Climbing either of the two towers puts you above the treetops at the highest points of this park (and you drive up a long uphill way to get there). The view lets you see much of the Blue Mounds area. Each tower has a list...More

Camped, in a tent, 4 nights, beautiful park, enough space between campsites for privacy, friendly staff!! Really enjoyed the views, it rained, but we found plenty to do in Mount Horeb or Madison!
