Visited before it opened on Memorial Day. Looks like a great place to camp. Maps provided do not provide clear directions.

Flandrau State Park is one of our favorite places to camp. We have only ever camped in the electric sites, so I can't speak to the non-electric, group or remote sites. The campground is well maintained and pretty well laid out. Some sites are very close together, mainly in the middle. Other sites are very nicely spread out, mainly around... More

This park is full of beautiful trails and curious wildlife. We've seen something every time we've walked there. There are several scenic overlooks, all breathtaking, especially in the fall. This park is so beautiful it's where my husband chose to propose :)

Lots to do! Camping, lots of hiking trails, swim in the sand bottom pool, park facilities, volleyball, shelter (great for family reunions). Quiet escape in the middle of town.

My extended family goes camping each year. We chose Flandrau mainly because my son (a WWII history buff) found out that WWII German prisoners of war were housed here during the 1940s. This historical information is now in the park's modern group center, with a sign that explains their past history. When we visited, there was a group camping for... More

This park is actually on the city limits of New Ulm. The Park is small and has limited activities. There are a few campsites. The hiking trails have very limited beauty and variability. We hiked around the more interesting trails on the upstream portion of the park. Nearly all the trails are flat. There is a small section of one... More

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.
