The terrain in this park is dramatic, with waterfalls, rivers and rapids, an ice cave, and the ruins of a historic quarry. There are 17 miles of hiking trails that traverse the park along the Kettle River and waterfalls. There’s also a short bike trail that connects with the Willard Munger State Trail, 160 miles of both paved and natural multiuse trails. There are cross-country ski trails in the winter, as well as snowmobile trails that also connect to the Munger Trail. The Kettle River is a turbulent river, offering some challenging paddling for canoers and kayakers. The campground is situated on the Wolf Creek Trail, which provides easy access to the other park trails. The campsites are somewhat snug, but with the amount of recreation offered, most campers won’t spend the day at the campsite anyway. Pets are allowed.
