Pretty cool! It was very peaceful and relaxing. We took a sack lunch the first evening and explored the park and then went back the next evening with snacks and spent two hours watching two barges pass through Lock and Dam 11. Would highly recommend the park for visiting.
I was visiting from Wisconsin to visit my cousins and was so impressed with this place. So unique and beautiful with something for all ages. The lookouts were gorgeous and breathtaking. I took my senior pictures here too because it was so incredible. I hope to come back soon!
