“A view worth seeing”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Peninsula State Park at Fish Creek, Wisconsin is in itself worth going to for many purposes. Aside from the biking, hiking, camping and beach going you should take a moment to climb Eagle Tower. We were there the second week of October in 2013 and the view of the fall colors at their peak was fabulous. I would definitely do this again hopefully on a perfectly clear day when one could probably see for more than 20 miles from this sturdy structure.

“Great Vistas”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Even though we were both recovering from foot surgery, we managed to climb to the top of the tower and the view was well worth it.

“Breathtaking, amazing views!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

A bit of a hike up the stairs, but rewarding with the view of the smaller islands, beautiful lay of the land and the Lake Michigan!

“Nice view”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We did the hike before climbing this tower. It was a windy day so it made the climb all the better. I was surprised at the number of people that were too frightened to get to the top. It was well worth it! A definite must if you go into the park!

Reviewed September 15, 2013

scared me - quite frankly. great views but seriously scared me. now i must say i am afraid of heights so may not have been the best choice to go up but that said it looks old and like it could fall apart....
