A River Flows Through It

The park is divided in two by the Eau Claire River. The river flows through a rocky gorge to form cascades and waterfalls as it passes over and around weathered boulders, outcrops, and other formations.

Moving Waters

I used caution when traversing the rocks. They are pretty darn slick in spots. Even, when they are not wet. Maybe because they are so smooth. Normally rocks have a gritty texture.  These do not.

The water that flows between the rocks is moving pretty quickly. I took picture above using a slow shutter to show the movement of the water. That is what gives it the blurred effect.

Flowing Waters

The park also has areas designated for camping, swimming, hiking, and picnicking. Download the County Park Map.

Perfect Spot for a Picnic
Although the park shares a name with the city of Eau Claire, in Wisconsin. That city is over 100 miles away to the west.

Stream Flowing into River

There are all kinds of places to stop off and see flora, frogs and pools of water along the rocky banks.

Eau Claire River Dam

The dam is beautiful and located along one of the hiking trails that it a little further down from where most people venture in the park.

Water Under the Bridge

Hope you enjoyed the tour.  Fall colors will be upon us soon.  Dells of the Eau Claire County Park might be the perfect place for you to pack a picnic and head out to hike a few trails.
