Frontenac State Park Professional Review and Guide
"Located on a major bird migration route on the Mississippi, this park is popular with bird- watchers, who have cataloged more than 260 species here. The park itself contains bluffs, prairie, and forest—habitats for a wide variety of birds. It’s also a great hiking park, with 13 miles of trails that lead to scenic overlooks.
While there’s no boat access to Lake Pepin or the Mississippi River in the park, public access is just a few miles away. There are also nearly 6 miles each of groomed cross- country ski and snowmobile trails in winter, and there’s a huge sledding hill too. The campsites are well spaced with plenty of trees, providing privacy and shade, and they’re a close walk to spectacular views of Lake Pepin. Pets are allowed."
