Arrow Rock State Historic Site Reviews
Wonderful Visitor Center with good display exhibits and good 20-minute movie. Free and worth the visit. Start exploring the city from here. more »
In fact this town has 56 people. But it’s heart us huge. The 8 stores were packed with delightful wares. The visual beauty means it is worth a visit. more »
Was a very nice campground...big areas between sites. Host couple were awesome and friendly. Would have earned 5 stars if sites were level and less sloped. Only complaint! Arrow Rock town was a trail walk away..Pizza/Ice Cream Parlor for kids..wine/beer for adults Really cool old town with rich history and small Theatre still showing plays by actors. Very interesting area!
Great place to go for historic buildings and stories but not if you're wheelchair or scooter bound. None of the buildings including the newer museum is disabled accessible. Pretty disappointing when I wanted to share the town with my grandchildren but couldn't get in anywhere.
