I wouldn't go out of my way to come here. The punch bowl is small and not that impressive (to me). The surrounding area (Ficklen Island) is pretty. We didn't do the trail, but just walked around some of the area.

Not sure what I viewed in person. In my opinion this is what a glacier left behind maybe 20,00 plus years ago. So how did an almost perfectly round bowl appear? Several Native American tribes occupied the Fredericksburg area. These tribes were known to dip...More

Umm, didn't know that kind of place. Walking, short hike to the river. Can be muddy. There are obstacles. Great place for photos. Hike to River NOT recommended for toddlers.

So, basically it's a divot in a rock. Maybe the first people used it for something, but I doubt it was punch anymore than that wedding gift in your attic, if you ever unwrap it, will ever be used for punch. Like Internet click bait,...More

This was a great place to visit after eating dinner. Great big river. There were people tubing the rapids. Great photo ops too. Just park on the street and walk any of the many trails that follow the river.

A stop on riverside, near one set of rapids. Great views of the river and rapids. A great spot to unwind and enjoy the river.

The Indian Punch Bowl is a great place to walk to - not too difficult and well worth making a nice picnic day when the weather is right. So, put on your sneakers or hiking boots and hit the trail!

You choose - was the punch bowl natural or man-made? Be careful of the dog poo! We expected more for the walkway leading down to the area. Neat access to the river.
