  • A wonderful park and a must visit. The camp sites are a little close together in some spots but it's so quiet you'd never notice! Grounds are immaculate and bathhouse was G.I. clean. The hiking path to the falls is a boardwalk in one direction and a natural trail from the other. Something for everyone. The views are breath taking. If you do visit, do yourself a favor and visit the small town of Clayton a few miles away. We found it so very well kept and clearly a lot of pride there.
  • Always great with its spectacular overlooks of the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers. The trail to Bridal Veil Falls becomes a boardwalk, which is nice, but can be slippery if it's wet or really humid out. The park even has mounds and at least one effigy mound, the later a pretty easy walk not far from the park's shelter area. Beware, this park is super, super busy during fall leaf colors. Might want to visit mid-week then if possible.
