“Clark's Tower”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This limestone tower is in the beautiful Winterset City Park!! Next to the park is a great campground. You can hike or drive to the tower, climb up to the top and see a beautiful sight!! Also can relax and just enjoy our town.

“Check out the View!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

The drive to Clark Tower is nice. I wouldn't try it in anything larger than a Dodge Ram 3500 long bed. We made is pretty easy, but there are some tight turns. The woods a nice to look at as you drive up, and around the twisty dirt road.

Clark Tower is pleasant to look at with all the stones that were used in its construction. I enjoyed the view from the top of the tower which over looks the area.

If your nearby at the Winterset City Park, or the RV Campgrounds, why not enjoy Clark Tower. Many people will walk up to it. Bikes are welcome.

“What a view”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This historic tower is a must see. It was built so that people could enjoy the view (especially to the south). It was interesting to see how it was built and to see the workmanship that was put into the tower.

“Stone Turret”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The ride to the Clark Tower was beautiful. The road was winding, but there was a beautiful rock bridge that was great for taking pictures. Lush green, and the small hedge maze was also in the park. Part of the tower view is blocked by large trees, but the view was still nice. Some may be unable to climb the metal ladder to the top which is about three stories high.

“So So on the view.”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Nothing special. You get a pretty nice view but they have let the trees grow up above the tower and most of the view is blocked. It is free.
