This would be a great place for a large family reunion the campsites are very level however it didn't look like they had electric hookups. I took my dog for a walk here and some of the trails were blocked by downed trees as they had a storm approximately a month before we got there. Make sure to take the... More

We stopped here on our quest to complete all state park Hiking Club Trails. This one is a short hike under 2 miles and flat. The trail was well maintained. The trail circles the park along the Mississippi River. If you had a canoe there is a nice place to launch it for a little paddling, we did not. There... More

Lots of bugs but few people at this desolate, primitive campground. Not too many shade sites. Water is on-site. Bathrooms. Little else. There is a decent boat landing. Lots of trails for skiing in the winter and birding. No host or office is manned on site. Very pretty pines.

The park features the confluence of the Mississppi and Vermilion Rivers. At this part on the Mississippi it isn't very big... More

We needed a place to park late at night and sleep to take a break from the driving for our trip. It was easy to find this state park in the middle of the night. Left right away in the morning. Very small park. No showers.

Very nice little park, right on the Mississippi River. We were only one of four groups in the whole park. It has a nice boat landing. The camp sites were large enough to fit a small motor home. Nice hiking trails.

I pulled up to this park on August 16, 2012 and was dissapointed upon arrival. I do not know how the parks are maintained or the number of staff assigned but there is a breakdown. The Ranger Station was not open, but the outside lacked basic upkeep along with the toilets throughout the park were dirty, old dirty. The camping... More
