My wife and I came here in August for a hike. We started out by going to the Seppmen mill. Nice piece of history here with informative plaques. The mill rises up from the hillside as you walk towards it, very epic. The geology of the area is very nice with large boulders strewn about the countryside. The wild flowers... More

with a small but attractive waterfall -- unless we're in a drought. We've enjoyed walking through it, and it's supposed to be good for camping. We used to take our kids there.

There are two really pretty waterfalls with picnic tables, a bridge crossing over them, and paths to walk along. You pay five dollars to park per car unless you have a state park pass, and there are plenty of trails to walk on. Its a great place for a date, outing, or get together.

A nice little park with two waterfalls. A nice place to bike and hike as well. It is worth a stop if you are in the Mankato area.

Minneopa park has two parts, one section has a campground, the other smaller section has a nice size waterfall with a new bridge over the top, there is a trail to the bottom, the steps are older and uneven, much of the park was built during the WPA there is a pavilion with stone columns

A scenic river valley state park with waterfalls, hiking trails, and old mill and a campground. Minneopa has much to offer. It is also part of the State Park Geocache program. Very rustic with much history in the area.

We stopped to see the waterfall that someone had told us about. It is small but very pretty. There is a good campground.
