Roche-A-Cri State Park, established in 1948, includes a 605-acre park area. Roche-A-Cri comes from French words meaning "crevice in the rock." The park has a 300-foot-high rock outcropping with Native American petroglyphs and pictographs. The park has 41 rustic campsites within a forest of large oaks and pines. Carter Creek in the park offers fishing opportunities. The stairway to the top of the bluff has been closed due to deteriorating lumber. Later in 2010 the DNR will seek bids for replacing the stairs, and $354,600 has been approved to complete the work. Park staff estimates it will be completed in August 2011.
I thought the trail was great. It is well maintained with restrooms and water along the trail. It is a 3.5 mile trail if you take the acorn trail. There are sections where you feel like you are in the deep woods. I would definitely recommend this for families with small kids.
