  • We recently moved to town from the Northern Minnesota Backwoods and were missing the outdoors. While it wasn't the Chippawaa, the kids had a blast and enjoyed learning about granite mines.

  • When I was in my late teens a group of friends used to swim and dive from the rock at these quarries before it was a park. We would drive from Mpls up there and spend the whole day hanging out. It is the greatest place. The water was crystal clear back then. I will for sure be heading up there soon.
  • 4 stars only because the bathrooms stink horribly and there isn't a bench or anything to make changing easier. A room just for changing would be great! Otherwise we had a great time at the beach!
  • The pools are to small for the amount of people who come here. It is overrun with highschool kids and the gate attendant is not all that friendly of a person. It's a nice area with impressive views and a nice shaded trail. I recommend coming early or before school ends to get the most out of it.
  • Awesome cliffs to jump off of. Picnic tables and grills are nice and bathrooms where very clean
  • Neat park. A little nature, a little history and a little fun
