This State Park is bordered by the St. Croix River on the east, is bisected by the Kettle River and has a really nice beach on Lake Clayton. Miles of hiking and horse trails. Campsites and cabins available for reservation. Very scenic.

Took a beautiful six mile hike and seen all kinds of mushrooms. Camp sites are spacious, beautiful brick main buildings. Bathrooms and showers very clean and water pressure was good. Gigantic park!

I felt compelled to give the park a higher review after seeing so many 1 star ratings of the park because there were bugs. I mean, come on, you're in the woods, of course there will be mosquitoes and ticks! This is definitely NOT a...More

I took the family to this park for the 4th of July weekend fully expecting to encounter some traffic at the park, being the National holiday. What I didn't realize was how big the park is! With over 100 campgrounds, it can get somewhat congested...More
