Blue Mound State Park reviews
We did some hiking through the woods. The kids enjoyed playing on the playground. The towers were closed, but there were still some openings in the trees that provided beautiful views for miles. more »
Not at all far off the Interstate. Give a good idea what Laura Ingalls Wilder would have seen around her house on the prairie. Cool piece of FL Wright inspired architecture on the property. Good for..... more »
Great state park, we had a blast. The campsites are awesome and pretty large in size. The bathrooms are nice and even on a busy weekend no one was too loud or anything. We really enjoyed our stay. We camped with two other families and the sites worked out GREAT for that!
Blue Mounds State Park was a great surprise after not visiting for many years. Took a number of grandchildren in elementary school and had a wonderful, varied time. The ranger gave us a scavenger hunt to do on our hike and the kids were highly entertained on the hike up the hill to the East Tower. They enjoyed climbing the tower, playing at the newly constructed playground, and then swimming at the pool. The pool itself is small, but wasn't crowded on the day that we were there. It was immaculate, though there's no lifeguard and children need to be supervised by parents and caregivers. The children also get a prize for completing the scavenger hunt, so they were very happy upon leaving, while also having spent time paying attention to to the natural world.
