Discover a Bird’s Eye View of Lake Red Rock
The Cordova Observation Tower is in Cordova Park which is an 1,100-acre area situated on bluffs overlooking Lake Red Rock. The name Cordova is derived from the small town that occupied this location from 1887-1962. For a bird’s eye view of the surrounding area, climb the 169 steps to the top of the park’s 106’ observation tower, the tower charges $.50/person and requires quarters. On a clear day, landmarks 35 miles away may be viewed with the naked eye. In addition to the tower, the park has seven modern cabins available for rent year-round, a hiking trail and a trailhead for the 17-mile paved Volksweg Trail.Learn More
