Camping with a view! The spots on the bluff edge are amazing. There were turkey vultures and even a bald eagle soaring so close we felt we could reach our hand out to them. Not much space between the camp site and the edge of the bluff. I would hesitate bringing young children on one of these camp spots. There are actually two campgrounds in this park. The area away from the bluff is the Homestead camping where there is much privacy. The bluff camping area has you perched 500 feet above the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers with expansive views of both Wisconsin and Iowa. Many trains and barges are going by in this Mississippi River valley. Great night view of the Prairie du Chien Municipal Airport. We did not have a campsite reservation, and for a week night in September were able to get our first choice...spot 143E. It is the only campsite on the edge of the bluff with electricity. All spots are relatively level and a decent size with a picnic table and fire ring. The restroom/shower house in the bluff camping area is very large and modern, as well as clean. Keep in mind that atop a 500 foot bluff, it can often be windy.The negative thing for us was in the evening the breeze switched and the pit toilet across the road from our campsite emitted a horrible odor. The many walking trails are nice...we especially enjoyed the one along the bluff that becomes very adventuresome when the trail actually turns into steep stairs/ladders on the bluff! There are plenty of effigy mounds in the park also. I do remember seeing a play ground, basketball courts and tennis courts. A dump station is offered and a boat ramp too! Everything was well maintained. Keep in mind that it is not free to get into Wisconsin State Parks. Their web site has maps and details.
