What is happening at Perrot?
All buildings are closed to the public except some restrooms: Vaults at East Brady’s and Nature Center and the Boat landing portable.
All events and programs are cancelled including WorkPlay Earth Day volunteer day.
All campgrounds are closed and any reservations for April will be refunded.
Enjoy your visit.
We have 15 miles of hiking trails so consider hiking a new trail. Explore the Black Walnut Nature Trail. Walk along the Riverview trail and Trempealeau Bay below the nature center and enjoy the migrating birds. Head up to Perrot Ridge and keep an eye out for the pasque flowers as they emerge to soak up the spring sunshine. Take a walk in the campground and pick out your favorite sites for later in the summer. Or just sit on a picnic table, breath in the fresh air, watch the squirrels, listen to the songbirds, and just relax.
The safety of our visitors and staff are top priorities.
Please be considerate. Practice social distancing.
Enjoy your time in the park!
