  • This is a nice park near Waite Park and St Cloud where one can go to have a sense of being out in the woods while still being close to civilization (but don't expect great cell phone signals! ;-) ) It...  more »

  • Just awesome! Only a half mile walk to some of the best swimming in the state! Super clean clear water and great jumps for everyone from beginner to daredevil status. Hiking and climbing, great spots for picnics too!
  • First place I go when I have friends visiting from out of town. A very large park covered in beautiful trails and some greater cliff diving. We'll preserved nature for being so close to the city. A must see for those visiting the St Cloud area.
  • Having grown up in the St Cloud area, I have of course heard of the "adventures" at the quarries much of my life but alas I had never seen them. So now finally I have gotten to seem and I was surprised how incredibly large the park it. We toured the park as part of the 2017MN Governors Fishing Opener. We did not have enough time to see the entire place so I will need to get back. #MNGFO2017
  • Great place to go outside and walk around. Good swimming holes and historic notes everywhere. Links to the state parks, lots of trails.
  • Amazing place to walk around and the information you can read about is a welcome addition. A lot of people were enjoying the swimming areas also.
