“Enjoy a walk”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Wonderful scenic views in the Loess Hills. Knowledgeable staff that offer lots of programming for schools and preschools. A gem! Enjoy a walk on the boardwalk made for accessibility. Find a couple geocaches. Take the stairs to the top of the tower.

“Great views”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

A great place to watch birds and other wildlife. I love the hike-in camp sites. It's great to be up in the hills, with a view of the Omaha metro, sitting by a campfire. The staff do a great job of maintaining this place. I saw a mountain lion here while hiking in September of 2007.

“Primitive camping at Hitchcock”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Lovely campsites in a dell away from the noise of the RVs. Seriously, one RV had a plasma TV set up outside. Anyway, the primitive areas are lovely. The nature/visitor's center has an astonishing view, great to watch the sunset.

“Excellent nature outing + spectacular views of the loess hills”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Well marked trails. Photogenic views. Maps indicate easy, medium, and difficult trails and give mileage. Admission is $2 per car and a bargain. Best months May and October. Watch out on the days with heat over 95F -- bring plenty of water on those days

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

the center is clean and staff are friendly. The hawk tower is a climb but worth the view. Some of the trails are a little daunting but nothing too bad. Went on the 5k run and that is pretty tough - the typically hiker wouldn't likely go that far into the park though.
