Love to take the walk up to Chief War Eagle grave. So much history. Overlooks the South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa states. The sight also affords a view of the Big Sioux River merging into the Missouri River.

Nice drive up to the monument area and then a short hike up to the monument. Good view of the area from the top.

He is buried on the top of a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. War Eagle was a believer in peace and working together. You can see three states from the bluffs.

This was a very interesting piece of local history. A quiet peaceful place that doesn't take long to visit not much of a hike but a very nice wide paved sidewalk. The only slightly disappointing part is the 10-foot fall tall chain link fence put...More

The Chief War Eagle Monument is a little underwhelming. It's easy to see from I-29, but difficult to find the entrance. Riverside Blvd from the west side or 4th street from the east side are the easiest way to find it. Both are connected by...More

It's a nice monument to two early leaders of Sioux Falls. It takes a bit of a hike. There isn't a whole lot to see or do around it. If there had been more time I would have been interested in walking a bit more...More

Had to go up the hill. Didn't have signs, had to keep driving through the woods to get to the top. Some good information about the chief, and his daughters marrying a white man that he was friends with.

Great place to view the scenery, can see 3 states from the bluffs. Below the bluff the Big Sioux River joins up with the Missouri river.
