  • Afton State Park is a unique place. My dog and I usually spend at least 5 hours there a week hiking the trails and the dog lives to splash around in Trout Brook. We always come in the "back" or unoffi...  more »
  • We like to head to Afton for the camping. Sites are pretty spread out and you don't usually hear your neighbors (if you do they are the Boy Scouts and they tend to quiet quickly). Most sites are only ...  more »

  • It's a nice place to get away from the cities and go for a walk and have a picnic. It's on the St Croix River so you can go fishing as well as swimming. When we were there, there was a free Bluegrass Band playing that night. Good times, will go back again.
  • Saw alot of deer. Good picnic areas as well as covered areas for shade or cover from rain. I caght a few fish and had a great workout. One of the nicest state parks in Minnesota
  • Amazing staff, clean bathrooms, mowed paths, and great camping. Btw unless you have a big group or get a cabin there is only backpack in sites that are 3/4 of a mile away. Keep that in mind if you camp.
  • Great park, very close to the city. Lots of hiking trails, and lots of variety from prairie to deep woods, flat to hundreds of feet of elevation change. I refer to one trail as my 'church', try to guess which one!
  • My husband and just stopped by as a last-minute walk to work up an appetite for dinner. So much fun! Animal tracks, a beaver, fish jumping, woodpeckers, and of course wildflowers. Bonus discovery: Pok├ęstops! :)
