This beautiful park is at the point where the Crow and Mississippi Rivers converge. There’s both prairie and forest land here, with 18 miles of hiking trails and a trailhead to the Paul Bunyan State Trail for bikers. The river waters are usually calm enough for beginning canoers or kayakers. Within the park grounds there’s a historic site called the Old Crow Wing Village, which now is part of a hiking trail, complete with interesting and detailed signage. The “Chippewa lookout” is a stunning overview to the Mississippi, and a trail from the campground leads to the overview. There’s plenty of wildlife to see, including deer, beaver, and the occasional coyote, and it’s not uncommon to spot eagles and hawks along the river. Campers can reach the Mississippi by going down a wooden staircase. The campsites are well spaced and heavily treed. Pets are allowed.
