Numerous shelters are scattered throughout the park for reservations and parties. They're off and restrooms and pull up areas to just enjoy the views. A good place for an... More

Wild life at its best. Trails to follow and the scenery is awesome! Make sure you go to the top of a hill so you can see three states, IA, Ne, and SD

Small, but beautifully kept state park. They have a couple overlooks with great views of the land. Worth a visit if you're looking for something to do!

Had signs, but got lost after a little bit. Didn't have any hiking trails. The view at the top of the mountains was spectacular. Took our breaths away!!

Supposedly the last wild bison in Iowa was shot here in the bluffs overlooking the Big Sioux and Missouri rivers. Overlooks South Dakota.

This is a beautiful park that if you have some time is a can't miss. It's literally right in town but feels like you're miles away. There are some super easy hiking trails, some playground equipment for the kiddos and even a lake! Great place to unwind and see some scenery! There is also a nature center that we've not... More

I drive through and hike there regularly----the only down side is when some people picnic there with loud portable stereos going-----try to go at times when people are not eating there!

I grew up not far from this park. I've hiked the trails every season. My wife and I drive thru the park during the fall of the year and watch the leaves turn beautiful colors. We used to park on Dakota point and watch the submarine races on the Big Sioux River!!

It's a great place to go for a walk with your loved one. Just get out of the house. The full circle is not super far to walk. Nice lake. Great views. Some people talked about it used to be a Zoo and some lost bears....

Stone State Park on the northern border of Sioux City is a gem. The park is on very hilly terrain. It is a great place for a picnic or hike. There are several off road trails for horses and mountain bikers. There are some shelters but they are limited so reserve early.
