“Spectacular View”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Perfect for a view of the sunset before heading out to dinner. There is a good sturdy set of stairs that get you down closer to the water, but not all the way to the water's edge. There are some benches halfway down that offer a great view.

“An Afternoon Hike”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

The park has a nice view of Green Bay. The trail is clear with crushed stone, a nice backwoods hike.

“Good ten minute stop”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

Great place to stop for a few minutes and take in the views from the bluffs. It's a few miles off the main road, on a gravel road, but worth the drive.

“Gorgeous Views”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Beautiful views from several spots overlooking Green Bay. Adequate parking, restrooms. Easier access to overlook with graduated steps and landings. Nice for anyone, like me, with walking and arthritis issues. Benches in several spots also. Trails for the more adventurous.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Standing on the bluff overlooking the bay is worth many good photos! Not far off the highway and well worth the visit.
