Perrot State Park
Perrot State Park covers 1,270 acres along the Mississippi River just west of Trempealeau. It is a mixture of wooded hills, bluffs, ravines and lagoons. The park is an excellent place to visit during spring and fall bird migrations offering good looks at migrating waterfowl, songbirds and Bald Eagles. The park encompasses two state natural areas: Brady’s Bluff Prairie is a 65-acre dry prairie found on the southwest facing slope of a steep bluff that rises nearly 460 feet above the river; and Trempealeau Mountain State Natural Area, a wooded rock formation that rises 425 feet from the river. It is accessible by boat or canoe.
Directions: From Trempealeau, go south on Main Street to South Park Road, then west to the park entrance.
