Bellevue State Park is a Iowa state park in Jackson County, Iowa in the United States. It is along the banks of the Mississippi River just south of Bellevue.

The park lies in two separate tracts. The Nelson Unit is at the immediate south edge of Bellevue on U.S. 52 (The Great River Road), atop a 300 foot limestone bluff. The Dyas Unit is two miles further south on U.S. 52.

Bellevue State Park offers high bluffs with scenic views of the Mississippi River amidst 770 acres (3.1 km) of timbered walking trails, a unique butterfly sanctuary as well as an enclosed nature center.

While a state park pass is a great deal in most states, that is not the case in Iowa. This is because all state parks have no entrance fees in Iowa and therefore there is no need for an Iowa annual state park pass.
