Eagle Tower in Peninsula State Park has reopened — better than ever.
Originally built in 1932, and dismantled in 2016, Eagle Tower in Peninsula State Park was not accessible to anyone with mobility issues. Today, visitors can still climb the 95 steps to the observation level. Or they can stroll through the tree-tops on the 850 foot boardwalk
– both end at the observation platform for a panoramic view of the coast including the village of Ephraim, Eagle Harbor, and on a clear day the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
This is Wisconsin’s first accessible observation tower but hopefully not the last. The Friends of Peninsula State Park raised $750,000 towards the $3.5 million cost of the new tower and canopy walk. We thank them for helping to create something we can all enjoy.
Eagle Tower is free with a park admission pass, and can be reached either from the nearby parking lot or numerous biking and hiking trails.
