Tower at Rock Eagle — Visitors of the Rock Eagle Effigy Mound can climb the tower for a great view of the mound. The tower was built in the 1930s. The stairs may be strenuous for some visitors, so there is a paved walkway around the mound with interpretive panels explaining the significance of the site.
