  • This Great State park has it all. It is a wonderful place to see the beauty of a river valley and has a host of trails as well as a summer beach. The camping is prefect all year round, although winter...  read more »
  • It's amazing to have this beautiful park adjoining our city! I took a hike on one of the many trails that wind through the woods and along the river. It's so peaceful out there! And in summer the lake...  read more »
  • Great place to camp with quick access to downtown New Ulm and Schells Brewery.
  • The tenting campsites were spacious and clean. Modern facilities were close. Plenty of hiking trails for any level of hiker. Children will enjoy the sand bottom pool.
  • This can be a very fun park. There is a sand bottom pool, a playground, and several trails to satisfy any hiker. This park can also get extremely overcrowded. I came on a hot summer day and had trouble finding a parking spot in the very large parking lot. It almost has more of a city park feel than a state park feel. I would recommend this park to the casual state park goer and not the serious outdoorsman/woman.
  • Nice enough, but the hiking trails didn't have much in the way of variety for both the sights and difficulty. The swimming area looked pretty clean but was man-made.
  • Camping in the park from out of state visiting family when an alert posted on my phone of threatening weather with high winds up to 60-65 mph. When trying to leave the park to find a safer place, a tree was uprooted lying across the road to exit. We turned around to try to exit out the back way but that was locked. Waited 40+ minutes for someone to unlock it to let us out and then told us we could not return because they would be locking it again. Was mid morning before we could return to our camper since the trees had not been removed and no one seemed to even be aware of a problem. No communication or evacuation procedures. Also, no water available in the rustic campground to extinguish campfires.
