Minnesota State Parks E-book for Kindle: Minnesota State Parks: From Afton to Zippel Bay

Plan your state park visit with information at your finger-tips about campsites, cabins and group camps, recreational activities, natural attractions, what to see and do nearby, and which other Minnesota State Parks are in the same area.

Minnesota state parks are wonderful destinations in all four seasons of the year. You will learn the best places to bird-watch, see wildlife, and look for wild flowers. Some of the most stunning autumn scenery is found in Minnesota State Parks. Most parks are open all winter and offer groomed cross-country ski trails, snowmobile trails, winter hiking trails, and snowshoeing. Several state parks have exciting sledding hills and many have a warming house with a wood-burning stove or fireplace.

State parks are found in each of the seven unique regions of Minnesota:

  • The Arrowhead
  • The Iron Range
  • The Bogs
  • The Red River Valley
  • The Heartland
  • The Southern Plains
  • The Bluff Country.

Every region offers you a diverse Minnesota experience. 

Our family has lived in Minnesota all of our lives.  Our favorite vacation spots around the state are always Minnesota State Parks. 

When I was young we lived in Northwest Minnesota and spent lots of time every year in our oldest state park, Itasca. When I met the man who was to become my husband, I learned that his family owned land right next to Itasca State Park. As you can imagine, we still spend a lot of time in that area.

Camping vacations with our five children often took us to the beautiful state parks along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Temperance River State park was a favorite however we explored all of the others as well.

We also came to love remote Zippel Bay State Park that took us to the shores of Lake of the Woods.  This park is often overlooked and rarely as busy as many other state parks can be. 

We moved to the Twin Cities more than twenty-five years ago. Parks close to the cities are now often our destination. We love beautiful Afton State Park and historic Fort Snelling State Park. Day trips often take us to Interstate State Park on the Minnesota –Wisconsin border to enjoy a riverboat cruise or just to hike in the unique geologic pothole areas.
