What beautiful and easy hike. Great view of the rocks. The hike has a nice balance of vantage points to enjoy scenery.

Beautiful hike. Cliff Jumping and swimming spots. Very interesting rock formations and waterfalls. Excellent picnic pavilion and clean restrooms available. Many mosquitoes right now (end of June 2019)

Love this trail. There's plenty to see between the waterfalls and rock formations, and the variety of the river flow--at times it's volatile and others it's glass-like and gentle.Grills, structures with picnic tables, and clean toilets too. A must do and see.

I love this loop. I visit it probably a half dozen times a year. Great views, easy hiking, places to camp, accessible restrooms. Weekends are quite busy by the falls.

Absolutely beautiful. Peaceful walk on the south river trail through trees with the river to your left. Great picnicking near the swimming beach. And not too crowded. Well maintained. We didn't bring our kids on this vacation, but we will come back with them. I would not hike with a stroller, but the trails are easy enough that you could wear them in a backpack.

Pretty descent campgrounds with a beach at the bend of the Eau Claire River. The old highway separates the campgrounds from the actual park so be cautious, people are usually speeding through. The Wisconsin Glaciation marked the end of the last ice age, roughly 10,000 years ago, at the Dells of the Eau Claire witness, first hand, the scars of those ancient glaciers through the rushing falls and glacial pot holes of these dells. Along the river and throughout its wooded banks you'll find surmountable evidence of this areas geological history. As a teenager my sister, friends, and I used to leap from the tall shoulder of the highest rock cliff of the main falls, plunging into the rushing falls below- VERY STUPID in retrospect but great memories none-the-less. The water is always icy and clear and the rocks great for drying off after a quick swim. Great for all skill levels. Don't forget to bring a camera!
