My brother proposed to his girlfriend on a rock formation called St. Peter's Dome which is in Northern WI, just south of Ashland, near Mellen. This is a very picturesque rock formation that you have to hike to and when you get to the top (St. Peter's Dome) you can see miles and miles of the Chequameqon forest and Lake Superior. Very very beautiful. The walk to the top is not for the faint hearted, but my brother assured me, very worth it. There are directions on google if you are interested.

Ellison Bluff County park in Door County, just south of Ellison Bay. Afterwards you can take her to a fish boil at the Viking in Ellison Bay, then down to Sister Bay for cocktails at Fred and Fuzzy's.

Don't get no better than that on the romance scale!

Actually, I would talk to Dan Peterson, who owns the Viking, and I would have him work the ring/proposal into the fish boil spiel he does. He's a ham, good guy, could make it fun.

I do that too salingfan when reading and posting quickly sometimes I miss some key info.

Devil's Lake State Park:

http://www.devilslakewisconsin.com/camping/

…state.wi.us/org/… you'd have up high (bluffs) and river (not lake) overlooks (less crowded perhaps than Devil's Lake).

Timm's Hill the highest point in Wisconsin is another possibility as well as Rib Mtn. in Wausau

http://www.timmshilltrail.com/index.htm

…state.wi.us/org/land/parks/specific/ribmt/

Some will be more of a water view than others but at least some offer the combo of height and water whereas others may be more just the height and view vs. height and spectacular water views. It depends which is more impt. to you or if both would be the preference.

Another river town view I hear much about is in Alma:

There's lots to choose from I don't think you could go wrong with any site you choose. Best wishes.
