  • This park has been our second home for 11 years. We live in Hudson, so it is like a huge playground just about in our backyard! We come solo, or just my husband and I, or with our kids, but almost alw...  more »
  • One of the best State Parks we've camped at! The falls in the fall are amazing and our kids had a great time hiking the trails. Camp sites are clean and quiet. We will be back! 
  • Great hiking trails. Could even be used for training for Grandma's marathon! Nice and wide paths. Well marked, except we did discover that the orange path connected near the red path, which the map di...  more »

  • Willow River State Park in Hudson, Wisconsin is just a short drive from Minneapolis/St. Paul, but it's one of my favorite state parks and the main reason I buy a Wisconsin park sticker each year! Several trails take you to a very scenic and deceptively large waterfall on the Willow River-- it's always fun to see people swimming and cooling off at the base of the falls. The park has excellent campgrounds, a nice beach, nature center, picnicking areas and hiking trails, all within a half-hour drive of the Twin Cities. Bring your camera because the falls are really picturesque!
  • This place a a piece of heaven!! The water falls and the scenery was breathtaking. If you are able to go just before the sunset it is BEAUTIFUL!' This park is a must see if you are a nature lover.
  • This place is a great outdoors experience and is truly a sight to see. The falls are amazing, you can walk around in it. I would not recommend it for small children. My sister and I took 2 12 yr old boys, a 6yr old, a 5yr old and a 4yr old and it was too much for the little ones. The big ones did really great and had more fun than they anticipated!
  • Love this place! So many trails, beautiful year round! Many different loops and some great spots to camp. Only request is that the people who utilize this park respect it and carry out their trash instead of littering the park.
  • I keep reviewing this place and it keeps coming back up as if I never reviewed it. This is a beautiful place and I highly recommend it.
