This place is gorgeous. I would take a camera and take shots of your kids for Christmas cards. We've been there when it's hot or cold and it's beautiful every time. Wear comfy shoes and hit every trail. Amazing! You must check it out!

This place is great. It has over 970 acres of land to use. Over 75 campsites and even a concession stand selling postcards to food. This is the FIRST Pikes' Peak, by the way. The second is in another state. A plaque on the scenic overlook tells all. This overlook shows where the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers converge. In the fall the colors are spectacular!
Plenty of hiking here. Bald eagles can be seen swooping nearby and deer and wild turkey come right out of the woods. There is even an effigy mound here. There is an awesome boardwalk that one can walk to a crows nest and view the river and Prairie du Chein, WI.
Bridal Falls and other natural attractions within the park can't be beat regardless of season.
Well worth the drive from nearby McGregor, IA.

Amazing view of the trees during the fall season and beautiful hiking trails. Great place to bring a camera with you.

We always stop in and take a look. Right off the main road. Great overlook on the river. Great for a picnic and rest stop if you need. Hummingbird feeders are hanging in the trees by the visitor center and you can get within 10 feet of them. The overlook is great! You can see for miles.

I wish we had more time, this park was great! It has an awesome view of the Mississippi river and the Wisconsin river. There are trails you could hike. Great place to stop and see.
