Create an itinerary including Perrot State Park
Perrot State Park is a state park in Wisconsin's Driftless Area at the confluence of the Trempealeau and Mississippi rivers. The 1,270-acre (514 ha) park features views of steep limestone bluffs and the river valleys. It has observation platforms for watching wildlife, including the variety of birds which inhabit or migrate through the park. Hiking trails and camping are available. Mountain bike trails penetrate deep inside the park.

The park protects two State Natural Areas including Brady's Bluff Prairie and Trempealeau Mountain, a cone-shaped mountain surrounded by water. The Native Americans of the area traditionally considered the mountain sacred and used it as a landmark for meetings. Some earthwork mounds made by ancient Native American cultures are located in the park.

This facility protects the site of one of the earliest encampments by European explorers in the upper Mississippi. The park is named for Nicolas Perrot, a French explorer who was the first to write about the area.

  • Our first visit to this park in late October was overall a very nice one. Lots of colorful leaves and beautiful vistas. We camped in #38 and were happy about how relaxed and quiet the atmosphere...

  • Love this place. Hike the rail line out to Trempealeau Island but make sure a train isn't coming. Must hike to Brady's Bluff which provides a glorious panoramic view of the Mississippi River

  • Beautiful park! My campsite was well shaded, deep and private. Staff was super friendly and helpful and the bathroom and facilities were clean. The only issue I had was the 3 inches of rain the first night, but that wasn't the parks fault. Great place! Recommended!
  • A good day for a hike in the state park. Beautiful views at the top of the bluffs and of Mississippi River. Saw deer, variety of birds , including a large turkey that flew from the bluff gliding down to a lower level. Then had a picnic at the nature center area.
