The Year of the Trail
There is no question about it -- the best way to see one of
Wisconsin's state parks or forests is on foot.
Nelson Dewey State Park has several trails totaling about 3 miles
in length. The Prairie Trail passes through a native
prairie with nice views of the Mississippi River. The Woodbine
Nature Trail is a self-guided nature trail passing through
woods, near prairie and offers more views of the Mississippi River valley.
The Mound Point Trail has fine views of the Mississippi
River, passes near Indian Mounds, and has benches along the way so visitors
can observe wildlife and birds flying on the Mississippi Flyway.
The park's newspaper includes more information on these trails and the
other trails at Nelson Dewey State Park.
Nelson Dewey has fabulous overlook campsites, group campsites & quiet,
wooded campsites. Showers and picnic areas are easily accessible.
