A beautiful riverside park. It's definitely on the natural and rustic side, but there are trails and parking areas, and lots of grassy areas too and beautiful views of the Mississippi River.

Love our State Parks, Perrot is one of my favorites. Great hiking. Great Views. Great wildlife. Its' location over looking the Mighty Mississippi is Beautiful and then add looking down at the Locks as a barge is going through or watching the trains below...breath taking.

This park was great for hiking. We had to buy a day use permit but it was worth it. We hiked the Riverview Trail, took the Brady Trail West to Brady's Bluff then back down on Brady Trail East for about a 3.5 mile hike. The ascent to the bluff was steep with a seemingly endless wooden staircase so it's... More

Enjoyed our fall visit to Perrot State Park. A challenging, but fun hike up to Brady's Bluff...the views were well worth the trek. The trail we took was pretty steep with lots of rock steps, stairs and some rugged trail. A well-maintained state park.

The campground has many spacious campsites but the ones along trempeleau bay (i.e. #43) are particularly nice. Great views. Good distance from neighbors. And somehow we lucked out and found fewer mosquitoes that in our garden back home this summer. We were able to eat outside at dusk without problem. We did hear the trains in the distance but far...

Nice park with great hikes and great views. I can imaging that it is even more beautiful when the leaves change color.

This wonderful state park is along the Mississippi upstream from Trempealeau. The campground is nestled in the wooded land between the sandstone bluff and river. Biking, canoeing, hiking and kayaking are a few of the draws to this little gem.

This park is really great with beautiful views of the river. The hiking trails are varied and you can do a short or a longer hike depending on what you are up for. We opted for the Brady's Bluff trail which provided incredible views of the river. This was a family trip for us and we stayed at a cart-in... More

A nice place for camping. The wildflowers are incredible especially in the spring and along the bluffs. There were some new interesting exhibits about recent archeology explorations in the nature center.
