Eagle Point Park has great views of the Mississippi River and valley and many areas to use for private parties and picnics. Would be a great place to just go for a walk. Entrance fee for vehicles at the gate.

This was a beautiful park, and even though it was raining on the day of our visit, I'm glad we at least drove though! I highly recommend a visit if you're in Dubuque!

This Park is the one we choose for all family events, the Frank Lloyd Wright architecture is absolutely fantastic and the beautiful scenery and trees and the roads and view of the Mississippi River is absolutely beautiful.

Cost 1.00 per vehicle. Beautiful park. We especially came to see the view of Mississippi River. Had a interesting view of Lock & Dam #11. Watch barges and tugs go through for about 1/2 hour. Flowers and landscaping were lovely. Nice clean restroom.

Thank B M
