I've been to this park multiple times and I love it every time. We have camped here as well and it has beautiful sites with vegetation between each site. There was a good amount of privacy. Not to mention the atmosphere is comfortable and nice:)

Spent time in Mankato and came across the park. The falls is beautiful. It was nice to walk the trails and see nature. Lots of tables if you have time to have a picnic.

After driving from South Dakota we wanted to stretch our legs. We picked this park because it was on the way to our destination and from other reviews. It was really nice. We took the stairs down and walked along the river to the falls for a close up. The soft sandstone had tons of carvings in them. I actually... More

Made last minute reservations for the fourth of July and had a wonderful time! The falls were fabulous, spent almost half a day there, grounds were clean and well cared for with a variety of things to do in he surrounding the area. Make sure to sent aside time for the Shells Brewery tour in New Ulm!

This park is perfect for a day picnic or to stay a while! Picnics by the waterfalls are lovely and there are many great places for photo ops. We go there often. There is also a lot to enjoy if you want to camp - we've been there for camping and even rented the camping cabin a couple of times.... More

I have taken many pictures of my children at Minneopa State Park. The area is so scenic and when the falls are going full force, it's just beautiful. It's a great place for a picnic and a hike as well.

A Park Pass is only $5 for your car and the walk to the falls is only about a block. It is so worth the stop. The bridge and falls were beautiful. Definitely worth your time.

Very pretty park, took senior pictures in this park! Great place, and not many people around. We saw one other person the whole time we were there. Hidden from everyone nicely as well.
