A quick stop off of I-90, Mill Bluff offers a secluded experience with great views and a short, pleasant hike.

Mill Bluff State Park is located south of I-90 in Tomah. The park is known for it's featured bluffs that can be seen very prominently in the flat landscapes in the area. The park offers campsites, a small swimming hole, and some hiking trails along the bluffs. 

The trail along the main bluffs follows the base of the hills, and stretches for over a mile. The scenery is great, and separated from the main camping area, allowing for a tranquil walk in the woods. At the end of the loop, there is a staircase up towards to the top of the bluff, but is only a short hike to the top. At the top of the bluff, there are observation decks on both the north and south points of the bluff.

Mill Bluff State Park is open throughout the year, but the park office and campground are open from May to September.
