What people are saying about Whirlpool State Park

Lenny was the best tour guide! He knew how to keep the group laughing at all times! My cheeks hurt at the end of the tour! He shared so many stories and history that we wouldn’t have gotten if we explored the falls alone! The falls were nothing short of amazing! Thanks for such a great time! We are taking home many memories!

Team Paul couldn't have been better. The tour leader's name is Paul of course. We were a small group of only 13 people so Paul gave each party his best service. He was informative during the tour and made sure everyone was having a wonderful time.
