Palisades State Park is named for the eroded limestone revealing unusual rock formations. Explore 15-miles of trails through wooded ravines to developed overlooks where you can gaze upon the Mississippi River and observe white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, ducks and geese. Or consider getting on the water boating and fishing for catfish and carp. Rock climbers will love the challenge of climbing Sentinel, a 145-foot limestone pinnacle. Camping is available until Oct 31 and the park is open in winter with cross-country skiing, sledding and ice-fishing.
