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

Charles A. Lindbergh's Natural Attractions: The Mississippi River flows past the park, and Pike Creek provides recreation as well. The campground is set among towering red pines. Other trees here include oak, aspen, and conifers. A small area of prairie can be seen in the northwest part of the park. Prehistoric burial mounds and artifacts have been discovered here.

Expect to see some wildflowers and songbirds. Eagles are frequently spotted near the river.

Things to Do in Charles A. Lindbergh State Park: Rent a canoe in summer and paddle the creek. Fish in the Mississippi River; a boat ramp is available. Hike the trails that wind for seven miles through the park. Come in winter to cross-country ski or snowshoe, and then warm up in the warming house.

The historic log cabin-style building that houses the park's picnic shelter is an ideal place for a large gathering. The shelter will accommodate approximately 60 people. It has electric lights, outlets, and a fireplace, among other amenities. Call the park to reserve the shelter.
