I love this place. It was an unseasonably warm February day and sunny. I had a guest in from out of town and was hoping we could hike and climb the rock formations to see the... read more

I just wanted to make it clear to this park ranger that my family and I fully intend on coming back to this campground but that if we are harassed again we will be going to great lengths to report you to your higher ups. I certainly understand a park ranger’s job is to ensure everyone has stickers and is... More

I love this place. It was an unseasonably warm February day and sunny. I had a guest in from out of town and was hoping we could hike and climb the rock formations to see the potholes. Unfortunately, the ice and snow prevented access to some areas. Still there were a lot of climbers and families enjoying the park. We... More

Not open year-round, but it is a great place to go bouldering and feel like you get a change from the prairies of Minnesota.

I went there with my friend for rock climbing in October. The weather was perfect and it was beautiful to see Mississippi river with colored trees. Plus,it's a great place for outdoor activities.

Beautiful vistas, great hiking trails, and a must-visit for rock climbing or geology enthusiasts. A terrific place for a fall color walk. Also terrific for canoeing or kayaking. Interstate State Park has unique geological features in its glacial potholes, formed by moving water and debris. These holes, formed in the rock surrounding the river, range from a few inches to...

The trails here are amazing. They also give way for you to explore on your own off trail as long as you are careful of slippery rocks. 100% recommend visiting though the PARKING IS NOT FREE. Saw many people get tickets as the lot does not say pay to park.... it's $5/day for the state park.

This is a lovely and small park. Couple nice hikes and the glacial pot holes are worth seeing. Know that if you want a quiet remote park this isn't a fit, its busy and a river boat will go by down the St Croix a few times a day. But it's convenient for a quick weekend get away from the... More

This park is well kept, the spaces are average in size. There is little coverage between sites but it is pretty, there are some pretty trails. The fire pits are well kept, along with the picnic tables at each site. The bathrooms are also well kept, I wasn't a fan of the showers which were push button with the shower... More

Wonderful for hiking and for easy bouldering. Great family activity and the loops for the trails are manageable for every level of fitness. Just beware of the mosquitoes; they were fierce.

Love, love, love this park! Wish I lived closer! If you have a fear of heights or falling, maybe this park isn't for you. But if you have kids that like to climb then make your way here! We found frogs in the pot holes, lots of mushrooms, and even a skink today too! The bouldering was awesome. Even my... More
