Beautiful place. Very nice displays of the lumbering his. Walked down 200 feet to the bottom worth the 262 steps back up! The store was very nice, cute things. Reasonable prices. The DNR employees very knowledgeable.

Would recommend if looking for somewhere to go with history behind it. It has a little room off the back of the cabin dedicated to the fire of 1911. Has a nice picnic area and beautiful views of the lake.

You can see Bald Eagles in the wild. A place to get away from it all. Hiking trails, fishing, boating, picnicking, take your camera.

As long as it's on a leash and not attacking the other visitors, you should be good. And don't forget to clean up after it! :-)
