Beautiful park full of history!

This park is one of the best maintained parks that we have traveled to. The campground sites are well spaced out, and the sites that back up to the river are full hookup. Several swings and benches line the bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. There is a playground in the middle of the loop, along with a very clean bath house and shelter area.

Just down the street from the campground, maybe 0.5 miles, is the main attraction for the state park. Scattered throughout the hills overlooking the river, there are picnic tables, covered areas, grills, a snack bar, mini-golf, and even a Civil War museum! All of this is well manicured with paved paths connecting it all. You can even take a self-guides walking tour through the trenches dug by soldiers in the Civil War, walking by several cannons and other relics left behind. This state park is rich in history, and you can tell they are proud of it!

The snack bar food was good on a hot summer day, but the prices are a little steep for what you get, and you have to pay to go through the museum. With that being said, I didn’t mind paying those prices if it means they will continue to maintain this beautiful state park!!
