Offers excellent picnicking opportunities. Visitors can enjoy a leisurely outdoor meal and, at the same time, enjoy some of the finest views in the upper midwest from the overlooks and trail viewing platforms. A rustic stone open picnic shelter is located in the main picnic and overlook area as well as two open “gazebo” shelters. The stone shelter may be reserved for a fee through the park manager. A playground located near the stone shelter offers fun for younger visitors. The sidewalk and shelter in the picnic-overlook area are accessible to the mobility-impaired as are the shower buildings, several overlook structures and the “effigy bear mound.”
