It was nice to be at a state park right near town. The park was nearly empty on a Monday morning so we enjoyed a quiet stroll. The pond was drained but looked like an interesting place to swim! Would have liked some more gravel trails as it was wet after a morning rain.

We really enjoy hiking, so tried out the Hiking Club trail on our recent visit to New Ulm. It was great! If you like a scenic walk, I highly recommend.

We had a family reunion picnic here on a Saturday afternoon/evening. The pool is fantastic, grounds were very clean and inviting, lovely groomed trails.

Wonderful, beautiful place with amazing wildflowers and plentiful wildlife. On my 2.8 mile hike I saw monarch butterflies, my first Pileated Woodpecker, and the most beautiful golden-brown doe I've ever seen. Remember though that this is Minnesota so bring your bug spray. Haha. We have mosquitos that can suck you dry and they are very persistent. And stay hydrated. Heat... More

I came out here in July to do some hiking. I parked by the swimming area and was impressed by how nice and clean the man made beach was. It was pretty full when I walked by. The trail I hiked wound its way through the woods. There were some really nice hills for hiking out here and the trails... More

We just enjoyed walking about in certain areas along the river. There is man-made, sand-bottom lake there of varying depths complete with sand all around its perimeter. If I were a camper, I'd camp here.

Love love love this park. It's trails are well maintained, has a wonderful sand bottom pool and in the summer lots of berries to pick. Watch out for the mosquitos though! A 13 month pass is one $25 and gets you into all MN State parks. If you live in NU the pass is worth it even if you're only... More

We stayed in the semi-modern area (electrical outlets and walking distance to real bathrooms/showers). Bathrooms were very clean and relatively new. Campsites are pretty close quarters, considering nearly everyone has a large camper/trailer. Swimming pool is fantastic. Chlorinated water, sandy bottom, lifeguards on duty and surrounded on all sides by sandy beach. There's a very shallow side and one small... More

Gates lock you into the park/camping area from 10pm to 8 am. That is an accident waiting to happen! No one at the office told us that.
