  • Very welcome to the visitor center. A film allows you to discover the origin of the place and history related to the Indians. A small trail also lets you see small still used careers. Access is charged $ 7.

  • A stunning place that you will not forget. Walking the land is a peaceful and spiritual experience. In the visitor's center we had a lovely conversation with a pipe carver. I wish I could purchase one of the masterpiece pipes - fine works of art that are definitely worth trading a horse for!
  • Beautiful place. Late fall in the prairie is no less spectacular than other seasons. Gorgeous views, amazing scenery, and fantastic history.
  • If you've ever heard of the "peace pipe" used by native Americans, come check this place out! A great learning and cultural experience for all ages. Staff are friendly, facility is pristine, and the natural sites of the area are spectacular to view.
  • This national park is a must visit if you are in SW MN. There is so much history to learn and so many interesting things to see as you walk along the trail. There are a few rock formations that look like faces, as well as a spectacular waterfall at the center of the park. As you exit the park you are able to go into a small quarry, which allows you to see what it was like for the native Americans that extracted pipestone rock to carve peace pipes. Go check it out!
  • Beautiful spot. Great for a quick stroll in nature by yourself or a grand event (such as a wedding) with friends and family. Wonder photo opportunities.
