Kingdom Come State Park‎

Kingdom Come State Park is located on and around Pine Mountain. The park is mainly made for primitive camping, but RVs and pop-ups are allowed to camp there as well. RV travelers should be aware that the steep roads and tight turns might make access difficult for larger RVs. Parking is also in short supply. No hookups and no shower facilities are provided. Even with these limitations, the park might be worth the added hassle for visitors. Impressive rock formations, unspoiled wilderness areas, 14 hiking trails and multiple mountaintop views make a visit to the park a dramatic experience. The 38-mile Little Shepherd Trail can also be reached from the park, just 37 miles west of St. Paul.
