Eagle’s Bluff Park and Overlook

Eagle's Bluff Park and Overlook

Eagle's Bluff Park is our largest facility, consisting of 128 acres.  Originally known as "The Overlook," this facility was created during the construction of the Cannelton Locks and Dam as a means of observing the construction process.  The road through the park also served as the detour for State Road 66 during the construction of the Dam.

Acquired from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in 2000, this facility was renovated and reopened to the public in 2008.  Situated on a bluff 200 feet above the Ohio River in Cannelton, this facility boasts the following amenities:

  • Visitor's Center with restrooms and regional recreation information
  • Observation Deck overlooking the Ohio River and Cannelton Locks and Dam
  • 3 Walking Trails
  • 2 Shelter Houses equipped with picnic tables and charcoal grill
