Hok-Si-La earns a place in this book not only for its roomy, spacious and woodsy campsites but for a unique campground policy. When you drive up to your campsite, you'd better unload all your gear as fast as you can because after 15 minutes you have to remove your car from the campground. Vehicles must be parked outside the security gate during your stay and can only be brought back in on departure. To park your car, hike back to your site--the farthest is about .2 mile from the parking lot. Use a cart to haul your camping gear in and out of camp to transport groceries or other items. At Hok-Si-La, it's well worth the trek. There are four campsite groups at Hok-Si-La; three are for one or two tents, and one area has six designated group sites.

If you are looking for a rustic experience, this state park is PERFECT! The valley is narrow and the camp sites are fairly spaced out. We stayed at a cart-in site on the far end of the park. There are several water crossings with your vehicle - so don't bring the Mini Cooper! 4WD works best, though we made it with our Ford Taurus. There are 4 or 5 water crossings to get to the far end of the park, so if it rains hard you could get trapped by floodwater. This park has great bluff trails, good trout fishing and is absolutely beautiful! Beaver Creek is one of my favorite Minnesota State Parks!
