  • Was surprised to learn there were such large mounds within this city park and so close to downtown St. Paul. The mounds are fenced in to protect them. There are great views of the Mississippi, barges ...  more »

  • Review background: We were staying in downtown St. Paul without a car and decided to take a bus to visit the mounds. Warning: the recommended stop is not in an area I would consider safe and there are...  more »

  • Beautiful park with plenty of scenic views and winding trails. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the space, and the history of the space is interesting for new visitors. The only reason this is not a 5 star review is the quality of the trails - they aren't really maintained that well, and tend to be in pretty rough shape. I would also not recommend coming to this park after dark - it is perfectly fine during the day though.
  • I would have liked to have seen more historical plaques around the park.
  • As is the case with most St Paul parks, Indian Mounds is beautifully designed and well kept. There is a beautiful vista near the tower where you can watch the sun set over both the twin cities skylines.
  • Worth the extra effort to find an visit for the vistas on the bluff. Lots of room, parking available, great trails access for biking.
  • How can I not give it 5 *? I got married here.

Where to stay in Saint Paul

Places to stay in St. Paul sit concentrated in the downtown area. The Lowertown Historic District, which includes some of the city's oldest buildings, makes a particularly attractive option. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts here can put you just steps from the Mississippi River, while the greater downtown area also offers apartment rentals and hostels. Staying downtown also puts you within walking distance of most of the city's prime attractions. Additionally, you'll find a handful of national-chain hotels on the east side of town near Interstate 494 / 694.
