Romantic Winter Getaways Outdoors

If enjoying our outdoors in winter appeals to you, and you are somewhat adventurous, the best romantic vacation for you might be in one of our state parks.

Winter camping can be very romantic; spend time together enjoying activities from this list of winter sports.

Though the park amenities are a bit more limited in winter, almost all of them are open. You can camp in a tent or RV or you can stay in a heated camper cabin.

Most state parks have groomed cross-country ski trails and/or snowmobile trails. Snowshoeing is permitted throughout most of the parks.

Some also have ice skating rinks, sledding hills and warming houses with fireplaces.

You can take a dog sled tour at a number of places in Minnesota.
