Perrot State Park, Trempealeau

#22 of 57 in Nature in Wisconsin
Perrot State Park is a state park in Wisconsin's Driftless Area at the confluence of the Trempealeau and Mississippi rivers. The 1270acre park features spectacular views of steep limestone bluffs and the river valleys. It offers observation platforms for watching wildlife, especially the great 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.Images

  • Awesome park. Best ever views of the Mississippi River. Great bluffs for hiking. We'll kept facilities.
  • We camped there last July with the kids (3 and 1 years old). The park has a lot to offer. The tent campsite was very clean and quiet. We rented a canoe and went to the river and it was fabulous. It is one of our favorite state parks to camp and recommend it for sure.
  • Good hiking trails for people with or without limitations. Great views of the area from the bluffs. Pretty good eats in the area. A couple wineries in the area as well. Good place to spend a nice day.
  • Great hiking nice camp sites. Could use more trash cans only ones were located at the entrance to camp grounds. My complaint is I hike with my dog and times you carry poop bags the entire hike.
  • Beautiful park. Great hiking trails. Spacious campsites.
