  • Enjoyed the walk to the to of tower. Beautiful little park. Not of sure if trail was open or closed to tower. Gate locked but was a walk way around it. Interesting stone work and construction. 
  • Beautiful state park with trails for hiking, biking, and riding horses, topped by the magnificent old stone tower on the "knob" that overlooks the serene countryside. I'd love to play my bagpipes there some day!
  • With the second highest point in Iowa, this park is definitely a must see. At the top of the tower, you can see for over 20 miles. The trails offer a diverse hiking experience, in addition to bridle trails. A variety of wildlife can be seen both on the trails and in the lakes.
  • One of the hidden treasures in Iowa. A wonderful spot to find ones happy place.
  • The knob is an beautiful well kept park with camping hiking fishing extra. Check it out
