To me, this place was very meaningful, as I had ancestors who actually camped in this location on their handcart trek west. For that, I'd give it the highest rating. For the average person who isn't interested in Mormon Pioneers, it may just be average. We found this place quite on accident while looking for the nearest Dairy Queen in Iowa City. The walk is peaceful and because of the personal connection, I felt like I was walking on sacred ground. There are signs along the path to educate visitors, and even though the bugs were plentiful, they added to the authenticity of the pioneer experience. If I had brought my young children, they wouldn't have appreciated it unless we'd also brought a picnic, but as it was, I loved the short walk down to the pioneer burial ground area.
