  • Very well maintained, focus almost totally on tree varieties and a joy to wander. Nice parking, toilet available. Great experience.
  • It doesn't get any more beautiful than Bickelhaupt Arboretum. It is a wonderful place to visit at any season. Every season will just as beautiful as the last. The class selection and activities are for all the ages. I love all the educational information that is available for the public. So, you will not want to miss this amazing place on your next visit to Clinton. If I could give it 100 stars, I would. I am very proud to live in a city that has such a wonderful place to hold weddings, class trips, family and senior pictures, and tons of different programs for adults, children and family alike.
  • Well kept, visible tags on most plants. Nice relaxing day
  • A great place to bring children to see a wide variety of plants. My daughter loves running around taking in the brightly colored flowers and sitting under the trees. Educational plaques are unobtrusive to the view but informative. On site facilities are adequate. Overall, this is a great free experience for those interested in this type of attraction.
  • I had my wedding there and it was so beautiful. The different colored trees, shrubs and flowers were more beautiful than any church could be. It was a little overcast that day but it was still very lovely. I loved the arboretum and so did my guests!
