Peninsula State Park Eagle Tower

An in-depth inspection of Eagle Tower was conducted in the spring of 2015 because of its age. The inspection included core sampling to determine the general internal condition of the structural components and overall load-bearing capacity of the structure. The tower inspection report indicated the structure was in poor condition and should be razed. On May 20, 2015 the tower was closed for public use.

Future tower concept

A stakeholder group, made up of Friends members, community members, legislators, U.S. Forest Products Lab staff and DNR staff, worked with a consultant to develop three concept options that best meet the goals for a new tower at Peninsula State Park. The DNR received more than 650 comments on the design concepts. A tower with an accessible ramp through the tree canopy connecting to the top viewing deck received the greatest support and was selected as the concept for the new Eagle Tower.

The Friends of Peninsula State Park [exit DNR] and community members are raising funds for the tower's construction. The new tower will comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, current construction codes, and take into consideration new construction technologies. For more information, see the Friends website.

Tower deconstruction

Eagle Tower was taken down on Sept. 19, 2016.
