When we visit Redwood Falls, one of the best treats is to walk through Ramsey Park. This park was built in the 30's, funded by the WPA. The bridge is wonderful. There are trails, roads, camping area, a small zoo with buffalo, elk, and some deer. If you stop, don't miss the waterfalls. You can get to the Falls by... More

Love living in MN and taking weekend getaways to explore the state. This was a very easy drive from the cities and the hiking was great. The zoo was fun, though there weren't many animals there. The falls were really pretty and raging from all the rainfall we've had. Lots of parks and playgrounds to take the kiddos out for... More

Joined friends and camped for a couple nights. Nice quiet campgrounds. Nice and small. Had public bathrooms, showers. Electic and water hookup. Has a small zoo for kids of all sizes. Nice waterfall, which we had to drive to as bridge was being repaired. Would go back.

Once a State park, was given back to the city of Redwood Falls, making it the largest municipal park in the nation. Reminiscent of the well-known Gooseberry Falls, in Northern MN on the shores of Lake Superior, Alexander Ramsey Park has gorgeous falls emanating from bustling rivers. Miles of trails for hiking, biking, walking, often looking down over beautiful canyons,... More

There are so many great attractions int he land of 10,000 lakes and many, like Alexander Ramsey Park, don't get the airtime when compared to the big tourist attractions in Minnesota. I was in town for business in December and thought, since I had an hour or so of daylight left, that I would head down to the park. I... More

title says it all. It would only take a few hours to see it all and the bridge was under construction. The only nice thing was it had decent trails mapped out.

This is a wonderful park with trails all over the place to hike on. We have hiked to the waterfalls many time and for those that can't hike well, you can actually drive up to the falls and get pretty close to them, so it is just a short walk to see them then. Be careful in the spring when... More

This place is still a gem! What used to be a state park, then taken over by the City of Redwood Falls, is truly "little Yellowstone". Steep, winding roads, forest like thick trees, and of course, the Ramsey Falls water fall. Great places to picnic and gather.
