Located off County Road Y in the Town of Plover, this is one of the special jewels in the Marathon County park system. The Dells of the Eau Claire Park surrounds fantastic geological features created by the Eau Claire River. Ancient volcanic rock palisades and potholes carved in the rock by the falling water create a unique place at the dells and gorge. The river bisects this 190-acre park.

A dam upstream from the falls creates an impoundment, which provides for a swimming beach. With 27 campsites and the adjacent Ice Age Trail, this park offers visitors a number of nature trails right on the banks of the Eau Claire River along with swimming beach, spectacular waterfalls and rapids. The beautiful rock formations are a magnet for summertime nature enthusiasts. Who can resist climbing among the water-worn rocks or cooling off in one of the many swimming holes?
