“A must see if you are in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We always stop in and take a look. Right off the main road. Great overlook on the river. Great for a picnic and rest stop if you need. Hummingbird feeders are hanging in the trees by the visitor center and you can get within 10 feet of them. The overlook is great! You can see for miles.

“Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I wish we had more time, this park was great! It has an awesome view of the Mississippi river and the Wisconsin river. There are trails you could hike. Great place to stop and see.

“The View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great clean park with a million dollar view over the MIssissippi. They have a little snack counter but not an incredible choice of snacks. They do have weddings out there so you may find yur self in someone's wedding photos.

“Great Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The park combines a small, well-maintained campground with a separate and spectacular overview of the junction of the Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers. The overlook is a short walk from the parking lot. A small shop provides some essentials; cash only. No admission charge.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I have been coming to this park for about 20 years. There are breath taking views of the Mississippi below, deer in the park, and eagles soaring above. Perfect for an afternoon walk.
