Must stop

Extraordinary views. Make the drive up the hill. You won't regret taking the short stroll to the overlook.

The view was spectacular. My family stopped with our 2 and 8 year old. My stress level went up substantially when they "wanted to see too." I wish I could legally leash them so they could explore without mom and dad freaking out in fear.

There are wondrful vistas along the Great River Road. Buena Vista Park ranks right up there!. Take the time to wind your way up the bluff from Alma, WI. You won't be disappointed. We saw Eagles soaring with beautiful views down and up the river.

We were shopping in Alma and the store owner told us about the Buena Vista Park and strongly suggested we visit. He even went outside with us and directed us on how to get there. The park is at the top of a bluff and has absolutely gorgeous views of the Mississippi and the surrounding area. The road up is... More

The winding car ride up to the top of the cliffs in itself is beautiful, it twists and turns and all of a sudden you are there with ample parking. As soon as you disembark from your vehicle you can already see the vista ahead is going to be spectacular. There are picnic tables, and many large shade trees, a... More

This has a beautiful view of the river but we got in right at sunset and missed it. Darn it. Nice place for a picnic and a small swing set for the kids

A short drive out of the way will treat you to an absolutely sensational overlook of the Mississippi River and one of its locks. Short walk from the parking lot provides spectacular views.

A beautiful park! After exploring the lovely Main Street of Alma, we drove up the winding, peaceful road to the bluff. Such a nice respite, Picnic tables. A nice walk to the bluff's edge where one finds spectacular views of the Mississippi River. Ample parking. Family friendly. Restrooms available but quite needing attention. A lovely park! Well manicured lawn, pruned... More
