John A. Latsch State Park
Adobe Flash Player
John A. Latsch, a successful Winona businessman of the Izaak Walton League, loved to fish in the waters of the Mississippi River below the bluffs. Today, a half-mile hike up the deep ravine for a view is well worth the effort.
From this vantage point, visitors relish a grand long view of the Mississippi River Valley, the green lush forest in the summer, and the colors in the fall.
