Find Your Perfect State Park


Minnesota State Park

Minnesota has more than 60 state parks within its borders, meaning there are a lot of ‘fish in the sea.’ So how do you find the one that’s right for you?

The Minnesota DNR has created a new online tool called ParkFinder to help you find your perfect match. It helps you narrow down the list of possibilities based on several criteria: nature programs, camping, lodging, trails, recreation facilities, available rentals and access to additional features.

And the good news is, there’s no long term commitment. If you change your mind, you can go back, enter new criteria and start all over again. With more than 60 parks and three months still left in summer, why not make a date with all of them.
