This is a great place to visit in the spring, summer and fall, and there is always some special activity or lecture or special travel presentation occurring throughout the year. Great for all ages. We especially enjoyed the canoe trips down local rivers last year.

A couple of paved and unpaved circular paths that traverse the park boundary and some include cut-offs. My wife and I enjoy the solitude.

Always enjoy visiting Severson Dells walking around listening and observing birds. But they specialize in providing nature education to young people.

I've gone to this place many times on field trips with my class. We hike and learn about nature from the wonderful volunteers. Recently , they built an outdoor playground that is like nothing I've seen before. My sons really enjoy it. It's so different from a typical playground.

We enjoy walking the trails and seeing nature. The trails are easy and refreshing. Good way to get your exercise.
