn't have it inspected earlier in the year so they could fix things before tourist season.

This WAS a great spot but due to safety concerns it is now closed. There are not yet plans to reopen, I'm sure they will have to raise some money for this, so if you've been to the park and enjoyed Eagle Tower in the past I suggest you stop in the Ranger office and ask what we can do... More

If you are not afraid of heights, you will want to climb to the top of Eagles Tower for the commanding view of the surrounding area and water.

Great tower with a great view. Awesome view of horseshoe island. Lots of stairs but well worth it. Don't let the negative reviews stop you from missing out on something well worth seeing.

3 platforms so if you do not want tomgo all the way up to get a good view you can stop at one of the lower platforms. But if you can go all the way to the top! It is worth it to see a fantastic view.
