The Park is very clean. Visitor center was nice and it was an easy walk to see the falls. It's nice that there is no admission to see the falls and nature center.

Great trails and beautiful waterfalls. Our teenagers had a great time! We hiked up to the 5th Falls and it was worth it! We went up the trail on one side and crossed over and took the trail down the other side!

Minnesota has so many beautiful state parks, but this is one not to be missed. Easy access to the falls. Great visitor center. One of our favorites.
