My father and I stayed at the lower campground for pheasant hunting opener. It’s a very pretty park. Downsides are no cell service (not really a big deal for us but some people may be upset about this, not the state parks problem either.), small campsites, no real designated pad for tents, train noises – tracks are right on the other side of the river, (I enjoyed hearing it but I could see where others wouldn’t), and no privacy between campsites. The park staff was very nice and informative. I highly recommend this park for a day trip but not necessarily for a overnight stay. I’m used to northern Minnesota parks where it’s highly wooded and this is part of the prairie.

Nice state park with clean campground and restrooms. Lots if trails (with significant elevation changes). I'm sure we will be back.

A hidden gem on the prairie! The upper campground is on the prairie but sites do have shade, a fire ring, table, privacy &a nice bathhouse with showers. Lower Campground is mowed grassy area along the river in the cool shady valley with flat large sites &a a nice bathhouse. A quaint beach area with changing rooms, sand, playground & spring-fed pool. Beautiful picnic areas. Lots a great hiking & a new bike trail that goes into Marshall beginning in the park, 10 miles plus more in town. Nice brewery or DQ in town as your reward!
