Charles A. Lindbergh State Park

How to Get to Charles A. Lindbergh State Park: The park entrance is located one mile southwest of Little Falls on Lindbergh Drive South.

Park Highlights:

  • The 436-acre Charles A. Lindbergh State Park is actually named for the famous aviator's father, who donated the funds to preserve the Lindbergh house and land. The house, where Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr., "Lucky Lindy," grew up remains much as it was when he lived there. The Lindbergh History Center is nearby.
  • A field on the west side of the park is remembered as a spot where young Lindbergh crashed one of his early planes while on a test flight.
  • The historic Work Projects Administration picnic shelter and stone water tower are prominent landmarks in the park.
