“Excellent”

Great sites, views, and trails with a little store for goodies and such. Right on the Mississippi. Been there a few times and will probably go back. Highly recommend.

“Scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

The park is beautiful and has good walking trails.The Mississippi river is below the park and has boat docks and a pretty good little eat place at the docks.Get yourself a river map if you don't know the area ,because there are so many sloughs and islands that you could actually get lost.

“Very enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for our very first tent camping trip. We were pleasently surpised at the amenities. The sites were spaced out all with a picnic table and fire ring! The bathrooms and showers were fine, the hiking trails were amazing, the views of the river from the lookouts were awesome!! We planned on 2 nights and ended up staying a third night. We look forward to camping there again in the future.
