Well worth to trip to northern Minnesota to see this small state park. There is an old mill and home, complete with furnishings. There were no historical re-enactors or guides here during midweek in late September but it would be really interesting to hear the interpreter stories. The stonework all built by the CCC is intact and glorious. The water tower and all the bridges are amazing.
We were here mid-week in late September. Water was turned off. We were the only campers in the park. So very quiet! We had reserved in advance (no cell signal here), and chose site 25 purely by reviewing the map. If we were to return, we would pick site 15 or 17. Much larger sites, and more private.
We were hoping we could see the river from our campsite, but there are trees and brush between the campsites and the river. We walked to the far side of the bridge and sat on the bench overlooking the river for our morning coffee.
Sites inside the loop have no privacy at all but could be fun for a group that is camping together.
Nice hiking trails. And it looks like there is a swimming pond that could be fun in the summer. (also CCC built)
20AcresNoSheep would stay here again
