    Beautiful anytime drive through the park and many activities in the Summer. Short and easy walk from parking area to head of Mississippi. Casual biking is made a bit difficult by the narrow roads and slightly hilly landscape…Some nice hiking trails, just wish more (level ones) were along the lake. Fall leaf-peeping is Wonderful from high atop the park’s fire tower!Update 9/15/2014…. New and safer biking trails just opened on south side of park… Yes!!! Thank you!

    Check the Park’s website before you go – there are lots of daily activities for adults and families. We got to go fishing with provided fishing rods and a ranger to show us how and make boats out of bark and pinecones to float at the headwaters. If you’re going to visit the headwaters of the Mississippi, bring a swimsuit for the kids and a towel. You’re going to want to wade and play and it’s a great stop on a hot day. Anywhere else bring a LOT of bug spray. The mosquitoes and the horse flies are numerous. But easily fended off by bug spray. The views of the unspoiled wilderness are amazing, the hiking trails are fun for both kids and adults. There’s a swimming beach, several play grounds, a wilderness drive, boat and bike rentals, miles of hiking paths and some great historical sites to learn about the early settlers, the native peoples and how and why the park was developed.

    We went there as a whole family to see the Headwaters of Mississippi. We had seen the end of Mississippi River 23 years ago; now we are here at the beginning…

    Great MN. State Park! Pristine wilderness- like surroundings. Headwaters of the Mississippi. What’s not to like? The cry of the Loon & Walleye Pike.

    Overall one of my favorite places in the world. Nothing beats waking up in the tent, heading down to the headwaters, and then hiking around to all the great sites to see.
