  • Another quiet weekday in another Minnesota State Park. I was brought to this State Park during my geocaching adventures. The water was beautiful and still on this day in spite of the wind. A beautiful...  more »
  • I spontaneously decided to go to this park on a Saturday afternoon in the end of September. It's about 2.5 hours from the Cities, but an entirely different world. The scenery is simply stunningly beau...  more »
  • We had a wonderful spot and went with our friends. The Staff was very friendly and helpful as our friends got stuck causing traffic jams. But everyone was cordial, and it was just overall a great park...  more »

  • Heat is very hard to control. Cooler for hours, than went into overdrive at night. Maybe just needs new baseboards. Otherwise a wonderful experience in camper cabin. Beautiful trails to hike. Will return.
  • Great place nice cabins but bring your own cleaning supplies because it seems no one cleans up after they leave so bring your bleach and floor cleaner maybe Lysol because it kills germs. So it's clean enough for you to enjoy your stay then clean after you leave so the next people can enjoy their stay
  • quite in Feb, comfortable day to hike. open and rolling moraines. so quiet
  • Glacial Lakes State Park is one the coolest parks to get lost in (in cental Minnesota). The rolling hills and depressions (kettles and kames) make for a wonderfully scenic adventure! While the park may not be much for fishing (just go to nearby Starbuck to scratch that itch), there are more trails to explore here than can hope to be explored in a day (keeps me coming back!). There are backpack campsites both in the forested and prairie areas that offer some serious privacy from all but the most adevnturous. Speaking of adventure, make sure to check out the horse trails, as they are the ones that offer the best hiking in my humble opinion.
  • Great park! Lots of hiking, fishing on the lake (no motorized boats), the cabins are warm for in the winter, backcountry camping sites. And dogs are allowed.
