  • I came here on a day off from working in the area. It was only about a 20 to 30 minute drive from East Grand Forks, MN. The entry fee was $5, so I thought why not? The only down side was the restrooms...  more »

  • Scenic little park tucked away just a short drive from town. Lots of wildlife to view and trails to hike. Great spot for a nice quick little trip
  • Great place to take a walk. There are lots of good trails that are easy to navigate, with some cool viewpoints.
  • Beautiful walking and biking trails. Lots of picnic spots and great fishing!
  • I was accosted by a barking growling aggressive dog on Wednesday May 17 early in the morning. I was walking on the trail that leads from the cc bathhouse along the river. There were employee cabins to my left and the river to my right. All of a sudden I was accosted by a barking and growling sound from a dog who sounded like he/she meant business so I stopped in my tracks. I couldn't see the dog at first and didn't really know what to do. At first I thought it could be a dog in a fenced in area. Further aggressive behavior continued. I then saw the dog. It looked like an Akita. It didn't appear that the dog was fenced in or on a tether. All I could do at the time was stop and stay still in one spot. I am a handicapped senior and could put up little or no defense. I waited to see if the owner was around to take charge of the dog. It took awhile and a woman appeared from the rear of a cabin and called the dog. The dog did not want to come when called. She finally put the dog inside. When I first saw the woman, I asked if the dog was tethered. She said nothing, as the dog was not indeed tethered. I told her I was not happy with the situation. She said, "Oh, it's no big deal." I told her I thought it was a "big deal." I was out taking morning pictures. I took a picture of her with her dog at the cabin stoop. She slammed the cabin door and stayed inside the cabin. I have a picture of the car parked by the cabin she was in. It would seem to me that a park employee should not be breaking park rules and miffing park visitors.
  • Turtle River State Park is such a nice unassuming area tucked away in a spot you wouldn't expect. Driving west from Grand Forks to get there you just start to leave the Red River Valley region and don't expect a place so peaceful and enjoyable to be tucked a mile off the highway. The facilities are well taken care of and the ranger staff is always helpful. Take a hike or two and enjoy.
