Blue Mounds State Park Campground

Blue Mounds State Park Campground Professional Review and Guide

"To geologists, Blue Mounds are outcrops of Sioux quartzite that jut out across a mile and a half of western Minnesota prairie (Blue Mounds is one of the largest expanses of prairie found in the state's park system). To pioneers crossing this prairie, these bumps on the western skyline appeared blue--hence the name. Since the first three American bison were introduced here in 1961, Blue Mounds has become home to more than 40 of the animals. And for campers seeking a unique setting amid the prairies of southwestern Minnesota, Blue Mounds is an inviting natural "speed bump" that rewards those who take the time to slow down and look around.

The campgrounds are situated along Mound Creek at the northern end of the Blue Mounds outcrop. The main campground consists of 73 campsites, laid out along one side of the road or in three main loops on the other."

The trails were not very challenging but very private and easily accessible.
