Great scenery and very historically significant.
Sep 2020
Do stop and visit the Park Service office for a great history lesson. Located at a very beautiful spot with views of the bay. If driving proceed down the road to some other excellent vistas.

Interesting monument and visitor center.
Sep 2020
The visitor center is very interesting and there is a nice 15 minute film to watch to get the whole history. Then there are exhibits. The whole thing takes about 30 minutes to get through. Then another 10 to walk around the moment. Apparently in pre-covid times you could go up the monument but not now because there is no way to social distance. It was a nice way to spend an hour.

Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial Is Impressive!
Sep 2020
When visiting this memorial, I was impressed by the width and more importantly, the height! It is set by the water in an area that allows many to visit without concern for crowding. There is also a stone wall to rest on and a cemented walking path by the bay to enjoy as well. It can be seen from many locations on Small Bass Island to provide an array of photos with different points of view.

Gorgeous Views
Sep 2020
Gorgeous views of the lake. Wonderful monument with lots of open space. Dog friendly. The visitors center is opened with nice restrooms. Plenty of parking available. We went about 8:30am in the morning on a Sunday and was the only people there. Our boys enjoyed seeing the monument. Very short trip for us. But could also be a longer stop if you visit the visitor center.

Beautiful monument and grounds
Sep 2020
Lovely site, too bad the Native Americans didn’t get any of the peace or recognition.
The indigenous people helped win the battle by showing Perry a source of clean water in the cave.

Visitors Center Opened
Aug 2020
The visitors center features a well done 15 minute video explaining the significance of the monument. The rangers will run the video upon request in a socially distanced theater limited to 10 people. Rangers were located around the monument to respond to questions. Definitely worth a visit.

The monument is closed due to COVID but still a very interesting spot to visit. We checked out the visitor center to learn more about the area and the battle. Park staff was friendly and helpful. A must visit while on the island.

Beautiful monument
Jul 2020 • Couples
This is a beautiful monument dedicated to the friendship between the US and Canada and honoring those who fought and died in the battles for our country. It was closed due to the virus but we walked around and grounds and the film in the museum was interesting to watch.
